The Sony C 35 P is a microphone from Sony´s golden aera. It is a cardiod, small diaphragm, top adress microphone and needs 48v phantompower.The sound is somewhere between a Neumann Km 84
i and a Shoeps Colette. There´s a side adress version,the Sony C 36
P with the same capsule and soundwise very similar.These microphones are excellent for
room, piano, overheads, percussion, acoustic guitar... and a lot of other stuff.
