PLAY AS YOU PAY
Start building up your arsenal of recording gear -- this set of two FC2 large-diaphragm cardioid condensers is a great start! With the Golden Age FC-2 ST stereo-matched pair of condenser microphones, you get a lot for a little: two mics with selectable -10 dB pad and high-pass filter switches; center terminated, gold-sputtered, low-distortion capsules; a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, and a maximum SPL handling of 140 dB, making these mics a great fit for tackling any recording task. What's more, you get a stereo mounting bar, spider style metal shock mounts, and a case for storage. And with their durable brass bodies in a vintage design, the FC2 microphones look as great as they sound.

Stereo Matched to Within +/- 1 dB

When you're recording in stereo, your sound source will be picked up by not one, but two microphones. If these microphones have mismatched frequency responses or polar patterns, your stereo image will be thrown off -- you'll have a blurry picture of where each sound source or instrument is supposed to come from. To accurately capture a stereo image, you need to make sure the microphones for the left and right sides are well matched. With the FC-2 ST pair, you get two Golden Age FC2 mics that have been hand-selected to exhibit the same polar pattern and frequency response within 1 dB.

Two Mics for Many Uses

The wide frequency range and high maximum SPL of this duo allow for a wide range of recording applications. They work very well for stereo drum overheads, grand piano, acoustic guitars, vocal ensembles, room ambiences for string instruments, wind instruments, and many others. A maximum SPL of 140 dB means you can crank up the decibels without any worry of either microphone distorting, and a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz means these mics will capture every detail -- from the deepest kick drum to the highest harmonics.

Dependable Design

On the outside, your pair of Golden Age FC-2 condenser microphones feature a durable and heavy-duty brass casing to protect their inner circuitry. Inside, you'll find a gold-sputtered low-distortion capsule for clear and clean audio capture, even at high decibel levels. A fat-sounding output transformer will keep your signal full of body, so you can be sure that every take is getting the careful attention it needs during your recording sessions.

Included Accessories to Get You Started

Your FC-2 ST pair of microphones comes with a few accessories that'll get you on your way to recording right out of the box. A stereo mounting bar and spider style metal shock mounts will hold these two babies securely and in careful fashion to absorb vibrations caused by loud instruments and heavy drum hitting.

Features:

- Two large-diaphragm condenser microphones
- Maximum SPL of 140 dB
- Wide frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
