Peavey has announced the Studio Pro CM1, a handheld condenser microphone with a cardioid polar response intended as a main or support microphone in studio and live applications.
Studio Pro series mics are suited for recording engineers looking for affordable, high quality recording mics. The CM1 contains a medium-format condenser element designed to handle SPL levels up to 136 dB while maintaining a clean, natural sound. It has a sensitivity of -43 dBv per pascal and a low noise floor, equivalent to only 24 dB SPL.
The built-in shock mount reduces handling noise considerably, making the CM1 ideal for close-range vocal or instrument pickup. The frequency response is tailored to give a crisp, intelligible sound from 50 Hz to 16 kHz. The CM1 is equipped with a dual-layer pop filter to reduce pops and wind noise.
The Studio Pro CM1 will be available Q3 2004 from authorized Peavey retailers.
