3 Zigma CHI FX Lipstick Microphone

The 3 Zigma CHI FX Lipstick Microphone is a transformer-coupled small diaphragm microphone that comes with the HA-FX Head-Amp and your choice of small diaphragm capsule!

The 3 Zigma 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.

This version of the CHI Lipstick comes with the transformer-coupled version of the CHI head amp. The CHI head amp is a very neutral impedance converter, simply fed by standard 48 Volts Phantom power. The head amp also features a hi-pass filter and pad. 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 which offers a sound ranging from transparent and unobtrusive (using the Lipstick Small Diaphragm capsules) and flexible (many different polar responses) to obviously colored (any of the Lollipop Large Diaphragm capsules).

Let's now go over the capsules one by one.

SD-C: Cardioid
A very typical SD capsule, probably the one you'll use most often. Straight cardioid pattern with nice, flat frequency response with only minimal treble peak, giving a very true and neutral sound with just enough reach and directionality for most jobs. The proximity effect is totally predictable.

  • Type: Quasi-Class A Pressure Gradient FET SD Condenser Microphone
  • Polar pattern: Fixed Cardioid
  • Sensitivity: -36dB (16mV/Pa)
  • Impedance: 100Ω
  • S/N Ratio: 81dB (Ref: 1Pa/A-Weighted)
  • Equivalent Noise Level: 13dB (A-weighted IEC 268-4)
  • Max SPL for 0.5%THD: 140dB
  • Power Requirements: Phantom power 48V±4V

SD-H: Hypercardioid
A more directional version of the Cardioid capsule, with more proximity effect. The treble response is still very realistic and to some people, will actually sound more "real" than the cardioid.

  • Type: Quasi-Class A Pressure Gradient FET SD Condenser Microphone
  • Polar pattern: Fixed Cardioid
  • Sensitivity: -38dB (12.6mV/Pa)
  • Impedance: 100Ω
  • S/N Ratio: 79dB (Ref: 1Pa/A-Weighted)
  • Equivalent Noise Level: 15dB (A-weighted IEC 268-4)
  • Max SPL for 0.5%THD: 142dB
  • Power Requirements: Phantom power 48V±4V

SD-O-D: Diffuse-Field Omni
Ideal when a relatively flat treble is required off axis, for instance when the sound of the room needs to be accurately represented (darker source).

  • Type: Quasi-Class A Pressure Gradient FET SD Condenser Microphone
  • Polar pattern: Fixed Cardioid
  • Sensitivity: -37dB (14.1mV/Pa)
  • Impedance: 100Ω
  • S/N Ratio: 87dB (Ref: 1Pa/A-Weighted)
  • Equivalent Noise Level: 14dB (A-weighted IEC 268-4)
  • Max SPL for 0.5%THD: 137dB
  • Power Requirements: Phantom power 48V±4V

SD-O-F: Free-Field Omni
Ideal when a relatively flat treble is required on axis, for instance when the source needs to be accurately represented (darker room sound).

  • Type: Quasi-Class A Pressure Gradient FET SD Condenser Microphone
  • Polar pattern: Fixed Cardioid
  • Sensitivity: -35dB (17.8mV/Pa)
  • Impedance: 100Ω
  • S/N Ratio: 82dB (Ref: 1Pa/A-Weighted)
  • Equivalent Noise Level: 12dB (A-weighted IEC 268-4)
  • Max SPL for 0.5%THD: 139dB
  • Power Requirements: Phantom power 48V±4V
