The Copperphone, unlike full range high fidelity microphones, operates within a limited bandwidth of frequencies which lends a nostalgic quality to the signal.
Some might compare the sound to an AM radio or a telephone. The sound is achieved through a combination of vintage telecommunications components and a mechanical filtering effect. The microphone’s element is rear ported into a hollow resonant chamber. As sound passes through the diaphragm and into the hollow chamber, upper mid range frequencies are accentuated while low and high frequencies are reduced.
No need to spend hours manipulating your recordings with plug-ins to achieve that retro, vintage sound - just grab your Copperphone mic. Use it in conjunction with your standard Mic setup and blend in the Copperphone track to accentuate the mid-range and push the definition on your sound source. Great on guitar cabinets and drums!
Placid mics are used by a veritable who's who of the audio world including; The Black Keys, Jack White, John Lydon, Snoop Dogg, Dave Rat, Johnny Marr, Alan Moulder, Adrian Utley, Bob Rock .....
