Sanken Chromatic CU-44X MK II Dual-Capsule Cardioid Microphone

The CU-44X MK I's revolutionary design is favored by top musicians, engineers and producers.

The CU-44x MK II has a revolutionary design featuring two titanium matched capsules for low and high, with 100 volt internal power for super wide dynamic range and headroom. The transformerless design, with a slight bump above 14kHz gives a very pleasing air in the high end with remarkable transient response. Perfect for vocals, overheads, and acoustic instruments delivering a very pleasing natural sound. Match this with a modern preamp for ultra-low noise and a sonic clarity that is immediately obvious to the ear.

The CU-44X MK II compares very favorably with the older vintage mics in the bottom end but has a much more pleasing high end. This mic has a proven record of great recordings on vocals or instruments.

The unique dual-capsule Sanken CU-44X Mk II sports a versatile cardioid pattern ideal for a wide range of recordings. The ability to withstand high SPLs insures clean, distortion-free recording on explosive percussion and other instruments with harsh dynamics. When used in pairs, the result is impeccably clear stereo imaging.

The CU-44X MkII features a specially designed double titanium capsule with a unique mounting scheme that guarantees phase coherency – a larger one for the bass and a smaller one for the high frequencies. They are immune to the effects of humidity and temperature change, resulting in totally consistent response, regardless of the recording environment.

The CU-44X Mk II’s frequency response is totally flat – on axis, at 90 degrees – essential in maintaining sonic transparency.
