What customers say about C 1000 S:

“The versatility of the C 1000 S makes this an extremely popular model, and one ideally suited for all kinds of recording and live sound applications.”

“It is perfectly adequate for a number of applications including drum overheads, acoustic instruments, piano etc.”

“It is also indestructible with rugged metal chassis and special mic clip to keep it securely attached…”


Drummer Using C1000

The nearly indestructible condenser has a sturdy metal chassis and specialized mic clip to keep the units securely attached to stands. The C1000 S’s gold capsule and XLR plugs make it humidity-proof for all environments.

Rather than relying on an expensive 9V block battery, the C1000 S now runs on two AA batteries at 120h and offers two gain settings, three frequency settings and two polar patterns: cardioid and hypercardioid.

For mobile broadcast use and interview situations, our new C1000 S offers more versatility than ever before.
