Cardioid Condenser Lavalier (Tie-Clip) Microphone


We have been selling low cost clip-on microphones for years and we've always wanted to offer one of our ownBut we've never been able to find a good enough capsule for a sensible price. Until now.


At last we can supply you with a budget priced tie-clip mic that sounds almost the same as the much more expensive professional mics above, but without breaking the bank. Our CMZ capsule is actually used in several big-name brand microphones and its performance is really outstanding. The SSS CMM-1 is sensitive yet robust, with an all-metal casing, and is perfect for oral history recording and similar uses, as well well as - dare we say it - broadcast and podcast interviewing. It's a real find.
