The CL5 is a studio condenser in a handheld package, making it an ideal selection for critical miking of vocals and instruments. Handling high SPLs, the microphones response is so detailed and open that it captures every nuance of a performance, from quiet acoustic passages, subtle breaths by a vocalist and of course full-throated vocals in any style. Sensitivity, extended response and accuracy make the CL5 microphone an elegant selection for performers and a logical choice for engineers.
The CL5 features a 12.7mm gold-sputtered capsule with a 3-micron tensioned diagram working in concert with advanced head amp electronics to faithfully reproduce any sound source. Our careful implementation of advanced design and manufacturing technology results in an outstanding microphone with superb audio and clarity, linear response and exceptional high frequency reproduction.
The CL5 is a pressure gradient, true condenser with Supercardioid pick-up pattern and extended linear frequency response that operates on 48 volt phantom power. It comes with a dual stage windscreen and comes in a durable carry case and is available in both nickel and black.
