The higher end 251 is treasured by users for its extraordinary up close cardioid performance on premier voices and its distance performance on piano, ensembles, and orchestras. Many customers have asked for a less expensive cardioid-only version of the 251 and we're happy to deliver it now as the model 241 mic!
The 241's primary use will undoubtedly be female / male vocals. Use a pop filter and get up close for that intimate “big vocal” sound. A few inches away, the proximity effect recedes and the mic gets flatter in response. At distance, the 241 is amazing on instruments and ensembles. In front of a drum set it sounds like you are standing there; on stringed instruments it captures the transients and complex harmonic structure that spell the difference between
