Super Cardioid Dynamic Micophone with ON/OFF Switch
The wide and flat frequency response of the Astatic CTM 55 provides unsurpassed natural transparent sound quality. The supercardioid pickup pattern minimizes annoying feedback (when used close to reinforcement speakers and monitors) and reduces the pickup of unwanted off-axis sounds. An effective internal multistage pop filter minimizes wind and breath noise. The Astatic CTM 55 has a Flex-FormTM hardened steel grille screen that dramatically resists deformation while greatly reducing any risk of adverse performance caused by a bent or dented ball screen. This unique ability to retain its original shape assures that the CTM 55 will maintain it’s attractive appearance. The CTM 55’s most innovative design feature is the Astatic exclusive (I.N.RTM) Impact Noise Rejection system. A rubber shock mount isolates the transducer from the body, thus dramatically reducing cable, stand and handling noise. The need for any external shock-mounting device is virtually eliminated. The low-frequency response of the Astatic CTM 55 may be enhanced by increasing or decreasing the distance from the sound source. This phenomenon is technically known as “proximity effect”. Normal or “flat” response is generated at a distance of 24 inches or more. However, as the distance to the sound source decreases, the bass sensitivity increases, providing a solid robust character. The CTM 55 is supplied complete with a zippered vinyl protective pouch and a snap-in microphone swivel mount. Extended frequency response for professional performance. Supercardioid-directional for increased rejection of feedback or unwanted ambient sounds. High output design with neodymium magnet element, Impact Noise Reduction System (INR trademark), Multi stage hardened steel grill and pop filter, Non-reflective, durable soft touch finish. Includes stand adapter and zipper pouch.
