Hint# Looking to Mic up a drum kit?
Then check out our 6 part video series on drum miking, we explain what to look for and which mic is best for which instrument.

The MC 930 is a flexible true condenser microphone with switchable -15 dB attenuation and low-cut filter. If you appreciate the clear sound and high impulse fidelity of small-diaphragm condenser microphones, the MC 930 is the right choice for you. It covers a wide range of application scenarios in the studio and on stage due to its compact design and the authentic and detailed sound character, whereby all post-processing options are also open.

Whether for acoustic guitar, piano, Hihat, overheads, choir, orchestra, voice or solo instruments of any kind, there is almost no sound source where the MC 930 is not convincing.  For speech and vocal recordings from a short distance as well as for outdoor recordings, we recommend the WS 101 wind shield.

Above all, its natural sound reproduction is appreciated by users. Equipped with a switchable pre-damping and a switchable low-cut, the MC 930 also impresses with remarkable technical features.

Like all microphones of the M series, the MC 930 is also elaborately handmade at our factory in Heilbronn, Germany.
