The Nady SCM 960 Condenser Microphone. This superior microphone is perfect for recording studio vocals, acoustic instruments, orchestras and choral groups, ambient instrument audio, and many live sound applications. Powerful and versatile, the SCM 960 microphone meets the stringent requirements of even the most demanding digital recording and live broadcasting applications.
The SCM 960 offers transformerless output and true condenser design (element constantly biased by the pre-amp) for exceptionally low self noise and increased dynamic range, enhanced low and high end response with improved linearity across the frequency range and maximum SPL capacity. It features a large diaphragm capsule (1 inch), three-way pad switch with 0dB, 10dB and 20dB of attenuation, and two selectable polar patterns: omni and cardioid.
The SCM 960 uses a carefully selected Field Effect Transistor (FET), specially chosen for its low distortion and superior signal-to-noise ratio. (Note: For optimum performance, it is best to let the microphone warm up for 5 to 10 minutes) The SCM 960 is manufactured with the finest materials and features a machined housing with advanced internal shock mount construction for the highest structural integrity and rugged reliability. It requires 48V phantom power to operate, typically supplied by the microphone pre-amplifier or mixing console. The optional Nady SMPS-1 phantom power supply can also be used.
