MESSE06: Behringer Launches New Condenser Microphone
C-3 has selectable pickup patterns for enhanced flexibility 29/03/06
Behringer have been showing off their new C-3 condenser microphone which they say is designed for use as a main or support microphone both for studio recording and live applications.
The C-3 builds on the strengths of the BEHRINGER C-1 condenser microphone, while providing users with more flexibility thanks to its dual diaphragm system. It has two membranes to allow three freely selectable pickup patterns â€“ cardioid, omniâ€“directional and figure of eight. Behringer claim that the condenser capsule provides an exceptionally flat frequency response and ultra-high sound resolution.
Other features include:
Pressure-gradient transducer with shock-mounted dual-diaphragm capsule
Perfect for acoustic instruments, overhead, piano etc
Ultra low-noise transformer-less FET input eliminates low-frequency distortion
LED indicates phantom power being present
Rugged construction with metal die-cast body
Gold-plated three-pin XLR output connector for perfect signal transmission
