Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphones (Pair)
When you need to record or otherwise amplify acoustic based instruments, you need high-quality, transparent microphones that will accurately reproduce every note, tone, and nuance of your performance. What you need is this pair of Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphones from Monoprice!
These microphones come as a pair, so that you can stereo mic a drum kit or mic an acoustic duet. They feature a 6-micron gold-sputtered diaphragm with a cardiod polar pattern. They require +48V Phantom Power to operate and connect to your mixer using a gold-plated XLR plug.
Included with the pair of microphones is a pair of mic clips and a pair of windscreens. The microphones come in a storage box with cutouts in the foam for each item included, as well as four cutouts for additional transducer capsules (additional capsules available separately).
Note that the transducer capsules on these micropphones employ a Cardioid polar pattern. We offer replacement capsules that employ Omnidirectional (PID 600701) and Hypercardioid (PIC 600702) polar patterns, allowing these microphones to be used in a wide variety of applications.

I am currently running these microphones through a FocusRite preamp, and when I compare waveforms of the same recording with this microphone, and one that costs hundreds more, there is no discernible difference in quality.
