Small Body - Big Sound!
As one of the world's smallest condenser microphones, the M1290 offers an integrated preamp and detachable cable for the ulitmate in convenience! While we're sure you'll find plenty of places and situations that take advantage of this ultra-small mic, scenarios such as recording Acoustic instruments, ambient room miking, symphonic area miking and overheads for just about everything from choirs and group vocals to drums and more come to mind. The M1290 is an excellent choice for both recording and live applicatons - especially when you're concerned with line of sight. Obviously, the M1290 is lightweight, but it also features high SPLs, needs no additional external power and is extremely quiet. This is the Hypercardioid version. Cardioid (M1290), Omni (M1290o) and Supercardioid (M1290s) versions are also available.
