The 3 Zigma Quad Lipstick 4 X 6 Kit comes with 4 CHI transformer-less head amps, 6 small diaphragm capsule modules (2 cadioid, 2 hypercardioid, and 2 diffuse-field omni), all in a jewel box. The CHI is designed to be an extremely flexible platform offering the demanding engineer a range of sounds going from the most classic vintage toned capsules to the most true to the source, "straight wire", modern specs capsules. Made to be reliable and robust, this microphone system must be regarded as a long term investment, and one that can only grow: indeed, as you add more capsules and accessories, your CHI system will expand and offer more options thus enhancing your recording, helping you getting the sounds you're after in the studio and generally speaking, broadening your sound "palette" when recording. The CHI head amp is a very neutral transformer-less impedance converter, simply fed by standard 48 Volts Phantom power. It has ample headroom, extremely low noise and is totally stable and perfectly shielded. The main strength of the CHI system lies in its flexibility: the transparent head amp lets you pick the sound and behavior of the capsule to form a combination that is transparent and unobtrusive using the small diaphragm capsules. Let's now go over the included capsules one by one.
