A pair of small condenser mics that operate in stereo to pick up
precise acoustic sounds and vocal harmonies.
This microphone set includes two Behringer C-4 Small-Diaphram
Condenser Microphones that are built to capture the performance of a
choir, piano, or any other vocal or acoustic sound source to provide
a beautiful true-to-life sound. Sold in perfectly matched pairs,
these outstanding condenser mics are especially great for live
applications because their non-reflective finish eliminates unwanted
glare caused by stage lighting.
What is a condenser microphone?
A condenser mic is ideal for capturing vocals or acoustic
instruments. Though typically used in recording settings, condenser
mics can also be used live. By their very nature, condenser
microphones are much more sensitive than dynamic microphones,
enabling them to pick-up even the subtlest of signals. Thanks to
their cardioid (heart-shaped) sound-reception pattern, C-4
microphones pickup your source signal while rejecting off-axis
sounds that can ruin an otherwise perfect recording. Another
difference between condenser and dynamic mics is that condenser
microphones contain active circuitry that requires phantom power
(+48 V DC) for operation. You can power them from most any
phantom-power equipped mixer.
Once connected to your sound system, you'll notice these twin
pro-caliber microphones have exceptional frequency response (an
average boost of 4dB between 1kHz - 8kHz). For those of you who are
new to condenser mics, this basically means you'll get a slightly
brighter sound that will give the perfect shape to cymbals and
overhead miking. Acoustic pianos and choirs will also benefit
greatly from this frequency response.
The cardioid pickup pattern provides unparalleled sound source
separation and feedback rejection. C-4 mics contain ultra-low-noise
transformerless field-effect transistor (FET) input circuitry that
can handle extreme dynamics (from 20 Hz to 20 kHz) and has a maximum
sound pressure level of 136 dB. C-4 mics also feature a switchable
low-frequency rolloff to eliminate infrasonics (mic handling noise;
nasty sounds created by creaky stages), as well as a switchable -10
dB input attenuation to accommodate for hot signals, such as a
really loud vocalist or an enthusiastic cellist.
