Studiospares S1005 Condenser Microphone
The Studiospares S1005 Condenser microphone is a superb entry-level microphone ideally suited for musicians, podcasters, voiceover artists and sound engineers that are looking for pristine, accurate capture. With over 20 years of refined design going into the S1005 you can expect exceptional build quality, alongside the S1005’s full frequency response, the build quality isn’t overlooked looked with the affordable price bracket.
The Studiospares S1005 condenser mic features a 1-inch gold sputtered capsule. This results in a great connection and sensitivity characteristics to the microphone, meaning it will react well to the slightest nuances when recording. A perfect example is the application of recording orchestral strings, the S1005 will handle capturing every dynamic of the performance with ease.
Flat Frequency Response
The S1005 features a flat frequency response ranging from 20Hz – 20kHz. With a presence rise at 12kHz and the ability to respond down to 20Hz which is virtually inaudible, the S1005 will have no issue capturing any frequency you'll require with great integrity. With the added presence at 12kHz, the S1005 will add great clarity and life to whatever you decide to record. The S1005 would be ideal for musicians and engineers seeking to faithfully capture vocals, stringed and wind orchestral instruments and even piano.
Moving to the internal side of this microphone, the S1005 is manufactured with the JFET preamps and circuity. The junction field-effect transistor preamps offer high input impedance with super low noise figures, resulting in no low-frequency distortion on your recordings. Being a condenser microphone, it’s powered by 48-volt phantom power.
Cardioid Polar Pattern
The Studiospares S1005 features a Cardioid polar pattern, ideal for recording sources directly in front of the microphone and rejecting sound from the sides and behind the mic. In addition, the mic’s capsule is manufactured to be artificially aged to provide a ridged and rugged ascetic, primed for any application and able to withstand any abuse during recording whether in the studio environment or out on the road touring every night.
This S1005 is constructed with a copper mesh pop blast filter that is specifically designed to reduce and eliminate any interference you may encounter, resulting in a clean and pristine representation of any sound source. Additionally, the S1005 comes with an elastic suspension, the ultimate answer to mount the microphone as it will isolate any floor noise such as mic stand bumps from the recording source.
