High Resolution, High Transient Response, High Input SPL

Sanken Chromatic CU-31 and CU-32Los Angeles/Anaheim NAMM2019 – Sanken Chromatic Microphones is exhibiting at NAMM, Booth #15123 ACC North Hall Level 1, the new CU-31 and CU-32 compact condenser microphones for professional recording. While both mics share identical specs, the CU-31 features an on-axis pickup pattern and the CU-32 has a perpendicular side-firing pattern.Longtime favorites throughout the recording industry, the CU-31 and CU-32 were discontinued in the USA, but by popular demand are now back in stock.

Featuring a smooth cardioid polar pattern and 6dB higher sensitivity than conventional microphones, the mics accurately capture sound from quiet nuanced acoustic guitar to explosive percussion. The CU-31 and CU-32 are the newest models in the Sanken Chromatic series of professional mics, which includes the CO-100K supersonic wide-range omni-directional condenser mic and the CU-51 dual-capsule cardioid mic.

Delivering natural, uncolored sound, the on-axis CU-31 and side-firing CU-32 feature Sanken’s original Push-Pull type capsule design, resulting in a marked increase in sensitivity. In addition to their high maximum SPL of 148dB at 1%THD, the mics offer a very flat frequency response from 20Hz to 18,000Hz.

At less than 5 inches in length, the CU-31 and CU-32 are small, lightweight microphones suitable for a wide variety of recording applications, including acoustic guitar, brass and woodwinds, chorus vocals, drums, strings, and sound effects. Unique to Sanken microphones, the mics house a light, durable, corrosion-free one-micron titanium diaphragm, ensuring the mic is immune to changes in temperature and humidity.  MSRP: $995
