The C03UCW from Samson is a cost effective, multiple pattern studio condenser microphone designed for project studio applications. High-speed USB output provides direct connection to desktop and laptop computers. The C03UCW provides super-cardioid, omnidirectional and figure 8 polar patterns. Variable patterns provide the flexibility necessary to capture instrument and vocal signals in any recording scenario. Dual 19mm capsules ensure high level and low noise floor on output. Also featured is a 10dB Pad switch that provides extra headroom when capturing excessively loud audio signal, preventing peak distortion. A hi-pass (low-cut) filter switch eliminates noise caused by hum, wind and low frequency ambiance.
