Comments from customers who bought this item:
An end address condenser microphone, the M3 features a heavy-duty metal body, category leading low self-noise, three stage PAD (O, -10db, -20db), a battery status LED and a High Pass Filter.
Featuring a heavy duty metal body and internally shock mounted 1/2" condenser capsule mounted for end-address, the M3 can be used in the studio, on stage or on location. The M3 is great as a vocal microphone, guitar microphone, drum microphone or presenter microphone.
A -10dB and -20dB level attenuation (or PAD), selectable from inside the battery compartment, allows recording of loud sound sources such as a guitar amplifier or drum. A high-pass filter, selectable on the microphone power switch introduces a filter at 80Hz to reduce low frequency sounds and handling noise.
The M3 also comes complete with windshield, stand mount and case and can be powered via a 9V battery or 24-48V Phantom.
