Take a look at our RV8 condenser microphone. Featuring the same capsule used in our RV10 microphone, the RV8 is one of the best value cardioid mics available today. Featuring bass roll-off and a -10db pad, the RV8 delivers results comparable to products costing considerably more. You’ll be amazed that a condenser microphone at this price can make such a beautiful sound. It really is good enough to make it your “main” studio condenser microphone.
Why choose a large diaphragm condenser microphone?
The answer is simply this – the sound it produces. You can get great results from a good dynamic microphone but nothing compares to the detailed sound of a good large diaphragm condenser microphone. That’s where the RV8 comes in. It sounds absolutely fantastic on a wide range of applications:
- Male and female vocals
- Acoustic instruments
- Drum overheads and percussion
There really is no limit to what this microphone can be used for. Also, there are no hard and fast rules. We want you to get creative and try it all manner of applications! You’ll find it’s really easy to get the RV8 to sit in your mix.
