Designed primarily for vocal applications, the Samson Q7x is a dynamic, handheld microphone. Its supercardioid polar pattern makes it quite suitable for the stage, as it tends to only pick up sound directly in front of the capsule. In this manner, feedback coming from monitors, mains, and other sound-reinforcement equipment can be greatly reduced.
The frequency response of the microphone extends from 80 Hz to 12 kHz, and has been tweaked to suit the voice, with a roll off in the lows to reduce muddiness and a bump in the midrange to improve clarity. Encased in a pneumatic shockmount, the diaphragm is quite safe from handling noise. A rugged, die-cast zinc-alloy casing has been employed to ensure a reliable performance for years to come. This mic boasts a max SPL of 145 dB, meaning it can handle loud situations with aplomb. You’ll find a mic clip included with the Q7x.
