Sanken Introduces New CU-55 Cardioid Mic at AES

Latest Addition to the Fine Line of Sanken Studio Chromatic Series Mics

Pictured is Sanken's new CU-55 Cardioid Microphone.


Sanken microphones, Japan’s first and most original microphone company, is introducing at AES 2012 the new CU-55 cardioid microphone. Featuring a modern, compact design, the CU-55 provides a rich vintage sound in a small, lightweight, easy to position package.

The CU-55 houses a side-firing 16mm capsule with a resonant chamber like the top of the line Sanken CU-44x that has been tuned to create a perfect cardioid pattern, and is omnidirectional below 50 kHz. This new generation microphone is flat at 90 degrees, flat on axis, with very little proximity effect. The CU–55 uses the same diaphragm material as Sanken’s remarkable CU-100 and CUW-180 mics. Ideal for acoustic instruments like guitars, cello, harp and piano, the CU-55 can also handle the explosive levels of big brass and pounding tympani’s.

Top Nashville producer/engineer Chuck Ainlay remarked, “Sanken’s new CU-55 is right up there in quality with their entire family of top studio mics, and a very welcome addition. It’s very warm and natural, not hyped at all, and very musical. I’ve found lots of applications, from the high SPLs of a high-hat to the subtle nuances of acoustic guitar. It’s also really great as a compact side-address mic and easy to maneuver into tight spaces. Not everyone is aware of the Sanken legacy of outstanding studio mics, and this affordable addition is a great place to start.”

* Natural, transparent, uncolored sound
* Perfect cardioid pattern
* -10dB attenuation switch for two sensitivity settings
