The CharterOak SA538 and SA538B are compared in this demonstration of these two Charter Oak 538 Large diaphragm tube condenser microphones on Alto Saxophone and Baritone Sax. As a tube microphone, they possess some of that rich vintage-style warmth, but at the same time as a modern tube microphone, they also have a great deal of detail, open-sound, and air, which make them great not only for vocals, but also a fabulous instrument microphone. You get warmth, but also resonance, harmonics, and detail in a very musical and polished sound. See if you prefer the sound of the 538 or 538B, and be sure and check out our other video comparing these fabulous two microphones on vocals.

The Charter Oak SA538 A and B versions are in a microphone shootout on this vocal recording and overdub, on a simple unprocessed track where we first recorded an Acoustic Guitar using the Charter Oak E700's in a spaced stereo pair configuration. The Charter Oak Microphones are Modern Multipattern Tube Microphones with amazing clarity, detail, and three-dimensionality. CharterOak owner Mike Deming, recording engineer and producer, discusses his opinions of the two microphones with this particular vocalist on this particular track. Singer Songwriter Matt Douglas performance a sensational tune, and the Charter Oak Microphones do a spectacular job of capturing the sound. The entire line of Charter Oak Acoustic Products is available from Sound Pure, and we use these great sounding mics in our studio frequently. You can reach us toll free at 888-528-9703 with any question you have about these amazing microphones.

The CharterOak SA538 is an affordable, high quality alternative to other condenser microphones in its class. Its sonic integrity, extreme durability, overall design simplicity, and serviceability make it an attractive option to any of the condenser microphones of its type currently available. The CharterOak SA538 is a dual diaphragm vacuum tube condenser microphone. Nine (9) pick up patterns are switchable. It is delivered in a locking flight case, power supply, shock mount, and appropriate cables. The high standard of quality and affordability of the CharterOak SA538 have been achieved through an extended period of research and development, including beta testing by a wide variety of end users.
The parts of the CharterOak SA538 are machined from solid brass and high quality electronic components are used throughout.
The process of creating a CharterOak SA538 Condenser Microphone is started by hand under the strict supervision of CharterOak personnel. Under that supervision the parts are quality checked and assembled at our facility in Connecticut.
The microphones are finished and the parts are quality checked a second time by experienced engineers. The process involves a seven (7) day burn in of the vacuum tube and no less than 1/2 hour spent with each microphone in a studio environment. Careful listening tests employ high quality microphone preamplifiers and high resolution monitoring systems. Quality checks on every component of each kit complete the process.
It is only after this exhaustive finishing and quality control process is complete, that an SA538 will be cleared for sale to the customer.
From the research and development to the delivery of every SA538, it is this attention to detail that makes the SA538 truly unique in its class.
The microphone is delivered with a lifetime warrantee on all parts and labor and easy access to factory technical support. Don't forget to ask for the mics in FREE matched pairs!
