The Sony C800G Tube Microphone is an iconic tube condenser, known and loved for it's full ranged balanced and smooth sound, with lifted clarity and dimensional bigness. The C800G is like reality enhanced with a musical tone that let's vocals and dynamic sound sources (like acoustic stringed instruments) shine with a presence that sits perfectly on top of the mix.

The Sony C800G Tube Microphone is particularly suitable for critical vocal recording in recording studios and movie and video post-production houses, where sound clarity and nuance are essential. The use of a rigorously selected vacuum tube gives this microphone its superb sonic quality, particularly at high frequencies and with exceptionally low noise levels. With a wide dynamic range and ability to resolve subtle sound detail, the sonic quality is expressed as rich, natural, and sensitive with an outstanding response to fast transients. With a high sensitivity of –32 dB/Pa, this microphone can capture subtle nuances at high frequencies with low noise levels and minimum distortion.

The first microphone in the world to incorporate a built-in thermo-electric cooling system employing a semiconductor device, heat pipe, and heat sink, which greatly contribute to the low noise and low distortion characteristics. The design incorporates a two-part body construction that effectively helps prevent acoustic vibration from reaching the microphone capsule, resulting in clarity of reproduction.

What We Think


The Sony C800G Tube Microphone is clearly a well known and loved microphone. The first time I used it, and really heard it with my own ears, I understood what it was all about. The word that best describes the Sony C800G to me, is "Purity". What you feed it, is what you get. The nuances, the detail and clarity is all there. But, there is a warmth and musicality to it - that just makes the recording better. It's like it is lifting up the voice, letting it stand out and be truly heard. The C800G also has a large dimensional sound that brings forth the life of the performance. This mic has some magic to it. And while it sounds amazing of vocals (and you can clearly tell that a lot of love and care went into designing it for that) - the C800G is also amazing on acoustic guitars and pianos.
