Samson C02

SuperCardioid Pickup Pattern Gold-plated XLR connectors Carry Case & shock-mounted mic clips included Sold as stereo pair


Samson C02 Condenser Microphones offer high-quality audio performance in an affordable package. Sold as a pair, the C02 microphones are ideal in applications requiring multiple mic placements, including percussion instruments such as cymbals and overheads as well as string instruments like guitar and violin. Using multiple mics help ensure accurately captured audio with increased detail for your recordings.

The C02 features a low-mass capsule with a cardioid polar pattern. A cardioid pattern captures a narrow pick up area right in front of the microphone, with a result that minimizes ambient room noise and signal from nearby instruments and monitors that may cause feedback. A wide, linear frequency response results in rich detail while minimizing low frequency noise. The Samson C02 Condenser Microphone is a great solution for both live sound and studio recording applications.
