The Sony C-38B is a large diaphragm condenser microphone designed for use in the recording studio.  While the mic is indeed a condenser, it has a classic look and the outside is reminiscent of a ribbon mic.  The mic has options for both cardioid and omni polar pick up patterns and the mic also features a pad and a low cut filter.  The mic will pick up frequencies between 30 Hz and 18 KHz.

OVERALL OPINION

The Sony C-38B is overall a very impressive microphone.  I think that anyone who has used this would agree with me when I say it has a top notch tone and is great in a variety of situations.  I've gotten great results with it for recording all sorts of different instruments including vocals, acoustic piano, acoustic guitar, and pretty much any other acoustic instrument where I would a lot of details to be picked up.  This is a sensitive mic and will work wherever you want to make sure that you are getting all the subtle sounds from acoustic instruments.  Being that this is a top tier condenser microphone from one of the best in the business, this isn't a cheap mic.  Having said that, if you are seriously looking for a high end condenser microphone with some versatility, you know that you have to pay a good amount as you will get what you pay for.  I would absolutely recommend looking into this mic regardless of if you are a home or professional studio owner as it is both a great mic to add to a larger collection or to get a good one started.  I hope I'm able to use the Sony C-38B in the future more as it is a really great sounding microphone that I find useful for a lot of different applications.
