The CharterOak Acoustic Devices S600 is a front address vacuum tube condenser microphone. Delivered in sequentially numbered pairs with a lockable fight case, dual power supply, and two shock mounts and is extremely well suited for stereo recording. The CharterOak S600 uses a custom made side terminated 1.00" gold sputtered Mylar capsule and custom made output transformer. Its rich and particularly non-sibilant eq make it a perfect choice when used as a stereo overhead pair on the drum kit. The result is clean and rich cymbals with lots of sustain while picking up all of the transient peaks of the snare and tom toms.
The extended bass frequency response of the S600 makes a single S600 a perfect choice for recording bass guitar and its particularly smooth treble response makes it a perfect choice for recording bright electric guitars.
The microphones are delivered with a lifetime warranty on all parts and labor and easy access to factory technical support.
