Partnering the OD5 is the OC7, a microphone that shares the same innovative swivel joint for advanced mic positioning, but with the renowned OCC7 capsule from the CC8 small diaphragm condenser microphone. Being a condenser microphone, the OC7 has a wider frequency response with greater sensitivity when compared to the OD5, allowing for more detail to be captured from the source. It's perfectly matched for use on all instruments that have particularly lively transients, including percussion, piano, acoustic guitar but also stringed instruments.
With sound quality matching the CC8 small diaphragm condenser microphone, the OC8 is unique in that it can be positioned in precarious places on the stage without fear of causing excess damage. You’d never dream of putting the CC8 near a snare drum for example as it is a refined microphone without a sturdy grille and the shape of the mic means that it is awkward to position, but the rugged housing and unique swivel joint of the OC8 means that it can be used creatively on stage out the way of overzealous musicians and without fear of causing damage by awry drum sticks!
Due to the extended response of the OC7, it does feature slightly differently tuned high-pass filter compared to the OD5 with positions for 40 and 80Hz to cut off extraneous lows and stage rumble. The OD5 by comparison has options for 80 and 120Hz.
