Bock Audio 241
The Bock Audio 241 condenser microphone features tube and transformer circuitry that are all point-to-point wired, providing a proven high standard of sonic quality. When you use this mic to record vocals, you’re getting the best in all frequency ranges: the high end is present and natural, while the low end is tight and controlled. Because the midrange isn’t overly emphasized, laying stacks of vocal takes won’t result in an unwanted build-up. The unit also features a built-in Bright/Normal switch that makes this mic great for recording instruments, too. And although this mic has been designed to come as close as possible to the company’s flagship 251 unit, it actually costs 30 percent less than that microphone, making it ideal for those who want to shop smart.
