The microphone capsule
This high-performance condenser omni mic has an unbeatable dynamic range of 124 dB from the noise floor to 1% THD. It is capable of handling up to 160 dB SPL peak before clipping occurs.
It has, through its total acoustical transparency and ultra-high SPL handling capability, gained a reputation as being the first choice for picking up drums, percussion and brass instruments, whenever a natural and non-distorted result is paramount.
Due to its linear qualities and perfect omnidirectionality, it is also used as reference microphone in both microphone comparisons and acoustic test equipment.
