The Earthworks C30/HC-W Hypercardioid Hanging Microphone (Demo) is a gooseneck condenser mic with 30’ (9m) cable designed for installation in churches and other venues. It provides pristine audio quality without spotlighting and more gain before feedback while picking up almost no sound from the rear of the mic.
The Earthworks C30/HC-W Hypercardioid Hanging Microphone has a unique design and presents the perfect solution to installation challenge – the traditional solution is to use an angle guide on the microphone’s lead to aim towards the performance venue. The problem with this approach is that either a very small microphone had to be used to keep aimable weight within practical limits or locate the microphone’s electronics at some considerable distance from the element inviting losses and noise.
The Solution - Earthworks C30/HC-W ChoirMic™
The Earthworks C30/HC-W ChoirMic™ is the ultimate problem solver for miking choirs and other venues with high ceilings.
With its wide pickup pattern at all frequencies, you can easily cover large groups with just a few microphones. The Earthworks C30/HC-W will reproduce the sound of the choir with incredible articulation and no spotlighting, so no one voice outshines the rest. Instead, the choir will sound like a unified voice. With over 30dB of rear rejection, the Earthworks C30/HC-W has more gain before feedback while picking up almost no sound from the rear of the microphone.
The Earthworks C30/HC-W features a small microphone head attached to a flexible mini gooseneck, which allows quick and precise positioning of the microphone. The 30’ (9m) attached Canare® Star Quad cable resists twisting due to temperature and humidity changes, so you can rest assured that the microphone will stay put once it has been properly aimed. Measuring just .86 inches (22mm) in diameter at its largest point, the Earthworks C30/HC-W practically disappears from view when installed, providing a low profile miking solution.
