The Samar MG33 Microphone is a side-addressed small diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone that features low noise, a smooth and very balanced response, low distortion and excellent low and high-end extension.

Don’t let the Samar MG33's compact size and modest price tag give you the wrong impression. Its is very high-quality original designs, featuring low noise, and a smooth and very balanced response, with low distortion, and excellent low and high-end extension. The Samar MG33 is an ideal solution for demanding professional engineers, studios, artists, as well as home recording enthusiasts, to make the highest quality recordings, especially in environments where the compact size of the microphone is of the essence. The microphone is built at the company’s Salt Lake City-based shop.

The MG33 is designed by the company’s founder Dr. Mark Fouxman. As with any Samar microphone, extraordinary attention was put into the shape of the body and its acoustical properties. An unusual, innovative, and optimized acoustical lens eliminates standing waves, reflections, and wave interference, and allows for minimal phase distortion anomalies along with excellent off-axis response. The MG33 uses the same capsule as Samar's highly acclaimed MG20. For low distortion, the highest possible sonics, sound quality, and years of dependability, the MG33 use the highest quality electronic parts, such as SMD Vishay-Dale resistors and through-hole Wima capacitors in the signal chain.

The Samar MG33 offers balanced, neutral sound, along with the excellent low-end response, and the non-harsh sonic nature on the high end, makes it suitable for a wide range of applications, such as pop, jazz, and classical piano, string instruments, brass instruments, acoustic guitars, drum overheads, percussions, room microphones, orchestra, and choir among other recording, broadcast, and classical music applications. It is especially suitable for environments where compact size is important. It is perfect for live sound reinforcement, concert recordings, drum and percussion sessions, and any place where a small unobtrusive footprint is needed.

What We Think


The Samar MG33 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone is extremely impressive. Do not let the super small format fool you, this thing has a massive sound. Mark (Samar) will tell you that this mic was designed for drums in mind, and they handle drums amazingly. While the MG33 uses the same capsule as the MG20, the MG33 has more fullness and heft to the low mids and mids. This makes drums sound thick and big. They handle the SPL with ease, and the transients are detailed and defined. The super compact nature along with the side address format makes it easy to get the perfect mic placement while it is completely out of the way (physically and visually). Samar set out to make a great drum mic, and they nailed it.
