View Full Description
The Samson MTR231a is ideal for use in both live and studio situations. From aggressive guitar cabinets and drums to vibrant pianos, winds and other preferred instruments, the MTR231a is designed to faithfully reproduce a diverse range of instrument tones. Featuring three selectable pickup-patterns - cardioid, omnidirectional and bidirectional; the MTR231a will be the most versatile tool in the studio.
Use the cardiod pattern for any vocal performance where excellent rear-rejection is needed or use it as the "Mid" mic in a Mid-Side stereo setup. Whether your tracking one vocalist or the mic is surrounded on all sides by an ensemble of singers, the omnidirectional setting is ideal for capturing the ambiance of a great-sounding room. Lastly, bidirectional pattern can be used to isolate two sound sources, one or both being vocals (two vocalists, a singer-guitarist, etc.). And with a wide 20Hz-20kHz frequency response, the MTR231a can capture the most dynamic of voices with ease.
The large, 1-inch gold-sputtered diaphragm studio condenser microphone offers a smooth, extended frequency response, as well as low self-noise and a wide dynamic range perfect for recording. It also has a 10db attenuation switch for handling ulta-high levels and is capable of handling up to 134dB. Handling noise and external vibrations are reduced due to it's internally shock-mounted capsule. This rugged die cast MTR231a mic is bundled with a pop filter, shock-mount and protective carry case.
