Detachable-Capsule Pencil Condenser Microphone

The Samson CL2 is a short, small-diaphragm condenser with interchangeable Omni and Cardioid capsules. It is sold as a stereo pair.

Tape Op - 2007
I even used the CL2s to mic up a play at my son’s school, and I can say with confidence that the second and third-graders never sounded better. The parents all started using descriptives like “punchy” and “warm”.
Great little mics; a steal at $299 for the set.

The mic was released in 2006.
