Sony C38B Large Diaphragm FET Condenser Microphone (Demo Deal)

All-purpose, large-diaphragm FET condenser microphone with broad dynamic range, low-cut filter and pad switch
MFR# C38B

Product Description

The Sony C-38B is an all-purpose, large diaphragm microphone with a proven track record of reliability in broadcast production, music recording studios, or wherever circumstances demand a combination of powerful performance, versatile operation and simplicity of microphone set up. Ideal for vocal and instrument recording, this microphone is particularly adept at handling loud instruments such as percussion and wind instruments.

The condenser element of the C-38B microphone provides dual switchable, omnidirectional and unidirectional (cardioid) polar patterns, providing control over the pick up angle for flexibility in any recording scenario. A low cut filter switch helps eliminate low frequency noise, and an 8 dB pad switch maximizes gain and reduces distortion noise. With its established performance record, the C-38B microphone continues to be the reliable, affordable choice of recording engineers around the world.

Features:

  • Switchable Polar Patterns : the C-38B microphone features switchable omni-directional and uni-directional polar patterns for maximum flexibility and control over pick up angle
  • Function Select Switch: just below the directivity switch, a function select switch allows quick adjustment of the C-38B microphone through 5 positions: OFF, M (full range response); M1 (slight low frequency attenuation); V1 (low frequency attenuation); V2 (severe low frequency attenuation)
  • Broad Dynamic Range: an improved amplifier gives the C-38B a dynamic range of greater than 116 dB, with flat frequency response and sharp directional characteristics in both uni-directional and omni-directional modes
  • Phantom Power System: in addition to internal battery power, the C-38B microphone is compatible for use with standardized 48V phantom powering
  • Low-Cut Filter: the C-38B's low-cut filter switch helps eliminate low-frequency noise and proximity effect
  • Pad Switch: -8 dB pad switch on the C-38B microphone provides added headroom and minimizes distortion caused by transient peaks
  • FET Output Stage: FET output stage of the C-38B microphone delivers high signal gain and low noise floor for superb sound quality
  • Vibration Resistant Construction: Designed for peak performance, the C-38B microphone's classic, vibration resistant construction provides excellent shielding against external magnetic fields and helps prevent distortion

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.

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.
