The Astatic CTM-1500VP is a continuously variable-pattern side address large diaphragm condenser microphone designed for professional sound reinforcement, recording and broadcast applications. The CTM-1500VP combines a vintage 1.1", gold sputtered, externally biased capsule design with advanced electronics. Continuously variable pattern control allows the operator to "dial in" precise coverage according to desired miking techniques as well as "dial down" feedback potential according to mic placement and reflected sound waves. Vintage capsule voicing features a slight rising audio response at 6KHz and 12KHz (cardioid) making the CTM-1500VP the choice for vocal, choral and acoustic instruments in fidelity sound reinforcement as well as recording and broadcast applications.
