Accurate sound and versatility

Nine selectable pickup patterns accommodate a wide variety of applications, including close-up and distance miking. Three switchable bass cut filters and three pre-attenuation levels let you adjust for different sound sources and recording situations. For live concert use, all controls can be disabled easily so settings can't be changed accidentally.
