MXL 4000

The MXL 4000 Multi-Pattern is a condenser microphone designed around a Class-A discrete FET mic amp specially chosen to match its large diaphragm capsule. The capsule itself has been sized and tuned to provide a silky and airy top end with a full, warm midrange reminiscent of vintage microphones. Hand selected internal components create a sound that enhances both vocal and instrument performances.

Figure-8 mics pick up sound equally well from front and rear. So, if you're looking for a rich vocal sound with the added ambience of room tone to add depth and spaciousness, use the figure-8 pattern and have your vocalist sing into one side while the other picks up the reflections of the room. You can also use the figure-8 pattern for isolation from other instruments. For example, if you're miking drums and want to give the hi-hat its own track, position the MXL 4000 so that the side of the figure-8, where rejection is greatest, is pointing towards the snare while the front or rear of the mix faces the hat.

Omni has very little off-axis coloration, which means that sounds entering the sides of the mic sound just as good as sounds entering the front. If you have a great-sounding room, try omni before anything else. Omni gives your recordings the impression of being in the room with the sound.

This is the most used pattern. It's basically point and shoot, but keep in mind that you can use its rear-rejection to your advantage, or by turning the mic slightly away from the source, you can use it's off-axis response to tame sharp transients. Aside from straight-ahead recording, most people us the cardioid pattern is the "mid" mic in Mid-Side stereo recording.

CAD VocalShield VS1

The CAD VocalShield VS1 was designed to help you achieve pure vocal recordings in any room, professional or at home. VocalShield VS1 is constructed from a high-quality, 16-gauge micro cell acoustic foam, resulting in a dry recording environment, reducing reflections, echoes and attenuating unwanted environmental acoustic interference. Its innovative folding design allows for maximum portability and is supplied with mounting hardware that adapts to most microphones for easy, flexible placement. The VocalShield VS1 is an essential tool for enhanced performance and a vital accessory for the professional musician.

Sterling Pop Filter

The Sterling Audio STPF1 Professional Pop Filter eliminates plosives and protects your microphone from saliva. Compatible with most mic mounts. Constructed from long-lasting stretched mesh steel, the metal mesh perforations direct plosive energy down and away from the microphone capsule. It's easy to clean and includes a 10" gooseneck and mounting bracket.

The package is rounded out with an MGTBS Tripod Microphone Boom Stand that is adjustable in height from 35" to 61-7/8”, and a 20’ Gear One XLR microphone cable.
