Samson Q8 Overview
The Samson Q8 is a high quality handheld microphone designed for vocal and general instrument capturing in recording and sound reinforcement applications. The heart of the capsule features a neodymium element which results in exceptionally high gain with a low output noise floor. The linear frequency response results in accurate reproduction of vocals. High SPL response enables the Q8 to be placed near transient signal sources such as drums and guitar cabinets with minimal distortion and noise. The element is internally shock mounted which further reduces output noise.
