FEATURES & OPERATION

 

The SCM 900 microphone offers transformerless balanced outputs and true condenser design (elements constantly biased by the pre-amp) for exceptionally low self noise and increased dynamic range, enhanced low and high end response with improved linearity across the frequency range and maximum SPL capacity. Internal Low Cut fi lter switch to minimize pop sound and stage rumble.

SCM 900 microphone features a large diaphragm capsule (1.0 inch), hand tooled from brass and featuring an ultra-thin (3- micron) gold-evaporated on Mylar diaphragm for maximum sensitivity, transient response, long life, detail and tone.

The microphone uses carefully selected Field Effect Transistors (FET), specially chosen for their low distortion and superior signal-to-noise ratio. (Note: For optimum performance, it is best to let your microphone warm up for 5 to 10 minutes)

SCM 900 is manufactured with the fi nest materials and features a machined housing with advanced internal shock mount construction for the highest structural integrity and rugged reliability. It requires 48V phantom power to operate, typically supplied by the microphone pre-amplifi er or mixing console. The optional Nady SMPS-1 phantom power supply can also be used.
