The C4 is a small-diaphragm FET condenser microphone featuring interchangeable capsules, switchable –10dB pad/highpass filter, and a linear low-noise, solid-state amplifier body.

Features include 40-20k Hz frequency response, sensitivity of 12m V/Pa, output impedance of 200 ohms, load impedance of 1,200 ohms, max SPL of 150 dB with –10dB pad and S/N ratio of 78 dB. Also standard is a gold-plated, 3-pin XLR connector.

As a cardioid (pressure-gradient) mic, the C4 provides excellent pickup of on-axis sources, while attenuating extraneous sound occurring from around and behind the mic, making it ideal for close-miking individual instruments where bleed from nearby instruments or sound is undesirable. The C4 cardioids can also be used as stereo pairs for coincident and near-coincident miking techniques (X-Y and ORTF). Additionally, the C4s can be used as drum overheads or on toms. Used as an omni-directional (pressure) mic, the C4 is recommended to be used for close-miking in acoustical environments.

The C4 is available in pairs with shock-mounts, windscreens and case.
