Gold Standard Microphones from Placid instruments
The most stunning and realistic recordings could never happen without a high-grade small-diaphragm condenser microphone, which is exactly what Placid Instruments specialise in. Boasting the highest possible level of precision, their measurement microphones display a hyper-accurate transient response and pure, uncoloured off-axis response, making them the ultimate recording tool - especially when it comes to capturing classical ensembles and even orchestras.
A Placid Instruments Microphone for Every Situation
To set up engineers with the optimal dynamic range when working with both the quietest and most nuanced of instruments as well as the loudest sound sources, Placid Instruments have designed a series of microphones with varying sensitivity levels. Ideal for drums and percussion, the PCR45 can handle an SPL level of up to 160 decibels while, over at the other end of the spectrum, the PCR22 has a larger diaphragm, giving the sensitivity a considerable boost while ensuring minimal noise.
