The GA-8000 Large Diaphragm Tube Condenser Microphone from Golden Age Project is a tube microphone equipped with a semiconductor active cooling system that results in a higher signal-to-noise ratio compared to most other tube microphones. Designed for high-quality performance and modern sound character, the GA-8000 uses a ROGERS ceramic circuit board that has superior insulation parameters and offers a more stable performance. The coupling and bypass capacitors is of a very high quality, resulting in a deep, exact low frequency performance and a delicate, transparent high frequency reproduction. The semiconductor active cooling and external cooling system is used in the GA-8000 ensures that the GA-8000 has the highest possible signal-to-noise ratio.
