Studiospares S990 Cardioid Mic
A cardioid multi-application microphone that is equally at home with an orchestra, a band or a vocalist. The back electret capsule provides an uncompromising sound through the response being held within very tight limits through the 18Hz - 21kHz range. The transient response is excellent mainly due to the 22mm diameter capsule which easily captures the zing of hi hats or the thud of a bass drum. Unusually the S990 includes a pad with three sensitivity options, 0, -10dB and -20dB. Maximum SPL is 142dB @ 1kHz. Sensitivity is -40dB ref 1 volt/pascal. Additionally a switched high pass filter cuts in below 80Hz at 12dB/octave to filter out unwanted high energy low frequencies. Powering is via the internal 9V PP3 battery or 24 - 48 volt phantom powering. This S990 is very versatile and represents astonishing value for money and would be difficult to fault whatever the application. Supplied complete with a microphone clip, pouch, battery, foam windshield and a thread adaptor.
