Sennheiser Announces MK 8 – New Large Diaphragm Condenser Studio Microphone
Sennheiser has announced the MK 8, a new large diaphragm condenser studio microphone. The MK 8 offers five independent polar patterns to allow for a multitude of recording applications and sound design options. No matter which mixing desk or recording device is used, the MK 8 matches the input sensitivity with a 3-step attenuator. Two adjustable filters compensate for the proximity effect as well as low frequency rumble or structure born noise.
The MK 8 has dual one-inch diaphragms precisely spattered with 24-carat gold. The shock-mounted capsule is accommodated within a sturdy metal housing.
