Sanken Exhibits Full Range of Chromatic Mics at NAMM 2023
Anaheim, CA, NAMM 2023 – Sanken will be demonstrating the full range of six unique Sanken Chromatic professional studio microphones at NAMM, featuring 100kHz microphones designed for extreme high-resolution music recording. Sanken will display the remarkable supersonic wide-range CUX-100K and CO-100K mics, the CU-51 and CU-55 studio cardioids, and the dual-capsule condenser CU-44X MK II and CU-41R mics.
CO-100K Supersonic Wide-Range Omni-Directional Condenser Mic
With a 20Hz ~ 100kHz range, the CO-100K omni-directional condenser microphone is the world’s first super wide-band microphone designed specifically for professional high-resolution, high sample rate recording. Initially finding favor with engineers for orchestral main microphone arrays, it is now being used extensively in a wide range of applications including many acoustic instruments.
CUX-100K Supersonic Wide-Range Omni/Cardioid Dual Capsule Mic
The CUX-100K super wide range professional microphone is based on the very popular single omni-mode CO-100K design but with the ability to change modes with three settings: Cardioid (Far), Cardioid (Near) and Omni modes. The CUX-100K is an exclusive design, perfect for high-resolution, high sample rate recordings. “The definition of all frequencies was amazing.” – Jazz legend Don Grusin.
CU-44X MK II Crystal Clear, Open and Detailed Dual-Capsule Cardioid Mic
This mic features an extremely accurate dual-capsule design for incredibly low end and fast transients at the top delivering an immersive overall sound.
CU-51 Dual-Diaphragm Condenser Mic
The CU-51 offers a new dual-capsule design pioneered by Sanken, providing an exacting cardioid pattern ideal for vocals and a wide range of musical applications. The specially designed double capsule has one diaphragm that is optimized for low frequencies, while the other one captures the higher frequencies, with guaranteed phase coherency. The result is a mic with a unique “dimensional sound.”
CU-55 All Purpose Premium Quality Cardioid Mic
Featuring a modern, ultra-compact design, the CU-55 provides a rich vintage sound in a small, lightweight, easy to position package. Capable of high SPL, it has been tuned to create a perfect cardioid pattern, with little proximity effect and a truly flat response at 90º off axis.
CU-41R Dual-Capsule Cardioid Mic Totally Uncolored Sound
The Sanken CU-41R captures a perfect sonic panorama with a completely natural, uncolored sound. The special two-way transducer provides a totally flat frequency response and distortion-free performance.
