SC-08 Super Cardioid Condenser Pencil Microphone

RYCOTE Article no: RYC079004



The Rycote SC-08 is a supercardioid pencil condenser microphone designed for a range of applications in studio and field recording.

The SC-08 microphones provide directionality with a virtually flat frequency response from 70Hz-20KHz, moderately dropping off below 60Hz. The mics are built on Rycote’s low self-noise preamp design and capsules which offer a consistent sonic signature that mixes well when cut together with other Rycote microphones in the range. The SC-08 mics can be used individually or in matched stereo pairs.
