The Earthworks C30 ChoirMic™ is a hanging gooseneck condenser microphone with 30' (9m) cable designed for installation in churches and other venues. With its wide pickup pattern at all frequencies, you can easily cover large groups with just a few microphones. The C30 will reproduce the sound of the choir with incredible articulation and no spotlighting, so no one voice outshines the rest. Instead, the choir will sound like a unified voice. With over 30dB of rear rejection, the C30 has more gain before feedback while picking up almost no sound from the rear of the microphone.

The C30 features a small microphone head attached to a flexible mini gooseneck, which allows quick and precise positioning of the microphone. The 30' (9m) attached Canare® Star Quad cable resists twisting due to temperature and humidity changes, so you can rest assured that the microphone will stay put once it has been properly aimed. Measuring just .86 inches (22mm) in diameter at its largest point, the C30 practically disappears from view when installed, providing a low profile miking solution.
