P-84 Solid State Microphone

In the studio or on stage the P-84's warm, natural and detailed character provides an authentic un-hyped reproduction of a wide variety of sources. The first phantom powered microphone, the KM 84 remains the standard by which all modern SDC FET pencil microphones are judged. Like the KM 84, the P-84 achieves a balanced output through a generously sized transformer, eliminating interference and distortion. The P-84 is true to its inspiration in capsule and circuit design. With the higher quality available in today's electrical components, we have been able to improve low frequency responsiveness and raise the sound pressure level capacity. The P-84 brings authentic natural warmth and detail to satisfy the demands of the modern digital recording environment.

Microphone kit comes as a complete system including: Two P-84 Microphones in Wood Boxes, Two Omni and Two Cardioid Capsules with the Extra Capsules in a Wood Box, Two Shock Mounts, Two Hard Mounts, and a Stereo Mounting Bar, all packed in a Flight Case.

Reviews & Demos

'The 84's sound great, we tried the P-28's also, which I think I used on the last couple cd's, but they seemed a little boomy on my guitar when compared to the 84's. My Dobro is has a real strong low end, so maybe the P-28 picked up on that too much. Anyway, the P-84's seemed to give a more balanced view of the guitar, a little more crispness on top without sacrificing any low end. Just a real nice balance that seemed to work great with my guitar. Thanks!
-Rob Ickes, Blue Highway and IBMA award winning dobro player

'I also used the P-84 kit on acoustic piano during tracking for the latest Matisyahu record. In this scenario, I'd normally go for a pair of Coles 4038 ribbon mics [Tape Op #15], but it was fantastic to be able to just throw something on the piano without too much thought and immediately get positive results. Piano is a very particular instrument to present to clients. If you give them something dark and dusty, some people will immediately think it doesn't sound "pro"; with the P-84, you can give them a bright shiny piano, with enough low end to make it feel grand and "expensive." I was thrilled with the results. On acoustic guitar, you can make it sound beefy and wooden, but still with a nice clear top end as well.'
-Francisco Botero, Tape Op, The Creative Recording Magazine

SoundPure demonstrates the XY miking technique using the Peluso P-84 SDC Microphone Stereo Kit. The XY technique is an excellent technique for quick and easy recording setups or when the panning of the mics in the mix is not yet determined during the recording stage (the mics can be summed to mono or panned wider without fear of comb filtering)
