The C4 is small diaphragm condenser microphone featuring interchangeable capsules,
switchable -10dB pad/high pass filter and a linear low-noise, solid state amplifier body.
The microphone?s modularity makes it a useful multi-purpose tool intended for all-around
use on stage, on location and in studios of all caliber.
As a cardioid (pressure gradient) microphone, the C4 provides excellent pickup of on-axis
sources while attenuating extraneous sound occurring from around and behind the mic.
This makes it ideal for close miking of individual instruments where bleed from other nearby
instruments or sound is undesirable. The C4 cardioids also make excellent stereo pairs for
coincident and near-coincident miking techniques such as X-Y and ORTF. Additionally the
C4?s are quite useful on a drum kit as overheads and on toms.
Used as an omni-directional (pressure) microphone, the C4 offers a warm tonal response
and is recommended especially for close miking in favorable acoustical environments. There
is very little off axis coloration owing to the inherent physical properties of pressure capsules,
and it is this – combined with the low self-noise of the microphone amplifier that makes the
C4 omni an excellent ambience mic ?especially in pairs. In a good room, a pair of omni?s
can provide a vibrant and live feel to recordings, which is not achievable through the use of
Recommended uses are, spaced pair omni, Jecklin disc (OSS), piano, guitar, drum overheads
and room miking. The C4 is available in pairs with shockmounts, windscreens and case.
