The principal appeal of the MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule is its directional quality and attention to detail. This mic makes everything sounds like the original.
The first-order cardioid pickup pattern provides superb separation between sound sources.
It is equally suitable for close-up work on acoustic guitar, grand piano, overheads, percussion, wind instruments and vocals as it is for spot-miking symphonies. It can handle incredibly high sound levels.
A flat on-axis frequency response and excellent phase response deliver a totally faithful reproduction of the original sound. The off-axis response is similarly smooth so that any leakage is an accurate reflection of the original, though attenuated according to the true first-order cardioid pickup pattern.
A truly flexible range
The MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule is a pencil microphone
from the flexible Pencil Microphone Series
. You can combine the capsule with any of the preamplifiers in the Pencil Microphone Series to fit your specific needs.
The MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule coupled with the MMP-A Preamplifier
is the worldwide reference standard for extreme sound level handling. For another option, match the MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule with the MMP-C Compact Preamplifier
for compact and precise close-miking of the majority of instruments.
