Common name: Samar Audio Design MG33
Production Status: In production
The MG33 is a compact side-addressed small diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone. It shares the same capsule, the same electronics, and the same acoustical properties as the side-addressed MG32. It features low noise, and a smooth and very balanced response, with low distortion, and excellent low and high-end extension. An innovative, and optimised acoustical lens eliminates standing waves, reflections, and wave interference, and allows for minimal phase distortion anomalies along with excellent off-axis response. The capsule is the same as in the MG20 and high quality electronic parts, such as SMD Vishay-Dale resistors and through-hole Wima capacitors are used in the signal chain. The MG33 is ideal for pop, jazz, and classical piano, string instruments, brass instruments, acoustic guitars, drum overheads, percussions, room microphones, orchestra, and choir pickup. It is also well suited for live sound reinforcement, concert recordings, drum and percussion sessions, and any application where a small unobtrusive footprint is needed.
