The Audix SCX1-HC Pencil Condenser Microphone (Hyper-Cardioid) is a professional studio Condenser microphone, applicable to a wide range of recording broadcast and live sound situations. This is a highly sensitive mic with a low profile and known for its consistent and pin-point accuracy. Available in three polar patterns, this is the Hyper-Cardioid version.
With its smooth uniform frequency response from 40 Hz - 20 kHz, the SCX1 is very consistent when responding to on and off-axis signals, and exhibits excellent phase coherence and minimal proximity effect. A high output and sensitivity make the SCX1 an excellent choice for miking overhead, drums, instruments, room ambience, orchestral sections, stringed instruments, piano, vibes and sound effects. The SCX1HC is a number one choice for miking hi-hat both live and in the studio.

The SCX1 will handle sound pressure levels of 130 dB and will provide up to 20 dB of ambient noise rejection. In addition to acoustic instruments, the SCX1 is an excellent choice for group vocals, speech or Foley work. The SCX1HC has become a popular choice for interior dialogue boom pole miking.
