Two mics in one.

The CS Series mic features both the CS1 (vocal) and CS2 (instrument) selectable mic elements, as well as a handheld base. Both neodymium capsules offer a supercardiod pickup pattern, but are further designed to support completely different miking applications. The base’s threaded twist-off construction makes it both quick and easy to change capsules and miking techniques. The base also features a gold-plated XLR jack (mic cable not included) for strong connectivity.

CS Series Mic VocalsCapturing vocals.

The CS1 Vocal Microphone is optimized for live performance applications, perfect for musicians, front-of-house professionals and more. Its rounded grill offers the ideal separation between the capsule and performer for exceptional vocal clarity and minimal handling noise. In addition, the CS1’s pickup pattern provides excellent feedback rejection, avoiding unwanted noise and highlighting only your performance. And with a wide 60Hz–18kHz frequency response and high SPL handling, the CS1 can capture the most dynamic of voices with ease.

Miking instruments.

Specifically tuned for drums, guitar cabinets, brass and other preferred instruments, use the CS2 Instrument Microphone is ideal for miking your favorite instruments. The capsule’s flat high carbon steel grill allows for a wide frequency response on the low end (50Hz–18kHz), which is essential to the sound characteristics of most instruments. It also features a tighter polar pattern for greater isolation from the sound source. This, along with maximum SPL handling, makes the CS2 ideal for close miking aggressive instrument tones such as drums and brass without overload.

Samson’s CS Series Microphone is an innovative design that redefines quality and convenience. Whether you’re miking a vocal performance or your favorite instrument, it provides superior sound and versatility. Just twist, switch and go!

The terms Omni-directional---uni-directional---
cardioid--& super cardiod refer to the polar pattern.
Basically--if you are looking at the microphone as it is laying on it's side,the ploar pattern shows how tight the pattern is and how much unwanted sound is rejected.
The super cardioid is the tightest and the cardioid is next.
Some of the cardioids are very close in pattern to the supercardioid mics.
If you are a vocalist and are concerned about quality,then I recommend the following mics:
1---Samson CO5 CL--Cardioid-condenser--40-16k--about $70. This is the best bang for the buck
