Product Description

The M Audio Pulsar II small-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone takes M-Audio’s pencil condenser technology to an even higher level.
Designed in the U.S.A. by veteran engineers and hand-assembled to exacting standards, this precision microphone exhibits quality comparable to that of vintage classics. New features like -10dB pad and 80Hz high-pass filter switches, higher SPL than the original and a redesigned solid-brass backplate deliver smooth, accurate sound in the studio and on stage. The Pulsar II has many applications, including drum overheads, acoustic guitar, piano, close-miking strings and woodwinds, room miking and more.

Flexible New Features
The Pulsar II can adapt to many recording and live situations. The 12dB/octave high-pass filter reduces low-frequency rumble and the potential for overloading mic preamps with low-frequency signals. The Pulsar II also handles higher SPLs—an overall 2dB boost thanks to a new thermal diaphragm treatment, plus a new 10dB switchable attenuation pad.

What is your opinion of this product?
Used them as overheads to record drums. The result was pretty good, but I think they are a tiny bit lacking in clarity. The pad switch is very inconvenient. You need a small pin to move it. And the included clips are terrible, mic slips out too often. I had to use tape to hold them in. Overall they are not bad but if I knew what I was getting beforehand I probably would get something else.

What is your opinion of this product?
I have many small diaphragm condenser microphones and this is one of my favorites. To me they sound exactly like the source, non colored.
