The CharterOak E700 is a dual diaphragm solid state condenser microphone which employs two 1.22″ center terminated, gold sputtered, Mylar diaphragms and pure class A head amp electronics. While this microphone is excellent for universal applications, its rich sound, extremely low noise floor, and build quality make it a particularly excellent choice in the broadcast and voice over environments. The E700 offers cardioid, omni and figure-8 pickup patterns and a two-step sensitivity switch.
The CharterOak E700 is designed, built, quality tested, and delivered to the customer, with the intention of providing the quality condenser microphone. This has been achieved through an extended period of research and development, together with a period of beta testing performed by a select group of musicians, engineers and producers. The end result is an extremely high quality, distinctive sounding microphone. This high standard of quality extends beyond the microphone to the cables, shock mount and protective case of the E700. Whether you are in a recording or broadcast environment, a CharterOak E700 gives the discerning producer, engineer or recording artist an attractive option.
The microphone is delivered with a lifetime warranty on all parts and labor and easy access to factory technical support.
I’m aware we all agree that Charter Oak is not your typical “lets make kinda a half decent clone” company.
Very contrary they have always made a point a seeking a sound for themselves – that in a nut shell best could be referred to as distinctly American.
That having said, the E700 would find its typical use, when a indeed one of these classics come to mind too, the Neumann U47 fet.
Now the E700 is still anything but a clone, its a completely original design, and liek all Charter Oak products 100% (!!!) built in the USA.
BUt it would still have that typical “big size warm sound” such as the U47 fet has, it could also easiyl cope with ridiculous high SPL – and it would therefor be found in very similar applications, such as BD out, bass cabinets, double bass and yes, voice over!!
Its also very nice on piano bass strings.
There’s a lot of uses for it really.
