Peavey Adds CM1 Condenser to Studio Pro Series


July 24, 2004

Peavey has announced the Studio Pro CM1, a handheld condenser microphone
with a cardioid polar response intended as a main or support microphone in
studio and live applications.

Studio Pro series mics are suited for recording engineers looking for affordable,
high quality recording mics. The CM1 contains a medium-format condenser element
designed to handle SPL levels up to 136 dB while maintaining a clean, natural
sound. It has a sensitivity of -43 dBv per pascal and a low noise floor, equivalent
to only 24 dB SPL.

The built-in shock mount reduces handling noise considerably, making the CM1
ideal for close-range vocal or instrument pickup. The frequency response is
tailored to give a crisp, intelligible sound from 50 Hz to 16 kHz. The CM1
is equipped with a dual-layer pop filter to reduce pops and wind noise.
