Multi-pattern Condenser Microphone

  • Three switchable polar patterns: omni, cardioid, figure-of-eight
  • Dual-diaphragm capsule design maintains precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range of the microphone
  • Switchable 80 Hz high-pass filter and 10 dB pad
  • State-of-the-art surface-mount electronics ensure compliance with A-T'sstringent consistency and reliability standards
  • Dual large diaphragms are gold-vaporized and aged to achieve optimumcharacteristics over years of use
