Product Description

The AKG C516ML is a lightweight cardioid miniature microphone for use on accordions, guitar speakers, piano and keyboard/organ cabinets.
The included screws and double-sided, solvent-free adhesive pads make it easy to install the microphone on your instrument or amp exactly where you need it. Using two C516ML (one on the bass and one on the treble side) and an optional B 29 L battery power supply is an ideal way to mic up an accordion. The C516ML is the only version available and can be used with the B29L battery power supply, AKG WMS Series bodypack transmitters, or the MPA VL adapter for external phantom powering. The unique adapter plate A 400 allows easy attachment of the AKG pocket transmitters.

Ease of Use
Excellent Bodhran Mic
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The item is made quite well, I'll let you know if it breaks.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
I have a 3 for features because I had to modify the mic so that it would fit on my Bodhran. I had to cut the rubber shockmount so that I could rotate the mic head to point the right direction for my mount. Easy enough, but it would be nice if they made the clip adjustable so you could rotate it to decide which way the mic points after mounting.
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?
Very easy to use, you need to make sure you get the adaptor if you are plugging directly into a mixing board.
How is the tone?
Sounds fantastic, best mic I can think of for mounting on a Bodhran.
