3 Zigma CHI Matched Pair of Small Diaphragm Mics

3 Zigma Audio
Includes a matched pair of 3 Zigma Lipstick (small diaphragm) condenser microphones, each including mic body (choice of transformerless HA-TLII or HA-FX transformer-coupled), shock mount, and choice of any two C-LOL Large (Lollipop) capsule-modules, all in a Premium Wood Case.
The 3 Zigma CHI System is designed to be an extremely flexible platform offering the demanding engineer a range of sounds going from the most classic vintage toned capsules to the most true to the source, "straight wire", modern specs capsules. Made to be reliable and robust, this microphone system must be regarded as a long term investment, and one that can only grow: indeed, as you add more capsules and accessories, your CHI system will expand and offer more options thus enhancing your recording, helping you getting the sounds you're after in the studio and generally speaking, broadening your sound "palette" when recording.
The CHI head amp is a very neutral transformer-less impedance converter, simply fed by standard 48 Volts Phantom power. It has ample headroom, extremely low noise and is totally stable and perfectly shielded.
The main strength of the CHI system lies in its flexibility: the transparent head amp lets you pick the sound and behavior of the capsule to form a combination which offers a sound ranging from transparent and unobtrusive (using the small diaphragm capsules) and flexible (many different polar responses) to obviously colored (any of the large diaphragm capsules).
Let's now go over the capsule options one by one.
SMALL DIAPHRAGM Capsule Modules (Select One):
Cardioid (model SD-C):
A very typical SD capsule, probably the one you'll use most often. Straight cardioids pattern with nice, flat frequency response with only minimal treble peak, giving a very true and neutral sound with just enough reach and directionality for most jobs. The proximity effect is totally predictable.
Hypercardioid (model SD-H):
A more directional version of the Cardioid capsule, with more proximity effect. The treble response is still very realistic and to some people, will actually sound more "real" than the cardioid.
Omni, available with:
Diffuse Field response (model SD-O-D):
to be used when a relatively flat treble is required off axis, for instance when the sound of the room needs to be accurately represented (darker source).
Free Field response (model SD-O-F):
to be used when a relatively flat treble is required on axis, for instance when the source needs to be accurately represented (darker room sound).
