Condenser Microphone with Windscreen, Shock Mount and Case

Overview

The C4500BC large-diaphragm condenser microphone in front-addressed format is specially designed for on-air broadcast work. It provides a cardioid pickup with voice-friendly tuning and a low proximity effect, as well as high RF/ EMI insensitivity. The exceptional low self-noise (8dB-A) and its 165dB maximum SPL capability also make the C4500BC a great tool for close-miking of loud instruments like bass drums, brass instruments and guitar amps.

The C4500BC comes complete with an H85 spider-type shock mount, W4000 windscreen and a metal carrying case.
