A superior quality condenser microphone for use when recording either in a studio or at a live performance. The small diaphragm gold plated capsule is precision engineered for superior clarity, and accurate frequency reproduction.
This condenser mic has a wide frequency range of 20hz to 20Khz covering anything from a kick drum to vocals and wind instruments. With the JS-22 in your collection there is no need to purchase additional instrument mics.
The rich tones of acoustic guitars are recorded beautifully with this microphone.
Although this recording microphone could be used to record the output of electric guitars using their speakers I have always preferred to use a DI Box and record the output guitar directly.
For recording louder sound sources such as a drum kit, the mic comes equipped with a 'Pad' switch to reduce the output by -10db.
When you want to cut out the ultra low frequencies there is a 'low cut' switch that cuts off frequencies below 80Hz. This can be useful to reduce handling noise when using the JS-22 as a vocal mic.
This studio microphone requires a good phantom power supply of at least 36v dc and works best at the professional standard 48v dc phantom power supply.

This means that if you intend using the JTS-22 with home studio equipment you may have to purchase a separate phantom power supply. This is because some equipment only provides a 12v phantom power supply which is not enough to power this microphone.
The JS-22 C229 1/2" Studio Condenser Microphone package includes a foam windshield, mic stand clip and ridged carry case.
