The Audix SCX25A is a professional live and studio condenser microphone with an elegant design and a patented capsule suspension system. Uniquely shockmounted within an intricate machined brass ring, the SCX25A capsule is completely isolated from the microphone body and electronics. By successfully minimizing acoustic reflections and diffractions, the SCX25A delivers a pure, open-air sound with exceptional detail and realism.
"I honestly think the SCX25A is one of the best mics available, and destined to become a classic." Dennis Leonard, SupervisingSound Editor, Skywalker Sound
"What you hear is what you get. Not only is it the best sounding piano mic available, the shape, size and mount allow you to get right on top of the soundboard." Paul Mitchell, Front of House, Joe Sample and The Crusaders
"Those in need of an excellent piano mic need look no further. As an overhead drum mic, it provides a transparent and fullsounding presentation that is up there with the best. It's also a great choice for a sizable range of vocal recording duties." Richard Salz, ELECTRONIC MUSICIAN
With a smooth uniform frequency response from 20 Hz - 20 kHz, the SCX25A is very consistent when responding to on and off-axis signals, exhibiting excellent phase coherence and minimal proximity effect. The SCX25A is characterized with a wide cardioid polar pattern which enables the sound engineer the opportunity to blend the sound of the instrument or vocal with the sound of the room. Other features include a one-inch (25 mm) gold vapor capsule, miniaturized electronics, and an extremely small footprint. The SCX25A will handle sound pressure levels in excess of 135 dB and will provide up to 20 dB of ambient noise rejection.
In addition to vocals, the SCX25A is ideally suited to capture acoustic instruments such as piano, guitar, vibes, woodwinds, brass, percussion toys, drum overheads, orchestra and symphony sectionals.
The SCX25A, which is manufactured to exacting standards and tight tolerances, features a precision machined brass body, innovative capsule suspension system, steel mesh grill, black e-coat finish, laser etched model and serial number, Switchcraft XLR connector, and heavy duty nylon clip.
