CharterOak s700 Recording Electric Guitars and Bass

The Charter Oak s700 Microphone is a well-known broadcast microphone, which is why it's suprising and impressive to hear it perform very wonderfully as a microphone that records electric guitar cabinets and bass. The big and rich bottom end of this microphone translates to warm guitar tones, but at the same time it has a smooth and crisp top end that doesn't sacrifice a great deal of detail. At its low price, this is a great microphone to have in the studio for a wide variety of applications. For Bass SVT rigs, it's quickly becoming one of our favorite microphone choices, but is also does a nice job of reproducing well-balanced guitar tones, in particular, it's impressive at capture a lot of great low-end resonance, and top-end edge, but doesn't give you the typical muddy midrange and washed-out sounds you'd expect from a voice-over microphone. Definitely a nice microphone to have in the mic locker.

Manufacturer's Description from CharterOak

CharterOak S700 Specifications The CharterOak Acoustic Devices S700 is a front address , cardioid, solid-state condenser microphone. The microphone is delivered in a fight case, with its shock mount and is extremely well suited for broadcast applications.

The S700, like all CharterOak products, features extremely rigid construction and a clean and simple electronic design.

The CharterOak S 700 uses the side terminated 1.00" gold sputtered Mylar S-3 type capsule, pure class-A head amplifier and a custom made output transformer.

The result is clean and rich sound on the voice without harshness or sibilance. The microphone is an excellent alternative to standard dynamic broadcast microphones, as it has a more detailed sound and higher output level.

The microphones are delivered with a lifetime warranty on all parts and labor and easy access to factory technical support.
