ME-406 - instrument condenser microphone

Instrumental cardioid condenser microphone ME-406 has been developed for use in cases when it is necessary to a wide frequency range, high output level, rapid response and compact design. Thanks to a broad range of frequencies (from 20 Hz to 20 kHz) ME-406 able to fully transfer the sound of an instrument, at the same time, its high orientation allows you to minimize the unwanted noise. This is an excellent microphone to record drums, woodwind and string instruments. Excellent acoustic characteristics of the ME-406 allow you to use it also for the household records.
