The C4 Mk II is small diaphragm condenser microphone set 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 mic 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 directional microphones.

Recommended uses are, spaced pair omni, Jecklin disc (OSS), piano, guitar, drum overheads and room miking. The C4 is available in pairs with mic clips and windscreens.
