  • Overview


    This highly intelligible and versatile gooseneck condenser delivers dependable performance in challenging environments. Its small-diameter, alternating gooseneck design provides flexible positioning while maintaining a well-contoured appearance. The mic’s low-profile element provides a narrow hypercardioid polar pattern with 90º acceptance angle. It is equipped with a recessed switch that permits low-end roll-off for reduction of low-frequency ambient background noise and a mute switch with an LED that lights when the mic is on.
