When making decisions about sound, studio monitors and your room are most important, but when recording, the Microphone can become as important as your room and sometimes even more so. This is why we take great pride in the varied selection of Microphones we have acquired. From Vocals, Voice Over, Foley, Sound FX, Instruments, etc... we can handle it all. Again, we invite you to come check out our studio and listen to the difference that making the quality of sound a priority makes.
The Neumann U 87 Ai is probably the best-known and most frequently used studio microphone the world over. Its smooth and refined sound is as iconic as its elegant exterior design. The U 87 Ai is the standard microphone for speech and vocals. Three polar patterns plus pad and low cut options make it adaptable to a wide range of applications.
The CU-44x MK II has a revolutionary design featuring two titanium matched capsules for low and high, with 100 volt internal power for super wide dynamic range and headroom. The transformerless design, with a slight bump above 14kHz gives a very pleasing air in the high end with remarkable transient response. Perfect for vocals, overheads, and acoustic instruments delivering a very pleasing natural sound. Match this with a modern preamp for ultra-low noise and a sonic clarity that is immediately obvious to the ear.
The CU-44X MK II compares very favorably with the older vintage mics in the bottom end but has a much more pleasing high end. This mic has a proven record of great recordings on vocals or instruments.
Тhis high-quality dual-membrane large-diaphragm condenser microphone captures vocals and instruments with pristine clarity, depth and detail, making it the perfect starting point for emulating a plethora of timeless studio microphones.
Edge Duo’s dual-membrane capsule design feeds two separate XLR output channels via the included Y-cable, which allow the Duo to accurately emulate the characteristic on- and off-axis response of each mic for true multi-dimensional mic modeling..
The Z5600a II large-diaphragm condenser is one of the most versatile tube mics in today's market. With 9 graded steps through omni, cardioid and figure eight patterns, -10dB pad and bass cut, the Z5600a II finds uses in a huge number of applications, from miking a live drum kit to overheads on a choir. Above all though, this excellent mic has won its praise on delivering superb vocal recordings, with natural warmth and incredible detail.
Hand-made metal housing, hand-crafted solid brass chassis and gold-sputtered diaphragms all work together to ensure maximum reliability in all sonic environments for many years.
The set includes a Schoeps CMC-6U pre-amp, and a MK41 Supercardioid Capsule.
The CMC series is one of the most popular pre-amps from Schoeps. Multiple use capsules are available. The MK41 capsule offered in this box set is supercardioid. This capsule is strongly directional and less susceptible to acoustic feedback. The MK41 is not colored by reflections arriving off axis as are most shotgun type microphones in indoor settings. This makes it an effective alternative to the shotgun microphone. With the use of an active extension cable this capsule may also be extended remotely from the pre-amp for situations where space is an issue.
All of these features make this microphone set one of the most popular and respected in the world.
A high-performance small diaphragm condenser, the Verge’s pristine, transparent response and unusually high SPL handling mean it excels on brass, drums and cymbals as well as piano, strings and acoustic guitar.
When combined with the included native mic emulation plug-ins, the Verge takes on the character of some of the finest small diaphragm mics in existence, delivering stunning detail and realism with no additional hardware required.
With three capsules for even sharper, and more uniform directivity the Sanken CS-3e moisture-resistant shotgun microphone gives professional sound recordists high-end audio quality for capturing clear dialogue, foley, and sound effects in challenging environments.
Its long and focused reach, low noise, and strong output yield top-tier audio performance in a lightweight design. Plus, it features a selectable 100 Hz low-cut filter for minimizing rumble and bass buildup. Thanks to the CS-3e's multi-capsule design, proximity effect is nearly eliminated while maintaining a consistent tonal signature at various distances.
The CS-3e shotgun microphone exhibits a steady supercardioid polar pattern across the frequency spectrum, allowing it to attenuate the 90° off-axis points by about 14 dB from 1 to 2 kHz, by 18 dB at 4 kHz, and by 24 dB at 8 kHz. For independent and major film, television, and location recording gigs, the CS-3e is Sanken's flagship mono shotgun microphone.
The CSS-5 Stereo Mono Switchable Shotgun Microphone from Sanken is designed for capturing stereo or mono signal and can be used for television, film, concert recording, sound design and much more. The flexibility of the CSS-5 lies within it's ability to capture in Normal (stereo), Mono and Wide (stereo) modes.
The accurate, transparent signal reproduction is based on an array of five directional condenser elements, with PPS (Polyphenylene-Sulfide) diaphragms to provide optimum humidity / temperature stability. The CSS-5 is equally responsive in the horizontal and vertical planes with high sensitivity, wide frequency response and excellent dynamic range. The CSS-5 is small and lightweight with switchable mono / stereo functions. The standard 19mm diameter permits use of a wide range of accessories developed for enhanced performance and field mobility.
The RE20 dynamic cardioid microphone is truly an industry standard, a firm favorite for broadcasting, podcasting, and sound engineering worldwide. Its popularity also extends into music production as a premium grade instrument microphone. Its Variable-D design and heavy-duty internal pop filter excel for close-in voice work, while an internal element shock-mount reduces vibration-induced noise.
An easy "bass tilt down" switch corrects spectrum balance for use in long-reach situations or other bass attenuation applications, making it great for acoustic and electric bass, as well as a kick drum.
The H4 SuperMINI 5.1 Surround Sound Microphone from Holophone is a camera-mountable microphone designed to achieve professional 5.1 surround audio capturing and monitoring. It offers an integrated multichannel preamplifier, virtual surround headphone monitor and matrix surround encoder in a compact package, mountable on any professional-quality video camera.
The microphone capsule features six elements that are can send signal to a matrix encoded, stereo analog output. Six line-level outputs (L, R, C, LFE, LS, RS) provide a pre-encoded alternative for isolating surround signal to discrete tracks on multitrack recorders, external surround processors, mixers, etc. Virtual Surround Monitoring provides a virtual 3-D representation of surround encoded audio signal on standard stereo headphones.
A center-channel input connection may be used for connecting a mono microphone, such as a shotgun or lavalier microphone, to enhance sonic opportunity options. The Holophone H4 SuperMINI is a powerful tool that brings surround sound recording, encoding, and monitoring capabilities into the hands of operators.
