Small-Capsule Condenser Microphone

The FC4 Condenser Microphone features a low-distortion, small capsule mounted within an internal shock mount for optimal audio performance. The gold-sputtered capsule is inspired by classic microphone models, with its wide frequency range and transparent sound resulting in optimal audio fidelity. It utilises a low-noise F.E.T. amplifier for a powerful sound at a range of levels, as well as discrete class- electronics and a transformerless balanced output stage for optimised audio performance. The premium-grade circuitry and versatile components makes it ideal for a range of recording applications.

Ideal For Choirs, Strings, Guitars & More

The versatile design of the smaller capsule makes it highly suited to a range of recording purposes. Its large dynamic range makes it ideal for capturing studio-grade recordings of choirs, acoustic and electric guitars and other stringed instruments. It is also great for use as a drum overhead microphone, for hi-hats and even as a room microphone. You can also use two FC4 microphones as a matched pair, ideal for capturing immersive stereo recordings. The transparent sound character and uncoloured tone is highly suited to most instruments,.

Robust, Sleek Design

The sleek brushed brass body not only looks sleek but is highly durable, helping to protect the internal components from superficial damage. The microphone also boasts an integrated pad and filter switched for added versatility. The 10dB pad is ideal for use when recording louder sound source such as electric guitars and drum overheads. The integrated high-pass filter is ideal for stringed instruments such as acoustic guitars, helping to remove any low-end rumble. The gold-plated XLR connector ensures optimal signal integrity for improved audio performance. Additionally, the microphone comes complete with a dedicated shock mount designed for isolating the microphone from unwanted vibrations.
