Samson CL2 Pencil Condenser Microphones are ideal for both recording and live applications and come in a convenient stereo pair

Samson CL2 Pencil Condenser Microphones are ideal for recording and live applications. Available as a matched pair, Samson CL2s are true capacitor condenser mics that feature a high pass filter and a 10dB pad. Providing maximum flexibility for a variety of applications was one of the main design goals. Each CL2 comes with a pair of elements that can easily be detatched to change the pickup pattern to either omni-directional or cardioid. The elements feature three micron, gold-sputtered diaphragms and are designed to handle SPLs of 141 dB (cardioid) and 138 dB (omni).

The CL2 is ideal for recording or miking orchestral instruments, acoustic guitar, piano, overhead miking of drums and cymbals and of course, vocals. Providing great value and usability, the CL2s come in a durable, lightweight aluminum case with a pair of mic clips, pop filters, windscreens, shockmounts and the cardioid and omni capsules.

    Comments about Samson CL2 Pencil Condenser Microphones:

    I bought these balanced pair of condenser mics mainly for live stereo recording at smaller venues. And they do that amazingly well. I simply mount the mics on a stereo bar usually in an AB configuration, and hang them from the ceiling using a deskstop mic stand. Sometimes I'll mount the stereo bar on an extendable mic stand, and run them 8 to 12 feet in the air to reduce ambient noise. In either case, I run the cords to a R24 multitrack which can run on 6 AA's for hours even with headphones & the two condensers which require 48 volts phantom power. So I need nothing from the house, not even power. If you can get a sound feed from the soundboard, it's icing on the cake for the mix. Anyhoot...I've used these several times now recording audio on location from local bands. They have all been very pleased. No they don't give you a professional studio sound. But they are wayyy more than adequate for demo's. I will often shoot video, and replace that audio with the audio captured through these CL2's.
