ART Pro Audio C1 Cardioid Side Address Studio Microphone

Add to Wish List
The C1 cardioid condenser microphone delivers a exceptional quality and performance in a highly cost effective solution. The low-mass diaphragm high quality 34mm capsule delivers a clear tone with accurate sonic detail, making it perfect for a wide range of recording and live sound applications.

In live sound and remote recording applications, the ART C1s cardioid pattern offers excellent feedback rejection and better isolation and will give you the best results on most vocal applications and a wide range of solo instruments including background brass and woodwinds, acoustic stringed instruments (violin, viola and cello), drums and percussion.

It offers full frequency response at the front of the microphone with a very controlled and predictable proximity effect - the increased low frequency response when microphone is placed close to sound source. (Vocalists can use the proximity effect to their advantage, adding fullness and more 'bottom end' to the voice. Experienced vocalists can easily incorporate it as part of their overall microphone technique.)

As a condenser microphone, the ART C1 requires phantom power to operate. The microphone's precision-tooled microphone body and dent resistant stainless-steel wire-mesh windscreen protects the internal electronics and microphone capsule ensuring unmatched long term reliability. The C1 comes equipped with an extremely secure custom shockmount. Aluminium carry case included.

I have probably gone through a few thousand dollars of microphones, from Nuemann, AKG, Sennheiser, Audio Technica, Rode, ASTON Origin, Electrovoice, Shure, and believe me they are all great Brands...BUT..doesn't mean they work for your Voice. I can't afford to buy a mic for every occasion, so at the moment it's one mic for my Wife and myself who do VO work. She suffers from mouth clicks because of a long tongue and I have sibilance issues. One of the staff at the L&M Pro Shop said why don't you try the Art C1 just for the hell of it.....I did and OMG it works great for both of us. Going through my UAD Apollo Twin and the Manley VOX BOX plugin I have finally found VO Nirvana. I couldn't believe it! So you see you never know if you try the unexpected.
