Product Description
Additional Information
  • Product Description

    The MKH 20-P48 is usually used as a main microphone for orchestras and solo instruments, and picks up the natural acoustics of the room, though it does have a much wider range of applications as omnidirectional microphones do not suffer from ‘proximity effect’.



    • Exceptionally flat frequency response, switchable for near and diffuse field applications
    • High-frequency response can be accentuated by means of a pressure build-up ring
    • Slightly increasing directivity at high frequencies to adjust tonal balance
    • Exceptionally low inherent self-noise
    • Transformerless and fully floating balanced output
    • Switchable pre-attenuation
    • Black, anodised light metal body
    • Includes one shock mount, windshield and pressure build-up ring

    • Frequency response (microphone): 12 - 20000 Hz
