Sennheiser MKH 20 overview

  • 1Description

The MKH 20 P48 Microphone from Sennheiser is a versatile, professional omnidirectional condenser microphone designed for spot instrument, group or ambiance capturing. The 12 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response eliminates noise and rumble associated with natural acoustics. The sensitivity and SPL response makes it a favorite as a main microphone for capturing orchestras and solo instruments. An attenuator switch allows an additional 10 dB of headroom when using in close proximity to signals high in transients. A pressure build-up ring is included and is used to accentuate high-frequency response. The microphone is powered via +48V phantom power source.
