Incredible Value with This Stereo Pair!The Samson C02 offers a pair of small-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphones — ideal for both studio and stage use. With their sensitive, low-mass elements and high SPL handling, the C02 microphones excel at recording every nuance of sources such as drums, piano, cymbals, and acoustic instruments. If you need to record outside, a foam windscreen is included — it's also handy for reducing plosives on vocal sources. Other features gold-plated XLR connectors, feedback-rejecting supercardioid pickup patterns, and included shockmount microphone clips, and a carrying case with the Samson C02.
