The 920 microphone has a 6-micron gold-sputtered diaphragm and a cardioid pickup pattern. Large capsule condensers are very sensitive, readily revealing very subtle sonic details. They also tend to pick up sounds outside the pattern more than some designs, which can lead to powerful feedback if you are not careful. We strongly advise experimentation with placement and isolation requirements with the gain initially set low to avoid equipment (and hearing) damage.
