Talk to me about the Sony c800g in Omni mode

Hey guys,

I had a a c800g that I had to sell last year. Great mic obviously.

I read a review recently where someone said vocals with it in omni mode was magical.

I never tried it in omni, always used it in cardioid.

Anyone here who has used the c800g in omni for vocals can tell me how it changed the tone, what it sounded like vs. vox in cardioid?

C800g is an amazimg mic in cardiod and omni. But in omni is mote natural and less sibilant. You avoid the proximity effect that can sometimes be a bit strange in C800g.

I should look for audios but it has been a long time since I used the c800g because I am from Argentina and it is very difficult to get official Sony service here. I have not got the replacement Tubes. But I can tell you that in my experience the omni mode is the best version of the c800g. Obviously it depends on the use and acoustics of the recording studio.
