Samson Technologies has added another microphone to its arsenal of large diaphragm studio condensers: the CL8.
Modeled after Samson's best condenser mic, the CL7, the CL8 takes its true capacitor condenser mic element design and adds a second 1.1-inch, ultra thin gold sputtered diaphragm capsule giving it multi-pattern capabilities. Capacitor-based elements are considered warmer, brighter and bigger sounding than electret-based elements. The CL8 features switchable Super Cardioid, Omni and Figure-8 pickup patterns as well as a switchable Hi-pass Filter, and a 10dB PAD for handling signals with high SPLs. It also features an internal shock mount and solid Die-Cast construction. The SP01 spider shock mount is also available to give the microphone added isolation.
