Smooth, Authentic, Versatile, Affordable


The FC-357 Clarion is designed for the modern day FET lover. This mic features unique characteristics ideal for recordists seeking an affordable, classic sounding, FET condenser microphone.

Classic FET sound with a modern touch


The FC-357 Clarion blends classic and modern FET sound. It features a uniquely tuned frequency response that produces the smooth natural character found in classic FET condenser microphones with a touch of smooth modern airiness. What you get is a classic sound you will fall in love with. We paid careful attention to remove any harsh character often found in modern FET condenser microphones.

Features and accessories every recording engineer needs


The FC-357 Clarion has the features you need to achieve the sound you want. The unique three-position attenuation and gain switch offers you powerful recording options with no adverse distortion. The +10dB gain switch, which boosts the microphone's output, makes it less dependent on preamps to achieve excellent sound. Alternatively, leave the gain switch at its default, or use the -10dB pad to reduce the microphones output and use the gain on your preamp to get more preamp character. The -10dB pad also makes this mic great for recording very loud sound sources.

The FC-357 Clarion also has three selectable polar pattern options: omnidirectional, cardioid and figure-8. With three polar patterns you can tackle any recording technique. Each microphone also comes with a custom foam windscreen specifically designed for studio use. Whether you are trying to reduce plosives from an instruments or vocals, this custom windscreen is a valuable included accessory. Finally, the heavy-duty shock mount reduces external vibrations in any environment.

Quality internal components


The FC-357 Clarion features our custom designed 28.25mm dual diaphragm capsule that accurately captures your source. The electronics include a low-noise FET and custom-wound output transformer that work together to provide you with an authentic and classic sound with a modern touch.
