Product Description

Successor to the Famous C414 B-TL II, AKG Brings You the C414 XLII!
The C414 XLII shows the unique sonic signature of the highly sought after AKG C12 which enables lead vocals and solo instruments to be placed even in a dense mix. The unrivalled up-front sound is also well-known for distant miking applications like classic music recording or drum ambience miking.

Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Extremely well made but handle with care. This is a wonderful mic and should be treated as a fine instrument as all mics of this quality.
Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Sonic quality on an acoustic guitar is perfect! on most vocals it's great, but not too close. Awesome for AB stereo with a cardioid mic. Love the patterns. Try them all. You'll be suprised.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Read the pictures and press the buttons! how easy is that! Place the mic in position, turn on the phanthom power and start recording. Easy as pie! American Pie at that. No Jap or Chineese junk here!
Sound
How is the tone?
Great for Vocals and acoustic instruments. also for cymbals and room stereo. Use a decent pre amp to get the full tonal range this mic is capable of.
