The ART C3 multi-pattern large diaphragm condenser microphone is a versatile microphone that will fit well in any studio toolkit. Three selectable polar patterns, two position low frequency roll-off and two position pad switches on the body of the microphone ensure the C3 can easily be applied to virtually any recording or live application.

The ART C3 is the microphone of choice for recording critical tracks including solo vocals, saxophones, flutes, brass or woodwinds, acoustic guitars or acoustic bass. It excels anywhere superior sound quality is required, yet subtlety and clarity is paramount.

Due to its rugged construction and ability to handle high SPL, the C3 is an outstanding choice for live sound reinforcement or live recording applications. It can handle the levels you'd see on an overhead mic for drum kits or in front of guitar or bass cabinets.

Controls on the microphone include a -6dB/-12dB pad switch, allowing distortion-free reproduction of extremely loud at-source signals, and a two position -12dB/octave low frequency roll off at 100 Hz and 200 Hz that reduce unnecessary low end 'boominess' and low frequency interference.

The included heavy-duty shock-mount suspension virtually eliminates vibration and handling noise, while at the same time safely securing the microphone in any position needed during the recording process.
