A Duet of Mics at an Awesome Value!

GearNuts and Studio Projects bring you outstanding microphone quality and value! The Studio Projects C4 small-diaphragm microphone pair can handle your stereo miking needs whether you want a cardioid or omni pattern - both capsules are included. The C4 is a truly versatile condenser microphone that's ideal for instruments such as percussion, flutes, horns, and many others.

Studio Projects C4 Small-diaphragm Condenser Microphone Pair at a Glance:
    • Excellent performance as cardioid mics
    • Omni mode is awesome for ambience, overhead use, and instrument miking
    • Versatile stereo pair with interchangeable capsules

Versatile stereo pair with interchangeable capsules
The C4 is small-diaphragm condenser microphone with interchangeable capsules, selectable -10dB pad/high-pass filter, and a linear low-noise, solid-state amp body. The C4's modular design makes it a useful multi-purpose tool wherever you need to use it - onstage, on location and in studios.

Excellent performance as cardioid mics
As a cardioid (pressure gradient) microphone, the C4 has excellent pickup of on-axis sources while attenuating extraneous sound occurring from around and behind the microphone. This makes it ideal for close miking of individual instruments where bleed from other nearby instruments or sound is undesirable. The C4 cardioids also make excellent stereo pairs for coincident and near-coincident miking techniques such as X-Y and ORTF. Additionally the C4s are quite useful on a drum kit as overheads and on toms.

Omni mode is awesome for ambience, overhead use, and instrument miking
Change to the omnidirectional (pressure) capsules and the C4 offers a warm tonal response and is recommended especially for close miking in favorable acoustical environments. There is totally little off-axis coloration owing to the inherent physical properties of pressure capsules. This, combined with the low self-noise of the microphone amp, makes the C4 omni an excellent ambience microphone - especially in pairs. In a good room, a pair of C4 omnis can provide a vibrant and live feel to recordings, which is not achievable through the use of directional microphones.

Recommended uses are spaced pair omni, Jecklin disc (OSS), piano, guitar, drum overheads and room miking. The C4 is available in pairs with shockmounts, windscreens and case.
