This mic is the worldwide reference standard for extreme sound level handling. Designed to be hidden from view, the diminutive design and high performance of the 4011C Compact Cardioid Mic makes it the outstanding choice for unobtrusively miking all types of television, film, theatre, concert and studio performances.
When used to spot-mike larger orchestras, these mics are hard to beat. Capable of handling high SPLs without distortion, the mic is perfectly tailored for close-miking applications; minimizing bleed from other instruments. In film and TV studios, they are excellent for off-camera voice recording or Foley work. For live on-camera recordings, their matte black finish gives them a classic yet inconspicuous appearance, while for sound reinforcement in concert halls, theatres and houses of worship, they provide clean, natural sound while reducing the noticeable effect of lighting reflection.
The MMP-C Compact Microphone Preamp is an ultra-compact preamp with active drive for impedance balancing. It has a slightly softer character than the other preamps for our pencil microphones.
