Sennheiser has premiered its MK 4, a large-diaphragm, true condenser microphone. This cardioid microphone, which is manufactured in Germany, is the company's first large-diaphragm, side-address microphone.
The MK 4, with its nickel-colored finish, was developed for professional users in project studios, but is said to be equally well suited for other recording environments and for use on stage. The open front of the suspension mount enables the MK 4 to be positioned close to the sound source. The microphone has a maximum sound pressure level spec of 140 dB, and self-noise rated at 10 dB(A). It comes complete with a microphone clip and a protective pouch. Optional accessories include an elastic suspension, a foam windshield and a popshield.
