The DrAlienSmith Capsule8 is a figure 8 dynamic microphone designed for low frequency sources that also need to have a focused mid range to fit easily into a mix. It's tonal characteristics and convenient size make it perfect for capturing floor toms, rack toms, kick drums and bass amps.


The Capsule8 features a 300 ohm 50mm headphone driver as a capsule. These capsules pick up sound in a figure 8 polar pattern, and like some ribbon microphones, the rear of the mic sounds different to the front. The front side of the Capsule8 has a brighter characteristic while the rear side has a darker tone. This gives the Capsule8 two distinctive voices.


While taking a some design inspiration from the classic Beyer M380 (which also used a headphone driver), the Capsule8 is definitely not intended to be a clone or a remake, it has a very distinct sound all of its own.


The Capsule 8 is a dynamic microphone and is unaffected by phantom power. It comes with its own microphone bag and holder.
