Cardioid Condenser Microphone
The Cr30 is a transformerless FET condenser mic with a fixed Cardioid polar pattern and a large-diaphragm capsule. It is MXL’s “Black Widow” microphone, rebranded as part of the black chrome product line.
The circuit uses a mix of through-hole and surface mount components, including 3 integrated circuits.
A 3-position switch on the rear of the microphone enables a pad: 0dB (disabled), -10dB, -20dB.
The capsule is MXL’s 32mm K67 variant, presumably with a clear rear diaphragm.
It ships with a polishing cloth, an elastic shockmount, and a flightcase.
