Core Sound is pleased to offer our new Stealthy Cardioid microphones.
The Stealthy Cardioids are a pair of matched miniature condensor
microphones especially suited for recording situations where you are
distant from the sound source, recording in a venue with an inherent
bass boom, and/or want to exclude crowd noise. They are specifically
designed for recording very loud concerts from the audience.
Unlike our very popular Core Sound Binaural microphones, the Stealthy
Cardioids are designed to *not* have a flat frequency response. Their
slightly peaked high frequency response is ideal for recording from
afar, and their gentle bass frequency roll-off is perfect for audience
recordings from sound reinforcement systems in large halls. Their
cardioid (heart-shaped) pickup pattern works wonders at eliminating much
of the crowd noise that an omnidirectional microphone can't help but
record. (These same features make the Stealthy Cardioids less suitable
for binaural recording or for stereo recordings when a flat frequency
response is necessary -- use our Binaurals in these situations.)
The Stealthy Cardioids are provided as a matched pair and provide a
level of sonic performance and stealthiness unmatched in their price
range. Their transient response is clean and fast, typical of condensor
microphones. They provide a very pleasing frequency balance and the
ability to record tremendously loud sounds with very low levels of
distortion. When combined with portable DAT and Mini-Disk recorders
(e.g., Sony TCD-D8, PCM-M1 and MZ-R900) they make a very small, rugged,
easy-to-use and good sounding recording setup.
Core Sound microphones are used by professional and for-pleasure tapers
all over the world, including the United States, Canada, Brazil,
Australia, China, Japan, Singapore, Korea, Hong Kong, New Zealand,
France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, England, Scotland, Italy, Norway,
Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Poland and others.
The Core Sound Stealthy Cardioids are engineered with the same extensive
modifications that give the Core Sound Binaurals their ability to record
extremely loud sounds without distorting
