Compact condenser microphones that provide premium performance with a common tonal quality for seamless mixing and matching
Building on top of the HC microphones’ low self-noise capsule and preamp design, Rycote has added a range of compact pencil condenser microphones to its portfolio. These microphones offer supercardioid, cardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns which provide a similar tonal quality across Rycote’s entire range of microphones. These three microphones are available as individual mics or matched stereo pairs (to within 0.5dB).
Introducing The New
Cardioid Stereo Pair
Supercardioid Stereo Pair
Omnidirectional Stereo Pair
Three Polar Patterns.
One Sonic Signature.
The CA-08, SC-08 and OM-08 are all built using the same capsule and preamp design as the Rycote HC Shotgun Microphones. This gives each of these mics a similarly low self-noise for their polar patterns, but more importantly, a tonal and sonic signature that makes them cut together seamlessly.
Like the HC microphones, the pencil microphones all have back electret condenser capsules and a machined brass preamp. They also have gold plated Nuetrik XLR connectors and are designed to be resistant to RF interference.
All of our microphones are designed in-house and are made at Rycote in our factory in the U.K. Over the past years Rycote has continued to invest in manufacturing and testing for all of our audio products. We have added clean room and antistatic environments to our facilities to further our mic manufacturing capabilities.
What’s in the Box?
Each of the microphones comes with a customer Rycote mic clip and 5cm foam included inside the box.
