Austrian Audio CC8

From Austrian Audio comes the CC8, a small-diaphragm, true condenser microphone offering versatility for handling any signal, from delicate acoustic guitars to splashy and transient drum sets. The CC8's super-directional and sturdy design makes it perfect for setting up in tight spaces, be it studio recordings or live performances. Based on the famed CK1 capsule, the CC8's updated small condenser capsule, the OCC7, showcases a gold-coated, polyethylene naphthalate diaphragm and broadband-cancelling fabric, providing the most pristine cardioid pattern you could ask for.

Handle up to levels of 156 dB SPL with two options for input padding while maintaining linear frequency response with the combined transformerless output. Take unwanted low-end out before the CC8 hits the preamp with two settings for high-passing the input (60Hz and 120Hz). Supporting a super-low internal noise (16 dBA), the CC8's dynamic range is incredibly exceptional, perfect for picking up the slightest details. Small-diaphragm microphones are historically great for a multitude of sources, and the CC8 doesn't stray from that, capturing fast transients with an open sound profile while handling intense volumes without becoming strident. Be it a soft orchestral string quartet or heavy metal blast beats, the Austrian Audio CC8 can handle any task you throw at it with remarkable accuracy.
