The list of the best-sounding microphones ever made is a short one. Among the usual suspects — select, well-maintained vintage tube mics — are a handful of contemporary high-ticket items, including the Sony C-800G. If you've ever worked with this exceptional mic, you know what we mean. It captures the silky breathiness of vocals without a hint of shrillness. It's also a revelation on acoustic guitar. In fact, the C-800G's effectively non-existent noise floor and high sensitivity let you use it on almost anything with astonishing results. The vacuum tube — a hand-selected 6AU6 — has its own onboard cooling system. The large dual diaphragm capsule features electronically selectable cardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns. If you have the budget for an ultra-high-end microphone, the Sony C-800G deserves your serious consideration.Superior technology, unerring accuracy
On first encounter with the C-800G, you'll notice a curious-looking appendage. This is the cooling system that maintains optimal tube operating temperature, a factor Sony has deemed vital to consistent sonic performance with vanishingly low noise and distortion. Whether you're recording a lead vocal or a voice-over, the human voice is the most challenging source. It's this extreme level of design sophistication that enables the C-800G to capture vocals flawlessly. The mic is a workhorse in AudioBuy studios, a staple not only for vocals, but for pretty much any acoustic instrument, courtesy of its unerring accuracy. The Sony C-800G comes with a proprietary outboard power supply and multi-pin cable, power cord, cradle suspension, and wind screen.Sony C-800G Large-diaphragm Tube Condenser Mic Features
