electret condenser mic, great for film/video use!

Rare vintage German mic!
Light cosmetic wear. Working perfectly. Tuchel* connector, with Tuchel-XLR cable included. Battery not included (not too hard to find and not too expensive, if you have phantom power you don't need a battery), no clip, manual or case.
Features Include:

    * Highly directional
    * Works with battery or phantom power
    * High sensitivity
    * Wide frequency response
    * Switchable bass roll-off filter protects against rumble, handling, pop and wind noise
    * On/off switch with battery test position
    * High output low noise


The K3 powering module is the heart of this Sennheiser professional modular microphone system and can be powered either by its internal battery or by phantom power. It can be combined with different condenser microphone modules to provide a wide variety of polar patterns.

The ME 80 mic capsule combines the characteristics of a pressure gradient transducer with those of an interference receiver Its directional pattern for frequencies below 2000 Hz has the shape of a super cardioid pattern and becomes club-shaped for frequencies above 2000 Hz. This directional pattern efficiently eliminates interfering and background noise thus guaranteeing good recordings even at larger distances.

*Tuchel is a brand name, like Neutrik or RCA. Tuchel was the premier supplier of connectors for German mic companies from the '50s to the '80s, until these connectors were phased out as XLR became the worldwide standard.
