With its sharp black-and-gold appearance, this is a classy-looking microphone indeed, but its looks aren’t the only thing great about it. The C414 XLII microphone offers features that include great sound quality for solo instruments and lead vocals, three attenuation levels for excellent closeup recordings, and even an overload warning with an audio peak hold LED to help you detect the shortest audio peaks. It even comes with three different switchable bass-cut filters for reducing stage vibration, wind noise, and the proximity effect. For houses of worship that want professional-sounding recordings for sermons and live performances, this is one of the best microphones that you can choose.
While the price is around $1100, this is a super high-quality mic that provides a lot of oomph for the money you’ll spend on it. In other words, the mic is well worth that amount of money. It is a wired multi-pattern microphone that even provides you with nine polar patterns that you can select in order to accommodate every setting for lots of applications. Its weight of 0.1 pounds means that it won’t be cumbersome or heavy if you travel with it on the road, and the three attenuation levels allow for both close-up recordings and high-output sources of up to 158dB SPL. Even small churches and synagogues can usually afford this microphone, especially once they see how many benefits it offers.
Sleek-looking and made with top-notch sound, this is one mic that you won’t regret purchasing because it can accommodate any event your house of worship participates in. You can even buy a set of two of these microphones if you wish and get a great discount on the price. It has a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, an audio frequency bandwidth of 20 to 20,000 Hz, and a sensitivity of 23 mV/Pa. There is also a lock mode, disabling all of the controls on the mic so that any settings you made won’t be unintentionally changed. This can give you great peace of mind during any type of performance and is one of the many reasons why this mic is so highly rated by its customers.
A good mic can make all the difference in the world whether you’re recording music, a speaker, or even a choir, but they are certainly not all alike. This mic comes with everything you need to set it up and begin using it immediately, including a windscreen, stereo mounting bar, a carrying case, and a few other items that will make you glad that you chose this particular brand of a microphone.
