Austrian Audio

Description

Designed, engineered and manufactured in Vienna, the CC8 from Austrian Audio is built around a small-diaphragm handmade true condenser capsule. With a max SPL of 156 dB and an equivalent noise level of 16 dB(A), the CC8 delivers a best-in-class dynamic range. Its rugged design and pristine results make it perfect for situations involving high sound pressure levels on stage, like cymbals and overheads, but it's also good for picking up strings and other low dynamic acoustic instruments, classical ensembles and choirs in a wide variety of uses, including live performance, broadcasting and studio recording. Inspired by a legend, and advanced for the modern recordist, the CC8 offers a linear frequency response and a natural and open sound with smooth and silky heights.
