Nevaton MC52 – Double MS

3,139.00 excl. VAT


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 front & rear cardioid pattern.

The microphone has a XLR-7 output connector. A split cable (XLR-7 to 3x standard XLR) is part of the set. Three separate balanced line signals are provided – two cardioid (front & rear) & one figure-8. The microphone is also available with omni-directional characteristic (instead of the front & rear cardioid pattern)

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


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.
