Sanken Microphone Co., Ltd. is known as a professional microphone manufacturer which has the longest history in Japan. The company was established in 1925, and started to create microphones for really professional use.



Small, wide frequency range condenser microphone designed mainly for music recording, the CU-55 captures sound beautifully not only for a full orchestra, but also in solo acoustic instrument performances.
The pad switch has a -10dB attenuation and gives the CU-55 two different sensitivity positions, which makes the CU-55 particularly suited for cleanly capturing sound ranging from slight sound to such explosive, high pressure sound sources as trumpets, percussions and drums. Like all other Sanken microphones, the CU-55 is especially renowned not only for its high-quality audibility, but also its reliability.
