- Miniature hypercardioid condenser clip-on microphone with shock mounted capsule
- Ideal for miking drums and percussions
- Microphone arm with additional angle joint
The C 418 miniature condenser clip-on microphone has a specifi- cally tailored frequency response for drum and percussion miking applications and is an alternative to the C 419 for loud trumpets. Its hypercardioid polar pattern rejects leakage from nearby instruments.
A solid clamp makes it easy to fix the microphone securely on the instrument. The H 418 allows you to attach the microphone on top hoops that may be too thick for the integrated clamp. The C 418 shock-mounted capsule provides high mechanical-noise rejection while withstanding even the heaviest drumstick blows. A two-angle adjustment arm ensures precise microphone alignment.
