Manley Laboratories Langevin CR-3A

Microphone Description

Brand: Manley Laboratories
Model: Langevin CR-3A

The Langevin CR-3A is a cardioid capacitor microphone suitable for all-purpose use in recording of music, vocals, and speech. Powered by standard 48V phantom power, the all-discrete amplifier circuit employs very low noise transistors and selected FETs.

The capsule is a large diameter (1' actual, 1.25' overall) machined brass ring and back-plate construction. The diaphragm membrane is 6 micron gold over polyester film. Two slide switches on the microphone provide for 10dB pad attenuation and bass roll-off (high pass filter).
