Holophone, the innovators in multi-channel surround microphone technology, is introducing a line of single-channel stage and studio mics. The new Super C handheld supercardioid condenser is the first in a series of customizable performance mics. Combining ruggedness, low handling noise and ergonomic comfort, the Super C features the same proprietary capsule technology employed in Holophone's highly acclaimed surround microphones, including the award-winning H2-PRO mic used in broadcast, concert sound, film and music recording.
Beyond delivering a distinct sonic character, the mics feature a design that allows users to quickly customize a mic's appearance on the fly. Each microphone's casing, windscreen, and grille can be instantly changed to any of a wide range of custom colors, providing unprecedented on-stage/on-camera visual versatility, as well as a whole new level of hygienic appeal.
"Today's microphone market is littered with mundane, generic clones of one another," says Holophone President and Founder Michael Godfrey. "We believe vocal performers and musicians want a more personalized, unique, and comfortable solution for their instrument."
"Hand assembled in Canada, the Super C includes a custom carrying case, mic clip, and other accessories, and will be available for $499 MSRP. Holophone will showcase its entire new line of products — including a soon-to-be-announced top secret stage and studio mic — at NAMM 2013 in Anaheim, from January 24-27, 2013.
