Transformer-Coupled Cardioid Condenser Microphone


Discrete components with Transformer-coupled output
Exceptionally wide dynamic range by four rectangular diaphragms

  • Exceptionally wide dynamic range captures the full, expressive character of instruments and voices – from the caress of drum brushes to powerful vocal performances
  • Four rectangular diaphragms (2 micron) function together to provide a combined surface area twice that of a standard one-inch circular diaphragm
  • Discrete components carefully selected and optimized for maximum performance and compatibility with standalone microphone preamps and console inputs
  • Transformer-coupled output provides smooth sonic character
  • Hand assembled and inspected for 100% quality control
  • Advanced internal shock mounting decouples the capsule from the microphone body
  • Elegant, durable housing of aluminum and brass
  • Included advanced-design custom AT8480 shock mount provides superior isolation
