Samson C02 (Pair) Reviews


Samson C02 (Pair)

It seems a bit of a cop out to repeat what\'s said in the previous review, but the big thing about these mics is that they are really excellent value for money. I\'d seen a good review of them when I was looking for several pairs of mics to help mic up a large wind ensemble for outdoor gigs, so I had to find something good but not expensive. If I hadn\'t bought these, I\'d have got the Rode NT5s, which at the time were at least double the price. I figured it was worth buying a pair to see how they went. I\'m glad I did - I went on to get 6 pairs altogether, which with my existing lockerful of dynamic mics and a few better condenser mics, means I can mic up pretty well anything now and usually have a choice of what I use.

While I\'d normally use something else for pure stereo recording, these will do the job, and if you\'re on a strict budget, a pair or two will get you out of many holes. Drum overheads, choir recording, in fact most instruments work well with them.

The only niggle I have is that while the capsules unscrew, there aren\'t any omni or hypercardioid capsules to replace them with. Having shockmounts (a bit primitive), foam windshields and a durable case does compensate, though.


Samson C02 Review

I\'d been borrowing a friend\'s AKG CS1000 condenser mic for a few months for use as an overhead at gigs and decided it was time to bite the bullet and buy my own. Being on a tight budget, I knew I wasn\'t going to be able to afford anything like the CS1000 so I started to sniff around the web for suitable mics. Having visited a number of forums and seeing mostly positive reviews on these Samson mic\'s, I decided to take a chance and go for them, along with a Sennheiser Stereo Bar (made by K&M) to mount them on. Having used them on a gig recently where I only used a bass drum mic and these 2 as overheads, I have to say I was more than impressed. There was no noise from them out front and the response was incredible. Having a couple of drummer friends in the audience also helped in confirming the excellent job the mics were doing for me. They reported that everything sounded crystal clear, especially the cymbals. Unfortunately, overhead\'s are the most overlooked aspect of micing kits up in many venues which is a real shame as you can do a hell of a lot for your drum sound with just a pair of simple condenser mic\'s and a bass drum mic. So if any drummers out there are looking for an affordable pair of overhead mics to boost their sound, then these are highly recommended. You will need Phantom power though which wasn\'t mentioned on the listing, but this would be obvious to studio guys - though not so obvious to us drummers! Most mixing desks have this facility and some mic\'s even allow you to insert a small battery to supply Phantom power if it\'s not available on a desk, though these Samson\'s don\'t take batteries. All in all, for the pricing point these are at, I cannot fault them.
