Earthworks C30/C-B Cardioid Condenser Choir Microphone
This Earthworks C30/C-B Condenser Choir Microphone is the cardiod version in black.
Choir microphones have always presented a unique design and installation challenge. The traditional solution is to use an angle guide on the microphone’s lead to aim it towards the performance. The problem with this approach is that either a very minimal microphone had to be used to keep aimable weight within practical limits, or locate the microphone’s electronics at some considerable distance from the element, inviting losses, noise, etc.
Earthwork Audio’s ChoirMics overcome these issues by locating the element on a short flexible extension from the microphone’s body, resulting in excellent response and extremely low noise while retaining the ability to aim the element at the precise point desired.
The standard cardioid pattern provides satisfactory coverage and feedback resistance for most installations, however, the hypercardioid pattern is available for those installations where a tighter pickup pattern is desired for better isolating performers, or in those installations where particularly aggressive stage monitors would otherwise present a problem.
