Great purchase

Product Review

This is one of the best mics in this price range. It has a fairly neutral and even response throughout, producing a warm tone, but it does receive upwards of 5db boost in the 7-10khz range, producing clear highs. AMS also offers one of the best prices on this product. Recommended.

Amazing quality at an awesome price!!!

Product Review

An absolute stellar piece of art. AKG did not spare any quality in producing this microphone for a variety of uses. The sound quality is amazing whether using for overheads on a drum kit combined with a D112 on the kick , for recording, or as choir mics. This has been a go to microphone for us. We current own 12. The best part is the price is extremely affordable for this piece of equipment. Pairing it with American Musical Supply easy payment plan makes if afforable for anyone who is on a budget. Awesome props to AKG and AMS!!!! We will be returning to AMS for more amazing products.
