Josephson C42 Microphone

The Josephson C42 is a cardioid condenser microphone that has been designed to be used for a variety recording applications like live production or studio recordings. These condenser microphones are satin machined stainless steel prefect for years of rugged use making these suitable for heavy duty scenarios such as drum overheads or consistent mobile use on the road giving you years of reliability.

C42 electronics feature a selected discrete FET driving a fully balanced symmetrical transformerless discrete class-A output stage. The output impedance is low enough that very long cable runs may be used without signal degradation. Although the microphone is specified for full P48 phantom power, it will function with phantom power as low as 24 volts, with some limitation in maximum SPL.
