The beyerdynamic Model MC 740 N (C) P48
multi-directional condenser microphone

The beyerdynamic MC 740

Due to five switchable polar patterns, the MC 740 is a universal studio micro­phone. It has been designed without compromise to be able to capture every sound detail with absolute clarity and purity. Applications for the MC 740 include recording orchestras as a main microphone, resulting in a superb trans­parent sound. Due to a switchable two-position roll-off filter and a switchable pre-attenuation pad, the MC 740 is also suitable for close miking instruments.
