The 440 from MXL is a versatile large diaphragm condenser microphone, ideal for a wide variety of applications. The gold-sputtered diaphragm provides clean, clear audio while the FET preamp with an electrically-balanced output gives uncompromised tonal quality. The 440's cardioid pickup pattern rejects off-axis noise to reduce feedback and prevent unwanted noise from ruining your recording. Internal Mogami wiring provides a high-grade signal path to prevent audio degradation. The mic uses 48V phantom power and has a standard 3-pin XLR connector. A mic stand adapter is included.
