Order Nevaton MC416 (discontinued)

The MC416 is a multi-pattern condenser microphone with a incredible warm, silky and transparent sound. It combines flexibility and an excellent transient response with a wide dynamic range. A top-class microphone, handmade in Russia.The Nevaton MC 416 is a condenser type microphone with four switchable directional patterns, outstanding performance and an at- tractive shape.

The microphone consists of an electroacoustical transformer and a preamplifier.

The first unit is an elastically suspended symmetrical pressure- gradien-type double diaphragm reciever.The two- 33mm diaphragms symmetric pressure gradient sensors are made of ultra-thin and gold-sputtered Poly-Ethylene- Tereftalate-film. All components of the transducer have passed a special artificial ageing process to guarantee the stability of their parameters.The transducer is mounted inside the microphone body on a damper, essentially lowering eventual vibrational noise level.

The second unit is a pre-amplifier, which is built to the class-A transformerless standard. All used input transistors pass a special selection process to guarantee minimal self- noise. The amplifier can transmit high soundpressure-levels without any distortion and has a very low self-noise.

The microphone operates on 48V phantom power. A gold-plated XLR-connector is used as an output-connector.

The microphone`s body is made of brass with a dark-grey non-reflective paint finish on an epoxy base. This makes it inherently immune to mechanical and atmospheric influences. A three-layer metallic grill effectively protects the transducers from mechanical impacts and influences.
