The MTR201 Condenser Microphone from Samson features a large, 1" gold-sputtered diaphragm with a cardioid polar pattern. Its 10dB attenuation switch allows it to handle SPLs up to 132dB, making the MTR201 suitable for close miking instruments, vocals, or even as a room mic. Its internally shock-mounted capsule also minimizes touch noise. The MTR201 also features low self-noise and a wide dynamic range. This rugged die cast microphone is bundled with a pop filter, shockmount and protective carry case.
