The way the Sony C800G has a natural boost of around 8 to 14 kHz adds what many engineers call “air” or “shine” without the need to generously boost an EQ. The way the Sony C800G has a natural boost of around 8 to 14 kHz adds what many engineers call “air” or “shine” without the need to generously boost an EQ. The C800G only graced the studio in 1992 – well after these exhilarating days and into an incredibly different studio scene. The 6AU6 vacuum that is in C800G is known for the heat it gives to the lower mids of the frequency spectrum.
The Sony C800G is also a top choice for recording voice overs in post-production, again due to the fact that it represents the silkiest of all high frequencies, without the sound ever getting unnaturally hyped.
What is the Sony C800G used for
The REDD in combination with the c800g and CL1b sounds like a well-maintained u47 with more treble on good days. The groundbreaking design of the Sony C800G, its premium components, and the hunger for competitively priced studio products (this thing is eye-wateringly expensive) mean that this rare specimen is unlikely to be replicated anytime soon. The C800G uses the same capsule design as the Neumann K67 large diaphragm condenser microphone, providing silky, brilliant quality without a hint of harshness.

When was the Sony c800 made
The WA‑8000 uses a French military NOS 6AU6, while elsewhere the device uses a Lundahl-made replica of the transformer used in the original C800G, a K67-style capsule (again similar to the original) and a 7-pin XLR cable from Gotham Swiss. In an ideal world, I could tell you how the WA‑8000 was compared directly to the original, but like most SOS readers, I don’t have a C800G in my microphone collection. CC

The appearance wasn’t a problem and apart from the price, the most distinctive feature of the C800G is the large heatsink that sticks out from the back of the microphone.
