PreSonus is now shipping two new microphones which they believe are suitable for a wide variety of recording applications. A spokesperson told us, “Whether purchased at the same time or separately, the new PreSonus PX-1 large-diaphragm cardioid condenser mic and PM-2 stereo set of matched small-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphones give you the core of a high-quality microphone collection.”
Here’s the details direct from Presonus…
The PreSonus PX-1 is an excellent solution for recording vocals, guitar, podcasts, and much more. A true large-diaphragm, side-address condenser microphone, the PX-1 features a 1-inch (25 mm), gold-sputtered capsule designed to provide exceptional clarity throughout its frequency response range. Rugged construction and top-quality performance specifications make the PX-1 an excellent addition for any home recording or streaming studio.
A fine choice for stereo recordings of acoustic instruments, drum overheads, ensembles and more, the PreSonus PM-2 set comprises a sonically matched pair of small-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphones. Each PM-2 microphone is equipped with a ¾-inch (19 mm), gold-sputtered capsule housed in an ultra-light chassis, making it easier to perfectly position your microphones without fighting gravity. The PM-2 set comes with a stereo bar for XY mic placement, and the two microphones can be used together or individually, making them an excellent addition for any home or professional recording environment.
Pricing and Availability:
Both new microphones are available now at PreSonus dealers at U.S. street prices of: PX-1 $129.95 and PM-2 $129.95.
