As the nation's largest online musical instrument and pro-audio retailer, Sweetwater knows microphones - and when it's absolute fidelity to the source you're after, you'll want a condenser. Condensers are more responsive to the "speed" and nuances of sound waves than other types of mics, versatile enough to record everything from a rock drum kit to a string quartet. In fact, you could record a full symphony orchestra with nothing but large-diaphragm condenser mics!
The mic locker of Sweetwater's world-class on-site recording studio is packed with the best-sounding vintage and modern condenser microphones ever made. But what do YOU need? Should you buy a large- or small-diaphragm condenser? What about polar patterns - should you opt for a cardioid, omnidirectional, or perhaps a multi-pattern mic? Or should you pick up a shotgun microphone to shoot video? Are you looking at a small-diaphragm condenser to record your acoustic guitar?
With most of our employees putting condensers to the test in commercial or home studios on a daily basis, Sweetwater is uniquely qualified to help you make the right decision. Our highly trained Sales Engineers bring decades of recording experience to your particular situation. Plus, Sweetwater's online Studio Microphones Buying Guide is a virtual treasure trove of information to help you assess your studio or live microphone requirements and build your condenser mic collection.
Sweetwater is committed to providing a vast selection of the right products at the right price, and doing the right thing for our customers doesn't end there! Our fast and free shipping means you'll be laying down tracks with your new condenser microphone in no time. And you can invest in a quality piece of gear (how about a new Neumann?) without worry - we include Sweetwater's exclusive 2-year warranty for FREE with nearly every condenser mic we carry.
