Miniature Cardioid Condenser Clamp-On Microphone with 3-Pin XLR Connector

Overview

SLAVE TO THE RHYTHM
for drums and percussion on stage and in the studio

The C518 professional miniature clamp-on microphone is the ultimate tool for recording of drums and percussion. Its cardioid polar pattern rejects overspill from nearby instruments. A continuously adjustable vise-type clamp makes it easy to fix the microphone securely on the rim of drums or percussion instruments. A special snap-on stabilizer keeps the gooseneck in a defined position.

The MPAV from C518M features an integrated, switchable bass cut for adjusting the microphone's frequency response. The C518ML package includes a mini-XLR cable and the unique A400 adapter plate for easy mounting onto wireless body-pack transmitters PT40/45/450/470.
