The C42 is our general purpose cardioid microphone, useful for most studio and stage pickup applications where a neutral pickup is best, at an affordable price.



The Josephson Engineering C42 is an all-purpose cardioid condenser microphone suitable for multiple recording applications including spot miking acoustic and amplified instruments, drums and drum overheads, ensemble and choir pickups, concert recording, sound effects and vocals. Standard C42 microphones are satin machined stainless steel for years of rugged use.

C42 electronics feature a selected discrete FET driving a fully balanced symmetrical transformerless discrete class-A output stage. The output impedance is low enough that very long cable runs may be used without signal degradation. Although the microphone is specified for full P48 phantom power, it will function with phantom power as low as 24 volts, with some limitation in maximum SPL.
  • Output Level, mV/Pa: 8.5
  • Frequency Response (at 60 cm): 40-20,000 Hz ±2 dB from curve
  • Equivalent Noise Level, A-weighted: 21 dB
  • Maximum SPL (with P48 power): 135 dB
  • Output Impedance: 50 (recommended load 1K)
  • Power Requirements: P48 phantom power, 4.5 mA
  • Temperature Range: -10 to +50°C
  • Dimensions: 21mm diameter, 98mm long
  • Weight: 80 grams

    Impressionnant!
    J'ai reçu mes c42 aujourd'hui. Aussitôt branché dans mon Focusrite ISA direct dans ma RME 802. Une petite track de guitare acoustique pour le plaisir et WOW! Impressionnant pour le prix. Ça rivalise très bien avec les KM184 pour beaucoup moins cher. Read more
