AKG announced the release of the redesigned C 3000 condenser microphone, which maintains the popular performance characteristics of the original but with a new sleek finish.
“Since 1993, the C 3000 has become a standard for a wide range of applications,” states Thomas Stubics, Product Marketing Manager for Recording and Broadcast at AKG. “The only thing our customer wanted us to change was the appearance so we included AKG’s new Corporate Design, which has also been included on recently launched products like the proven D 5 hand-held vocal mic and the brand-new K 702 Reference Class headphones.”
The C 3000 features a 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response, low noise electronics, high SPL capability and an internal shock mount, which drastically reduces handling noise from mic stands or cables. The switchable 10dB preattenuation increase in SPL capability by 10 dB and accommodates loud instruments and amplifiers with ease.
The switchable first-order 500Hz low frequency filter eliminates the proximity effect for close-miking. The standard accessories are a metal carrying case and a spider-type shock mount.
