The MKH 800 TWIN is a universal studio condenser microphone of exceptional quality. It includes a dual capsule consisting of two symmetrical push-pull transducers with high linearity. This is a "side fire" microphone with the two cardioid pick-up patterns of the transducer aligned back-to-back across the axis of the microphone. The signals of both transducers are not combined in the microphone in order to generate differing pick-up patterns but are available separately as two channels at the microphone output. This allows the pick-up patterns of the MKH 800 TWIN to be remotely adjusted. The signals can be combined in any desired way in the mixing console in order to create all pick-up patterns from omni-directional to figure-8 with an infinite number of intermediate stages. Based on the legendary MKH 800, this microphone opens up to a new dimension of studio recordings.

  • Color: Nextel grey

  • The remote adjustability and the variable pick-up patterns make the MKH 800 TWIN a universal main microphone, soloist microphone or supporting microphone.

  • The pick-up patterns can be set and optimised under monitoring conditions. In other words, it is not necessary to fix the pick-up patterns definitively before recording.

  • A wide range of mixes for stereo and surround are possible (including in parallel).

  • Saving of the microphone signals in two channels also allows an unlimited range of mixes to be realised at a later date.

  • The high sensitivity ensures interference-free signal paths as a result of high signal levels. The inherent noise of downstream microphone amplifiers is thus of minor importance.

  • Very low inherent noise prevents the masking of filigree sound structures. The depth of the acoustic can be heard more clearly too.

  • High linearity of the transducers minimises the signal distortions and ensures the transparency of the sound even at high sound levels.

  • The frequency response extends to 50 kHz, thus improving the resolution for complex acoustic details.

  • Stable pick-up patterns minimise sound distortion in the direct and diffuse field.

  • Negative acoustic effects caused by the housing and the sound inlet basket are minimised.

  • The small, slim design and the optionally dark housing design (Nextel) make it visually unobtrusive.

CONSUMER ALERT FOR WIRELESS MICROPHONE SYSTEMS
Most users do not need a license to operate a wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating a microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change. For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCC’s wireless microphone website at www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones
