The Citronic Condenser pencil-style microphone is fantastic for spot miking due to its focused cardioid polar pattern. Built to an exceptionally high standard of quality, it is a reliable and resilient mic that can be utilised in both the studio and on-location for music and film-related projects.
Compact yet capable
Don't let the size fool you, within the Citronic Pencil mic is a cardioid capsule, which is perfect for recording a wide range of instruments. The exquisite linear frequency response means that the unique timbre of acoustic instruments such as guitars and violins is retained. The Citronic handles the scale and range produced by an acoustic piano perfectly. You can even use this beauty to perfectly capture a room's ambience for background audio tracks for video editing.
The high SPL handling ability of the mic makes it great for recording drum overheads and guitar amps. The narrow field of the Citronic makes it a useful microphone to use when you're looking to recording instruments in a live setting, as it is less likely to pick up unwanted sound sources. At this price, you could effectively buy several microphones and have total stage coverage.
Every effort has been made to deliver a truly outstanding tool that both amateurs and professional sound recordists/producers/engineers can take advantage of. From the internal components of the capsule to the protective case, steadfast mounting clip and foam windguard, everything has been carefully appointed to deliver excellent quality for all.
