The Samson C02 pencil style condenser microphone excels in both live performance and recording applications and come in a convenient stereo pair

Equipped with a linear frequency response for superior reproduction, it is also designed to withstand high sound pressure levels. Extremely sensitive, it employs a tight cardioid pattern to reduce feedback. It has a cardioid pickup pattern and gold-plated XLR connectors.

Sold as a stereo pair.

Carry Case and a special shock-mounted mic holder are included to minimize noise and provide additional protection.

 

Features:

• Extended range frequency response for optimum reproduction and exceptionally clear, crisp sound with great transient response.

• Ultra sensitive, low mass element picks up all of the nuances of any performance.

• Tight cardioid polar pattern minimizes feedback problems and effectively rejects signals not originating directly in front of the mic capsule.

• Withstands high SPLs, lending itself to a wide range of micing situations.

• Special shock-mounted mic holder is included to minimize noise and provide additional protection.

• Rugged brass case ensures reliable performance in even the most demanding environments.

• The included foam windscreen can be fitted to greatly reduce wind noise when used in an outdoor environment, or for reducing “P Popping” in vocal applications.

• Lightweight and compact, the C02 can be mounted on any standard microphone stand using the included shock-mounted mic clip.

• Included foam-lined impact resistant carrying case for convenience when transporting three C02 microphones from venue to venue.

• Gold plated XLR Connector.

    Comments about Samson C02 Pencil Condenser Microphones:

    These are some great sounding pencil condensers at a price that is hard to beat! The included stereo bar makes stereo recordings of any source as simple as it can be, since they can both mount on one microphone stand. The CO2's really shine as drum overheads, but work great with acoustic guitars, pitched percussion, and even choirs.

      Comments about Samson C02 Pencil Condenser Microphones:

      I often play play trombone and trumpet and do minor singing at our performances. I can set one to vocals and the other to the horns. The case and kit that came with the mics; excellent! I bought my own power source so that I'm not at the mercy of sound systems without Phantom Power. I'd buy these again.

        This is a simple but powerful mic. Just plug your xlr cable into to bottom of you mic and the other end into your audio interface and start playing. This is the best of its price. Clear, crisp, and awesome sound. Sounds like a 1000 mic for 150. Not to mention but there is 2 that comes with. The shockmount and wind cover that comes with is very useful too. All you need to start recording.

          Well made, for the price, I use them for my Paiste cymbals on my Yamaha DTX E-Drums. Works great.

            I was very skeptical about purchasing these mics. My application is for hi hats and overhead miking. Also on acoustic guitar. These mics gives me the sound I want without eq. I still can't believe the price. These are great mics.

              Comments about Samson C02 Pencil Condenser Microphones:

              When I ordered these over a year ago I was looking for a set of mics to use on the 12th and the sound hole of my Taylor 814. I had tried 2 sm57's, 2 sterling st69's and 2 Neiman 102's. Every mic gave me a different sound,nice but not the sound I was looking for.[...] Not convinced I ordered them and love the way they sound. These mics give me the sound I was looking for. If you record the CO2's are a must have for your studio.

                I've used the CO2s in both a live and studio recording setting. They're all I need for an acoustic jazz setting to mike a little be-bop set of drums that includes an 16" bass drum and Constantinople and K Zildians - the CO2s produce true sounding cymbals and open tonal sounding drums. Great Price - can't go wrong!
