Microphone Capsule
MK 8

  • pure pressure-gradient transducer
  • figure-8 pattern with near-ideal consistency across the frequency range
  • side-addressed (pickup perpendicular to the microphone body)
  • optimal for use in M/S and Blumlein stereo recording

This capsule type is a true dipole (bidirectional) transducer, operating with a single diaphragm. Its main axis is at a right angle to the capsule, and is marked at 0° and 180° with a red and a black dot respectively.

Although our normal production tolerances are very close, we can deliver specially matched capsule pairs for a small extra charge.
