Senal SCI-3212 overview

  • 1Description

The SCI-3212 Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone with Interchangeable Capsules from Senal is an electret condenser microphone with omnidirectional, cardioid, and supercardioid polar patterns. The microphone's quick transient response and high sensitivity assure detailed and accurate sound in capturing audio for instruments such as pianos, acoustic guitars, and percussion, as well as for dialog when recording outdoors in high-noise environments.

The SCI-3212 is built with a durable metal chassis and has a gold-plated XLR connector, which resists corrosion and delivers better signal transfer. The mic's high-SPL-handling is suitable for recording in high-noise situations and enables close-mic placement to snares and cymbals without distortion.

A shockmount is included for easy boompole-mounting when capturing dialog indoors or in the studio, and a foam windscreen minimizes wind noise when shooting outdoors.

Three Interchangeable Capsules
The adaptability of the SCI-3212 is its greatest asset. The omnidirectional, cardioid, and supercardioid capsules can be changed effortlessly. The multiple polar patterns allow you to use the microphone in a wide variety of configurations when capturing music, dialog, or ambiance in a studio or in the field.
Accurate Sound
The natural response of the SCI-3212, together with its wide-frequency response and sensitivity, translate to better sound in diverse recording scenarios.
The microphone's high-SPL-handling makes it a suitable choice for recording drum overheads, snares, cymbals, or other audio sources in high-noise environments.
Gold-Plated Connector
The gold-plated XLR connector resists corrosion and assures better signal transfer.
Durable Metal Chassis
The durable metal chassis allows the microphone to withstand the rigors of the road, as well as in studios or on location.
Tools for Recording in the Field
A shockmount is included to minimize noise from handling or vibration, and a foam windscreen is provided to minimize wind noise for outdoor use.

    SCI-3212 Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone with Interchangeable Capsules is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product This mic rocks! Not to mention it's super affordable. Needed an on camera microphone for a last minute documentary shoot I was doing for scratch audio. Was shocked by the audio quality. Now I'm using it on my boom pole and am very pleased with its results. The interchangeable capsules are a useful feature. Its basically equivalent to getting three mics for the price of one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice to have the right Mic for the job... So many times I tried to use a Shot Gun for an inside shoot and got some really strange results! Looking back I remember that these spaces were very confined area. What works is a nice little Small-Diaphragm Conducer mic with a super cardio capsule. This kit comes with three capsules so your ready for almost anything.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 mics in one for a great price! My first impressions of this mic have been great and the more I use it the more I like it! The sound quality is amazing and without any audio editing the raw sound is very warm and full. I'm not that knowledgable when it comes to audio so I don't do much post production. This mic has been great for voice over work as well as field recording. I'll adjust volume and maybe throw a couple audio filters on but overall I've been very happy with the raw sound.� The interchangeable capsules are really cool and something I haven't really seen before. I usually test out all three and figure out what works best for my situation but it's great peace of mind knowing you have three options in one mic.� It's honestly ridiculous to get such great quality out of a mic that costs around $60. I'm satisfied with this mic on all fronts. It's been a great addition to my kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mike for the price. Out of the box tests are good with this microphone so far. Much better than I had expected. 3 capsules, wind screen and shockmount for the price you can't go wrong.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As expected At this price point it’s pretty good. You’ll need a pop filter if you use it for vocal when close proximity. I noticed the center contact in the mic body where it meets with the mic capsule off centered quite a bit to a point it almost slipped to side of the mic capsule contact rod. Not a big deal but it’s a workmanship issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So versitile! This microphone is a perfect addition to my arsenal. Whether on a boom, on camera, or used as random ambient pickup, the added capsules insure you have the mic pattern to capture anything you need. It has the clarity you're used to with Senal and a price that you can't ignore. Get one!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound! I have done an A/B comparison with all of the Mics I own. This mic sounds great. I will use it on Hi Hats, Percussions, maybe even Accoustic Guitar. I Like It!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Value 3 Capsules, versatile, and surprisingly good audio. -- And with a little noise removal for quieter recordings, perfectly acceptable.
