Josephson Engineering C42

All-purpose cardioid condenser


The Josephson Engineering C42
is an all-purpose cardioid condenser
microphone suitable for mu
ltiple recording applications including spot miking
acoustic and amplified inst
ruments, drums and drum overheads, ensemble and
choir pickups, concert recording, sound effects and vocals. Standard C42
microphones are satin mach
ined stainless steel for years of rugged use.
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.
