Sony C-800G Overview

  • 1Description

The C-800G Studio Tube Condenser Microphone PAC from Sony is a tube condenser microphone kit designed for vocal and instrument recording where professional-level signal reproduction is crucial. At the core of the C-800G's excellent sonic character is a 6AU6 vacuum tube, which provides outstanding warmth and presence to the input signal to make the microphone a viable solution for instrument and vocal recording.

The large diaphragm condenser element yields a true frequency response of 20 Hz to 18 kHz, with a dynamic range of 113 dB. The result is an even, flat frequency response that maintains detail with low signals and transients. Cardioid and Omni-directional polar patterns are user switchable at the front of the microphone. This allows complete pickup control for instrument and vocal capturing. The microphone sports a Peltier-based cooling system, keeping the vacuum tube at a safe operating temperature and adding to the unique look of the microphone.

    question

    if the vacuum tube is dead, any spare vacuum tube that i can repair my self?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    I would strongly advise against home repairs. First you will void the warranty as you are not a Sony repair technician. The mic takes a 6AU6 vacuum tube but with a mic at that price point it's not like swapping a 6L6 out of a Fender amp. I would very cautious as you say the tube is dead. Cracked is more common due to mishandling of the mic when the tube is to hot. But dead could be something more complex as to why it's dead. I would advise returning it to Sony and let them fix it.
