The Nevaton MC49 is a high-quality, small-diaphragm microphone used to record a wide range of instruments including strings, brass, piano, acoustic guitar, and drums.
While the MC49 delivers exceptional quality for single instrument recording, it truly excels when used as A/B outriggers or to record groups such as full orchestras, chamber ensembles, and string quartets. It is also extremely effective for sampling and capturing ambient field recordings.

 NEVATON SMALL DIAPHRAGM MICROPHONE MC49 –

The Nevaton MC49 is a high-quality, small-diaphragm microphone used to record a wide range of instruments including strings, brass, piano, acoustic guitar, and drums.
While the MC49 delivers exceptional quality for single instrument recording, it truly excels when used to record groups such as full orchestras, chamber ensembles, and string quartets. It is also extremely effective for sampling and capturing ambient field recordings.

Nevaton MC49’s are used in many major studios and concert halls around the world, including the Salzburg Festival, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic and many others more.

The MC49 features a Class ‘A’ transformer-less circuitry and operates on 9-52V phantom power. Its 20mm capsule has a flat frequency response and a dynamic range of 134 dB. The MC49’s excellent impulse response captures the subject’s finest details without colouration and its gold-sputtered, ultra-thin transducers pass and artificial ageing process to ensure life-long stability.
Although unusual for a small capsule microphone, the MC49 has a dual-diaphragm design!  Each part of the MC49’s transducer is isolated and dedicated to its respective amplifier.

The MC49’s transducer is mounted with an elastic suspension system to significantly reduce vibration and handling noise. A 3 position switchable low-cut filter (linear, 70Hz, 200Hz) is provided to reduce low frequency interference and/or proximity effect. The body of the MC49 is made of brass and is finished with dark gray non-reflective paint on an epoxy base. It is packaged in a fine hardwood box with a printout of its individual frequency response. An isolation clip is included. The MC49 is also available in stereo pair. Like all Nevaton microphones, the MC49 is 100% handmade, laboratory tested, and tuned with Brüel & Kjær equipment.
