Cardioid Condenser Microphone

An inexpensive side-address condenser, this mic has a cardioid pickup pattern and an internally-switched high pass filter.

Like all Alctron products, it is not typically available direct from the manufacturer, but rather through a number of European and North American “rebadgers.” For example, the HSMC001W is visually identical to, and believed to be the source of the Apex Electronics model 435 condenser.

The Ningbo Alctron Electronics Co., Ltd. HSMC001 is also known as: HSMC001WA, HSMC001, MC001.
