The CM12C is a miniature hanging condenser microphone which can placed over an orchestra, choir or sound stage, and with its minimal profile, is mostly undetectable from even a slight distance. The CM12C features a permanently charged condenser element with a cardioid pickup pattern. The microphone exhibits excellent rear rejection providing maximum gain before feedback. The CM12C includes a steel hanger that allows the microphone to be pointed, and fixed, towards the position of the sound source. The microphone is supplied with a 30 foot cable terminating in a mini female XLR which connects to the included, PM5 power module with standard male XLR connector. The CM12C operates on standard 9 through 52 Volt phantom power supply. A multi-stage pop filter is also included. The microphone element is protected by a rugged metal housing and the entire microphone has a low reflectance, matte black finish.
