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.

Samson C02 Small-diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone Pair Features:
  • Cardioid Pickup Pattern
  • Gold-plated XLR connectors
  • Carry Case & shock-mounted mic clips included
  • Sold as stereo pair
  • Requires +48V phantom power
The Samson C02 offers high-performance — but cost-effect — solution for stereo recording!

Not just a great deal -- AMAZING

YEARS doing sound both on the road and in the studiom and I have never once put the C02 on something and thought, "man, what a cheap mic." There are certainly better mics, but these really sound fantastic, and for the price I'm not sure why everyone in America doesn't already own a pair ;)

Big bang for the buck!

As a drummer I am always looking for great overhead mics. I've used Shure SM 81s for the last 10 years. These sound equally as good as the 81s. I have also done side by side comparisons with these and the AKG C414 XL II. The CO2s may not have as many options as the 414s but what they do offer is a great quality stereo pair of mics for a great price! A must have for every home studio!

Can't beat em for the money

I am STILL blown away by these. Have had them for maybe 4/5 months. Recorded acoustic gtrs, congas, other hand percussion and they always deliver. Very clear crisp sound.

great sound!

when i first used this mics as overhead mic, i thought i was having a new drumset. i cant believe what i'm hearing, for this price range. my overhead tracks never sounded this good before. i can really hear my cymbals crashing around. the output is also very loud. for me it's almost an all-around mic if you just know how to deal with it. No regret!

These are amazing. I'm using them as Overheads for my drums, and the clarity is unmatched for anything even double the price. The first thing I noticed was how the attack on the ride came out. When I heard that "tink tink tink" sound come out on my recording THAT clear, I was instantly motivated to just write a review about these. I can NOT wait to see how my acoustic guitar will sound when I aim one mic at the sound-hole, and one at the fret-board!
