A Condenser Microphone for Close-Miking and Very High Sound Pressure Levels—Revisited

Document Thumbnail

In the late 1960s, tube condenser microphones were superseded by their transistorized counterparts. Close-miking was adopted for pop and rock music. Microphones able to handle these very high SPLs, but keeping the familiar sonic characteristics, needed to be developed.
