Universal Audio SD-3 Overview

By B&H Photo's

Add vintage sound and vintage look to your live-sound and studio-recording setup with the Universal Audio SD-3, a cardioid dynamic microphone featuring a rugged all-metal construction and cool, retro look. The SD-3's hand-selected dynamic capsule can handle extreme SPL while the directional, cardioid polar pattern rejects off-axis sounds, making the mic ideal for snare drums, guitar amps, brass, and more.
