* Supercardioid polar pattern rejects the pit orchestra and offers an impressive gain before feedback * Phase coherent cardioid® design prevents coloration from surface sound reflections * Finely crafted, rugged housing withstand the rigors of the stage * Low profile to be inconspicuously placed on the stage-floor * Industry standard stage-floor microphone The PCC®-160 is a surface-mounted supercardioid microphoneand an industry-standard for lecterns, conference tables, and news desks – wherever improved gain-before-feedback and articulation are important. Unlike the PZM®, the Phase Coherent Cardioid® uses a subminiature supercardioid mic capsule. Its directional polar pattern improves gain-before-feedback, reduces unwanted room noise and rejects sounds from the rear. The mic capsule ensures phase coherency up to the highest frequencies, resulting in a wide, smooth frequency response. Capable of withstanding up to 120 dB SPL with-out distorting, the PCC®-160 will never overload in practical use. A “bass tilt” switch allows the user to tailor the low-end response for particular applications. Thanks to its low profile and black finish, the microphone becomes almost invisible in use.
