Following the success of our highly acclaimed handcrafted ribbon microphones, our new line of Samar TF10 condenser microphones (to replace Omni8 TF08) offers the same obsession to uncompromised quality and attention to detail. As with the MF65 and VL37 series which set new standards for high end ribbon microphones; essentially changing how they are being used by demanding engineers in today’s high-resolution recordings, the new condenser series offers a commensurate step-up in their field.
The heart of the TF10 is a unique proprietary cardioid capsule designed by the company’s owner and chief engineer Dr. Mark Fouxman. The capsule is a single sided 3-chambered design. The 1st and 2nd chambers shape the capsule's frequency response, and the 3rd sets time delay. This 3-chamber independence allows precise optimization of all parameters; it also ensures superior frequency and phase integrity in off axis response, so it takes EQ very well. The unique construction and use of special materials eliminates the capsules parasitic capacitances and ensures low distortion and ultimate transparency, providing a very realistic sound picture. The capsule has been designed to work without usual for condenser microphones DC-to-DC bias converter, which reduces distortions even further.
Special attention has been paid to the acoustical optimization of the TF10 microphone body, where the capsule itself serves as a lollipop, without any surrounding external body. This arrangement eliminates any sound waves interference. On its bottom the capsule/lollipop mounted on a special shaped acoustical lens. These facets along with acoustically open mesh screen eliminate any standing waves and reflections and ensure the most acoustically transparent sound possible.
The circuitry of the TF10 microphones integrates the highest quality components for low noise, and very natural and low coloration sonics. The TF10 has extremely high overload capability and handles and passes an undistorted output signal up to 10V!
The TF10 body utilizes the distinguished Samar Audio design characteristics and available in Stainless Steel, or Carbon Fiber finishes. The TF10 comes with a unique, very slick and unobtrusive shock mount and a US made wooden storage box.
Created to facilitate a wide range of applications the TF10 delivers smooth sound, with deep bass response and an un-hyped, sibilance free, top end. Due to the un-colored and neutral nature of the sonics built into the TF10, it is especially suitable for applications where sibilance-free sound is a priority, notably vocals and voice over applications. The extended low end and smooth top end make the TF10 an excellent choice for violins, brass instruments, mandolin, acoustic and electric guitars, drum overheads, room microphones, orchestra, and choir among other recording, broadcast, and classical music applications.
Available in a silver or carbon finish the TF10 ships with a brand new in-house designed mounting system.
