CM-200A Cardioid Condenser Microphone description:

The Crown CM-200A is a cardioid condenser microphone for professional vocal and instrumental use. It offers studio quality sound, yet is rugged enough to withstand hard professional use in the field. Its outstanding performance is complemented with handsome styling and a comfortable balance.

The sound of the CM-200A is smooth and non-harsh – yet very articulate – with a wider frequency range than standard vocal microphones. When used up-close, its proximity effect boosts the low-frequency response for a warm, robust sound. An upper-midrange “presence peak” adds intelligibility. The cardioid polar pattern increases gain-before feedback, rejects unwanted background noise, and discriminates against sounds approaching the rear of the microphone.

A built-in multi-stage pop filter effectively suppresses explosive breath sounds. Handling noise is extremely low. The unit can withstand repeated drops and abuse, as well as extremely loud sound pressure levels without distortion. The output of the microphone is balanced, low impedance, which allows long cable runs without hum pickup or high-frequency loss. The unit can be phantom powered from a console or other remote power supply. See Related Products.

Included with the CM-200A is a convenient carrying pouch, an adjustable microphone stand adapter for mounting the unit to any microphone stand, and a foam windscreen to further reduce breath popping and wind noise.
