Cardioid Condenser Microphone

A sensitive, flat response microphone ideal for acoustic instruments.

  • Cardioid polar pattern picks up the most sound from in front of the microphone and some sound from the sides. Less susceptible to feedback in high volume settings.
  • Condenser cartridge has a lightweight, sensitive diaphragm. Precisely and smoothly captures sound nuances. Powered by AA battery or phantom power supply.
  • Internal shock mount for reduced handling noise.
  • Durable metal construction.
  • On/off switch for onstage control.
  • Includes 15ft. (4.57m) cable, break-resistant mic clip and storage bag.

The PG52 is included in the Performance GearPGDMK6Drum mic kit.
