A great deal on a pair of great-sounding mics.

The C 430 is extremely small and keeps a low profile on the drum kit without compromising audio quality. Specifically designed for cymbal and overhead miking, the frequency response of the C 430 ensures a uniquely crisp sound.

Delivering an incomparably clear, balanced sound, this condenser pressure gradient microphone is an ideal choice for miking cymbals and hi-hats. Its frequency-independent cardioid polar pattern provides high gain before feedback. The C 430 connects to any mixer and needs no EQing. Phantom or battery powering options make this compact microphone extremely versatile. With its built-in windscreen, the C 430 will deliver a brilliant performance even on an open-air stage. Includes clips.

  • Frequency response tailored to cymbal and overhead miking
  • Extremely compact, professional-quality overhead
  • Phantom or battery powering options
  • The major benefits of the C 430 include:
  • Easy to use with any mixer with no need to use the EQ
  • Trouble-free use on open-air stages
  • Mounts securely on all commercial microphone stands

good mics

By Kenneth-0X55g

from Florida

these are good compact mics. Good sound quality and excellent durability. goes good with the akg c418's and d112 on the kick.


Crystal Clarity

By Paul-OJNKi

from Boonsboro, MD

We use these mics as overheads on our drum kit. The clarity on the cymbals is awesome! Our plan was to get a full kit, but these mics pick up all the pieces on our drum set so well that we are recondsidering. These mics are an excellent value.


Cheap mics that sound amazing.

By Mike-5h1wq

I was worried to buy these things at first because I figured that they were too cheap to sound good. Not the case. They were ready to go right out of the box. The only thing you have to do is spend a few minutes to figure out how to position them. Make sure they're high enough, otherwise the cymbals (especially the hi-hats) will sound tingy. Great mics though, you won't be disappointed.


good stuff

These mics are incredible for the money. Unlike some mics the frequency response is great. What you hear is what you played. No midrange junk, and plenty of highs for a nice overhead sound without being to thin.


You Need These Mics

By KenMeister

from Carson City, Nevada

These little mics put out a BIG sound. They are very good room/overhead mics possessing good frequency response.I use them for acoustic guitars and percussion. I normally prefer the C451's but they are expensive. These little guys sound almost as good.

This is a great mic. I use 2 of them for overheads in a project studio and also for acoustic guitars. Top notch at low notch price.


Great Deal

It's all you need for over-head mics. Also does pretty well on pianos.
