Product description

Size:Mic Only  |  Color:Silver

Versatile and Affordable Studio Condenser Mic

Samson's C01 has all the performance features that you demand from a large diaphragm studio condenser microphone. Featuring a large, dual-layer 19mm diaphragm with a cardioid pickup pattern, the C01 produces a smooth flat frequency response. Its two ultra-thin sensor membranes pick up far more detailed sounds than any dynamic coil. The result is a mic that captures accurate, detailed and smooth audio with warm bass tones and extended top end. You'll hear the strings and wood of your guitar, the breath and resonance of a singer, or the brassy shimmer of a ride cymbal with crystal clarity. It's the perfect solution for recording vocals, acoustic instruments or use as an overhead drum mic.

Hyper-Cardioid Pickup Pattern

While omni and bi-directional microphones are very useful for a variety of applications, the majority of miking situations in recording and live sound require unidirectional or cardioid microphones. The uni-directional nature allows for better separation of instruments in the studio and more control over feedback in live sound reinforcement. The C01 condenser's pick-up pattern is hyper-cardioid, which offers even more side-to-side rejection. When positioned correctly the hyper-cardioid pick-up pattern allows you to pick up more of the sound you want and less of the sound you don't want.

Solid Construction and Stability

The C01's design includes a heavy gauge mesh grill, gold-plated XLR connecter and an LED for monitoring its 48V of phantom power. It also comes with a swivel mount that can be attached to any standard mic stand. In addition, an optional SP01 spider shock mount is available for increased mic and sound stability. Samson's C01 is one of the best values available from a professional recording microphone.

What's in the Box?

1.0 out of 5 stars It's FAKE don't buy it.
By Imran A. on June 15, 2019
I was trying to invest in good quality sound, so I ordered this microphone, it says it's a XLR microphone, so I ordered Focusrite Audio Interface with it, it came after months, when I checked it it's an USB Mic!!!
I double checked my order, I found I ordered the right one, but I don't know where's the problem?!
Even it's not working!
This kind mistakes can ruin someone's plans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Upgrade to My Mini-Studio
By 6-StringAcoustic on September 27, 2020
I started out creating my first "bedroom studio" trying to stay wireless, so I initially purchased a microphone with a UHF connection. It worked, and would probably be great for karaoke, but I could hear the hum of RF interference both through my amp and my headphones. Really, that was pretty naive on my part because in trying to solve a mobility problem I ended up creating a noise problem. After all, I'm playing in my home office and backyard deck, not on stage pretending to be Mick Jagger. (BTW, the above also applies to the wireless connection I started with between my guitar and the amp).

I then purchased this mic and, via the direct XLR connection, eliminated the background hum. I'm still experimenting where best to position it to capture both guitar and vocals, but it seems to handle them quite well at ~18", angled in from the top so that it picks sounds up at a more natural "campfire" distance. (That tip came from Graham Cochrane of RecordingRevolution.com). Since my intent was to hear clear sound through my headphones and amp, and because I also want to record music onto my computer, I'm considering this mic upgrade to be a great success.

Just in case this info might also be helpful to folks creating a studio, the entire setup I'm using now includes:
Samson C01 Large-Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone (wired)
Fender Acoustasonic 15 amp (limited I/O, but more than fine for my current needs)
Moukey 48V Phantom Power Supply (needed for the mic because one's not built-in on my amp)
Focusrite Scarlett Solo 3rd Gen Audio Interface (includes USB-C-->USB-A cable and several recording packages)
Tascam Closed-Back Over-Ear Headphones (comfortable and clear)
Penker 10 Foot,1/4" --> 1/4" Guitar Cord
AmazonBasics Tripod Boom Microphone Stand (which really should have a 4th leg on the base for stability)
Kasonic Collapsible Music Stand w/LED light & Paper Holder
Total Cost (pre-tax) = $398
