Versatile and Affordable Studio Condenser Mic
Samson’s C01 has the entire performance features that you demand from a large diaphragm studio condenser microphone. Featuring a large, dual-layer 19mm diaphragm with a cardioid pickup pattern, the C01 produces a smooth flat frequency response. Its two ultra-thin sensor membranes pick up far more detailed sounds than any dynamic coil. The result is a mic that captures accurate, detailed and smooth audio with warm bass tones and extended top end. You can hear the strings and wood of your guitar, the breath and resonance of a singer, or the brassy shimmer of a ride cymbal with crystal clarity. It’s the perfect solution for recording vocals, acoustic instruments or use as an overhead drum mic.
Hyper-Cardioid Pickup Pattern
While omni and bi-directional microphones are very useful for plenty of applications, the majority of miking situations in recording and live sound require unidirectional or cardioid microphones. The uni-directional nature allows for better separation of instruments in the studio and more keep an eye on over feedback in live sound reinforcement. The C01 condenser’s pick-up pattern is hyper-cardioid, which offers even more side-to-side rejection. When positioned appropriately the hyper-cardioid pick-up pattern means that you can pick up more of the sound you need and less of the sound you do not need.
Solid Construction and Stability
The C01’s design includes a heavy gauge mesh grill, gold-plated XLR connecter and an LED for monitoring its 48V of phantom power. It also comes with a swivel mount that can be attached to any standard mic stand. In addition, an optional SP01 spider shock mount is available for increased mic and sound stability. Samson’s C01 is likely one of the best values available from a professional recording microphone.
