Beyerdynamic MC840 Microphone

The Beyerdynamic MC840 Microphone is a top class large-diaphragm condenser microphone with 5 switchable polar patterns for universal studio application. It has been designed without compromise to capture every sound detail with absolute clarity and purity.

The Beyerdynamic MC840 Microphone is a very compact large diaphragm studio microphone with a gold vaporised double diaphragm and 5 selectable polar patterns (omnidirectional, wide cardioid, cardioid, hypercardioid, figure 8). On the basis of the Beyerdynamic MC740 Microphone capsule this new microphone has been equipped with an improved low-noise pre-amplifier and an impedance transformer without transducer. Due to a two-stage roll-off filter (80 and 160 Hz) compensating the close miking effect and a two-stage pre-attenuation (-10 and -20 dB) the Beyerdynamic MC840 is a superior microphone for any recording application. It has been designed without compromise to capture every sound detail with absolute clarity and purity. Applications for the Beyerdynamic MC840 include recording orchestras resulting in a superb transparent sound.
