The S241 is greatly appreciated by leading sound engineers because it is based on professional craftsmanship and top quality standards. The S241 is a 1/2” goldevaporated diaphragm microphone with an inter-changeable capsule and low noise microphone pre-amplifier circuits. Its modular capsule design allows the user to change from cardioid to omni polar pattern as needed. The S241 is an ideal candidate for capturing the transient sounds from acoustic guitars, snare drums, hi-hats and overheads. All these features make the S241 a great tool for rental companies as standard equipment.
