OVERVIEW

A perfect pair.

Matched pair microphones are critical for quality sound imaging. Carefully selected for their nearly identical response, matched pairs of Pulsar II microphones from M-Audio® deliver superior stereo performance. The brass bodies are equipped with internal shockmounts and low-noise transformerless electronics.

Each microphone offers a switchable 10 dB attenuation pad, plus an 80 Hz low-cut filter. Together, these functions allow the Pulsar II microphones to adapt to a variety of applications. The included hardware package allows Pulsar II microphones to be mounted in either an X-Y or ORTF (110º) stereo configuration. While ideal for stereo use, these microphones can also be used independently in a wide range of critical recording situations. This complete package includes a stereo mounting bar, hard mounts, risers, windscreens, and cloth bags, as well as a handsome and functional wooden storage/travel case.

FEATURES
  • Two Pulsar II microphones > performance matched for accurate stereo sound
  • Switchable pads and low-cut filters > provides outstanding versatility
  • Transformerless FET electronics > designed for low noise and minimal coloration
  • Solid brass body with internal shockmounts > delivers premium protection and performance

Order today and your drum set, horn section and choir recording will experience quantum improvement.

Comments about M-Audio PULSAR II:

I have a small project studio in NJ. I have tried many large and small diaphragm condensers as well as dynamic mics over my drum kit, until now I have not been happy with the drum sound from my overheads. My budget won't allow me to drop a grand or two on overhead mics - my wife would take exception to that...so I have been in the one to five hundred range for a pair. The last ones I tried were the CAD CM217 mics, that put up a respectible fight, considering I spent under fifty on the pair! I picked up the Pulsar pair on the SDOTD for a hundred clams and I can say it was money well spent! I record through a Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 into Cubase 7.5 and I just performed a test. My kit is a Tama Rockstar Custom 7 pc Fusion setup (8, 10, 12, 14, 16, w 22" bass) with Evans G2 heads on the tome and an Aquarian Superkick II on the bass drum - the toms came through sounding full and punchy, the cymbals and snare were crisp and clear and I was even getting a respecible attack sound from the kick pedal. This set comes with the mic clips, a "T" bar, nylon mic bags and a really nice wooden box. The set is matched at the factory, so these are perfect for stereo recording. Nice job M-Audio!
