The C 747, the so called „pencil microphone“, was first built in 1987. Due to its excellent technical specifications, especially the wide and flat frequency range, it was used for the recording of all kinds of musical instruments, even those with very low frequencies.

The C747 V11 is a professional shotgun condenser capsule with a flat frequency response and a clean off-axis response.  

It is perfect for guitar, piano, drum and overhead recordings.

Thanks to its inconspicuous appearance, it is also widely used as a speech and lectern microphone.

The C747 V11 features an integrated RFi shield to block out unwanted interference from mobile phones, wireless microphones and other wireless devices. The C747 V11 ships with an extensive accessory set including a shock mount adapter, mini-gooseneck, stand adapter, mounting clamp, thread link and windscreen.
