Scope Labs Periscope Omnidirectional Microphone with Built-in Compressor

First-ever condenser microphone with built-in compressor great as a room microphone for that signature squashy pumping and breathing drum sound, or as a close mic for more character and sweet distortion

MFR# Periscope

Product Description

The Scope Labs Periscope is the first-ever condenser microphone with built-in compressor. It is not a linear or a clean microphone as it was not the aim to have a flat frequency response or to have specifications that just look good on paper. It is a really vibey, rich and fun microphone to use, that sounds awesomely good as well as being easy to set up in any recording situation.

You can use it as a room microphone for that signature squashy pumping and breathing drum sound, or place it close to a sound source to get more character or to increase the level of sweet distortion, you can hang it at the top of a staircase to grab all the echo and ambience, or put it in the most unusual place for the weirdest sounds that can help you during sound design.

Its robust body is machined from solid aluminum which has taken 2 years to design and has been tested in the most extreme conditions to ensure complete performance. The copper sleeve not only serves its unique look but also ensures 100% shielding and grounding from interferences. The color and shades of it will vary and change through the years as the copper adapts to your studio, making it very unique and personalized.

The circuit has been designed with reliability and tens of thousands of continuous hours of service in mind, it has also been stress tested to guarantee its longevity.

Periscope has been described by many as adding the glue that was previously missing during recording and it will help you find your unique and distinctive sound regardless of your studio equipment.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
