Cardioid Pencil Condenser Microphone

The FC 4 is an inexpensive pencil condenser with detachable capsules. The mic is available either with a single Cardioid capsule (FC4), or with Cardioid, Hyper, and Omni capsules (FC4 MC).

The capsules have a 20mm diaphragm.

The mic uses a FET impedance-conversion circuit, and a transformerless output. The metalwork is brass.

Onboard switches provide access to a -10dB pad and a high-pass filter.
