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:

      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.

          Comments about Samson C02 Pencil Condenser Microphones:

          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!

          "These mics blew me away. I bought them for live use but the sound is so great that I immediately bought a pair for the studio. I have used them for drum overheads, acoustic guitar and brass and they continue to amaze me. Syncopow!"
