The MC 52 is a two-capsule condenser microphone for mid-side recordings (MS). One of the capsules has a fixed Fig-8 pattern, the other one features a fixed Omni pattern (can be also ordered with front & rear cardioid patterns instead of  Omni). The two capsules are mounted at a fixed 90 degree angle to each other. The Cardioid (or Omni) faces front, the fig-8 faces side-to-side.

The capsules are a large-diaphragm center-terminated design, with an outside diameter of 33mm. They are shock-mounted within the MC52 head-basket.

The Nevaton MS52 Double MS has an exceptional low self noise (weighted noise level of only 4 dB-A in cardioid mode!

The capsules are additionally heated which guarantees the functionality of the microphone, also in very diverse climatic conditions.

The microphone has a XLR-7 output connector. A split cable (XLR-7 to 3x standard XLR) is part of the set.

Like other Nevaton microphones it has a transformer-less circuitry, and two large-diaphragm 33mm condenser capsules. The Nevaton MS52 Double MS is delivered in a fine wooden box.

As a wind-shield f.e. a Rycote 080203 is a good fit.
