CardioidBeijing 797 Audio Co. Ltd. CR1-4

Cardioid Pencil Condenser Microphone

The CR1-4 is a small-diaphragm condenser with a fixed cardioid capsule. The microphone utilizes a transformerless preamp instead of transformer coupling output circuitry, used in the old version of the CR1-4 which dates back to 1979.

The mic uses a low-mass, gold-plated diaphragm.

Switchable low-cut filter and -10 dB preattanuation (pad) give this version of the mic more versatility in the studio.

The low-end roll-off is extreme, below 100 Hz.
