Nevaton’s MC420 is a classically designed studio condenser microphone that maintains the level of sound quality Nevaton is known for, while remaining affordable. The MC420 performs well as a vocal microphone and for recording most acoustic instruments. It is also well suited for voice over, post-production, and broadcast.
The MC420 is available with cardioid and omni-directional polar patterns. It shares the same 24mm large-diaphragm capsule as the Nevaton MC51, and carries a linear sensitivity throughout its entire frequency range. The amplifier is built to the Class ‘A’ transformerless standard and all transistors pass a special selection process to guarantee minimal self-noise levels. The MC420 operates on 48V phantom power and a gold-plated XLR-connector is used as an output-connector. It can handle SPL up to 135 dB without distortion. The microphone’s internal components are elastically mounted to lower vibration and handling noise to an absolute minimum. The result is a warm, revealing sound with clear midrange and natural bass.
Like all Nevaton microphones, the MC420 is 100% handmade. Each microphone is carefully tested in an anechoic chamber to ensure a level of quality that easily competes with Europe’s top brands. The Nevaton MC420 is packaged in a fine wooden box and comes with a two-year extended manufacturer’s warranty. Matched stereo pairs are available.
