Core Sound Microphones for Musical Instruments

The Core Sound Cardioid MI microphones have a frequency response of from 40 Hz to 18 kiloHertz. They are relatively flat over that range with the exception of a slight (2 dB) peak between 9 kHz and 12 kiloHertz and a bass response fall off of roughly 6 dB per octave starting at 100 Hertz.

The Core Sound Cardioid MI microphones are specifically designed to record extremely loud sounds without distortion.

We match the microphone pair to within one dB of each other. Sensitivity of the cartridges is approximately -70 dB (0 dB = 1 Volt per microbar), making them very suitable for recording extremely loud sound sources without danger of overloading your mic pre-amp. The microphones have a cardioid pickup pattern, rejecting sounds that are 90 degrees off-axis by at least 6 dB and at 180 degrees by at least 20 dB (measured at 1 kHz).

The mics have a dynamic range of over 90 dB and are designed to operate into a nominal impedance of at least 4.7 KiloOhms. (If you need other impedances, please contact us.) Their self-noise level is approximately 35 dBA. This is far below the ambient noise level everywhere except in very quiet recording studios.
