A Workhorse Mic for Stage and Studio
Have you been looking for an affordable stage or studio mic that delivers great sound and can stand up to the wear and tear of performing? The Samson Q8x dynamic vocal microphone is a workhorse that provides exceptional sound reproduction for live and studio vocals along with instrument performances. It has a rich, tailored midrange presence, supercardioid pickup pattern, and a multi-axis capsule shockmount to minimize handling noise.
The core of a great performance mic
The Q8x offers a solid, wide dynamic range produced by its neodymium dynamic mic element. It also features a supercardioid pickup pattern with excellent off-axis rejection, which means your voice stays center stage and the unwanted stuff stays out. You’ll also enjoy a smooth frequency response and low-frequency roll-off for balanced audio reproduction no matter the application.
A multitalented mic
If recording is your thing, bring the Q8x to the studio and discover its versatility in capturing instruments and vocals. The Q8x is designed to withstand high sound pressure levels up to 150dB SPL — vocals sound big and clear, snares full and snappy, and big guitar cabinets are allowed to wail.
No kid gloves required
The Q8x has a new rugged die-cast body and hardened steel grille, along with an improved multi-axis capsule shockmount for minimizing handling noise. While engineers at Sweetwater don’t recommend using it as a hammer, the Q8x is built to last and to give you a great performance night after night.
