Line Audio CM3 is a directional condenser microphone with a flat response. It’s ideal for recording or amplification of instruments such as the Handpan in live situations.
This small microphone gives a natural, detailed and balanced sound image. Perfect for the natural reproduction of acoustic instruments such as members of the bow and string instruments, piano, brass, percussion, choir and voices with a minimum of coloring. The response is smooth and flat, even under an angle! The CM3 is strong enough to handle percussion with full depth and punch. It also deals well with amplified instruments. A real all-round microphone! It’s suitable for professional studio and PA use, with a price tag on a hobbyist level! It is very small (about the same size as a normal XLR plug) making it easy to place without getting in the way. Its size and black color make it almost invisible on stage. Comes with foam windshield and microphone holder (clip). During production, each capsule is measured, selected and cropped to reduce the tolerances. Capsules that do not fall within the tolerances are rejected. This in combination with the internal circuits results in a response with a unique flatness. These are high-quality microphones made for demanding situations.
