CAD Audio C9S Cardioid Condenser Microphone (Pair)

Regular price $99.00

Designed for drum overheads, high hat, ride cymbal and stringed instruments,
the C9 cardioid condenser microphone captures the subtle nuance of
acoustic instruments and the presence and attack of cymbals. 

Packaged in a small, rugged, all-metal body, the C9 cardioid condenser microphone is designed primarily for overhead drum miking. The cardioid polar pattern focuses sensitivity to the front of the microphone while minimizing sources arriving from the rear. Transformerless line-driver circuitry improves transient agility while maintaining phase alignment for clear detail. The integral polymer isolation mechanically decouples the capsule from the body minimizing acoustical conduction from the floor through the mic stand. Although designed for drum overheads, the C9 also excels when used on classical stringed instruments, acoustic guitars, and folk instruments. Shock-isolating swivel mount is included.
Phantom power is required.
