Supercardioid Dynamic Microphone

The Samson Q8 is an inexpensive handheld supercardioid dynamic vocal mic.

The Q8 uses a high-output neodymium magnet for the transducer. Internal shockmounting minimizes handling noise.

Its frequency response begins to fall below 100Hz, flat from 200–2000Hz, and rising 6dB between 6–8kHz.

The mic is cased in die-cast zinc alloy.

It ships with a stand clip and plastic carry case.
