High SPL handling makes this mic a workhorse

The Samson MTR231 can handle high sound levels without a hint of distortion. With the attenuation pad engaged it's ready for up to 142dB SPL - plenty of tolerance for loud drums, raging guitar amplifiers, and aggressive vocalists.

Low self noise is perfect for delicate recordings

While the MTR231 handles loud sources with ease, its low self noise also makes it great for recording delicate sources. Soft vocals and delicate acoustic instruments are captured in all their detail, without a background of hiss or hum.

Smart accessory package included

On top of a great microphone, the Samson MTR231 comes with a shockmount for your mic stand and also a pop filter. While the mic capsule inside the MTR231 is internally shock-mounted, the stand-mounted shockmount is an extra barrier against outside vibrations being picked up by the mic. And the pop filter is a must-have for loud or sibilant vocalists, ensuring you don't lose a great take to pops or clicks. Best of all, you get an aluminum carry case to store and transport the MTR231.
