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.
 
AKG C414 XL II Condenser Microphone Features

  • Nine selectable pickup patterns provide the perfect setting for any application
  • Lock Mode: all controls can be disabled easily for trouble-free use
  • Peak Hold LED even detects shortest overload peaks
  • Incredible Dynamic Range of 152 dB
  • Three switchable different bass cut filters and three pre-attenuation levels
  • Leading-edge technology and state-of-the-art components
    • Ensures shortest signal path and extra protection against moisture
  • Includes case, pop filter, windscreen and spider-type shock mount
  • Designed, Engineered and Built in Vienna, Austria
The AKG C414 XLII offers nine pickup patterns which enable you to choose the perfect setting for every application. For live-sound applications and permanent installations all controls can be disabled easily for trouble-free use. A Peak Hold LED displays even shortest overload peaks.

The XLII version differs from the XLS version in one major respect - the capsule. Both, the slight presence boost and the impressive spatial reproduction is similar to the legendary C12 microphones.

Product Review

When researching on the forums you will here people talk a lot of crap about this mic. But I used a pair at work (live sound) to mic an upright and I loved the results. I decided to trust my ears and not the forums. I was not disappointed! It is a true workhorse. In the few weeks I've had it I've used it on Cello Voice and Percussion with astounding results all around. The versatility and ease of use inspire creativity in the moment. I tried it on a cello in a beautiful sounding church and going from close mic'ing in Cardiod to far away in Omni mode for that awesome real reverb was as easy as pressing a button, literally. While it is not a perfect mic and you can certainly buy specific mics for certain purposes at a higher price, this mic will be with you your whole career. My only regret is not getting a pair!

Well worth the money

Product Review

Only set back is that I wasn’t able to purchase a matched pair. Still, the mics are phenomenal for vocals, overheads, acoustic guitar, pretty much anything.

"Smooth as butter"

Product Review

Paired with a good preamp..... Trident, Daking or Neve this mic sounds great. Used on vocals, acoustic guitars, electric guitars or any string instrument. It is one of the most used vocal mics on thousands of albums. Pick one up. You won't regret it.

No wonder....

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.

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.

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!

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.
