Studiospares S400 Condenser Mic
The Studiospares S400 is an affordable large-diaphragm condenser microphone with an unparalleled smooth and authentic sound. Whether you are new to recording or a seasoned pro, its humble price tag and high-quality build make the S400 a perfect choice for any musician, studio, or engineer.
The S400 features new and improved capsule technology that is reflected in the sheer quality of the audio being captured by the microphone. The result of this microphone is recordings that are transparent and faithfully captured from everything to the smallest nuance.
This microphone features a Cardioid polar pattern, ideal for recording sources directly in front of the microphone and rejecting from the side and the rear. The microphone’s large gold 32mm lightweight diaphragm reacts instantly and performs strongly across a 20kHz – 20kHz sound spectrum.
On the inside, the S400 is manufactured with the JFET preamps and circuity. The junction field-effect transistor preamps offer high input impedance with super low noise figures. This allows you to capture the quietest of nuances in performances without the inconvenience of any hiss or distortion being captured on your recordings.
The microphone's capsule is softly suspended inside the housing to minimise any stage-borne sounds that can result in low-frequency interference while recording, like mic stand bumps or mic position changes. In addition, the capsule is surrounded by a screening that is designed to deter any RF, Taxi and Mobile phone interference, resulting in uninterrupted recording for the cleanest sound possible. Being a condenser microphone, it’s powered by 48-volt phantom power.
Additionally, the S400 comes complete with an included foam windshield to suppress any wind noise. Alongside a highly durable hard case with foam inserts that hold the microphone firmly in place, this makes the S400 able to be taken out on the road and survive the hardships that come with moving from venue to venue each night.
