The MC 834 condenser microphone features an extremely linear frequency curve and a frequency response of 20 to 20,000 Hz. Due to its cardioid polar pattern it has a high gain-before-feedback. Without pre-attenuation, the microphone has a SPL capability of 130 dB, with pre-attenuation up to 150 dB. It also offers a dynamic that cannot be reached by any digital recording system. The microphone has a balanced output and can be powered by phantom power between 12 and 48 V. The MC 834 condenser microphone is a universal studio microphone to be used for digital recording, both lead and back up vocals, voice-overs, miking of pianos, strings and brass instruments. It is also suited to the home recording artist.
