AKG has released an updated version of the C1000 S multipurpose condenser microphone, a small-diaphragm model suited for recording and live sound applications for drum overheads, pianos and acoustic instruments.
The C1000 S has a sturdy metal chassis and specialized mic clip to keep the units securely attached to stands. A gold capsule and XLR plugs make it humidity-proof for all environments.
Rather than relying on a 9-volt block battery, the C1000 S now runs on two AA batteries at 120h and offers two gain settings, three frequency settings and two polar patters: cardioid and hypercardioid.
“AKG’s C1000 S is a completely efficient workhorse in the engineer’s rig that will provide high-quality sound the audio industry has expected from AKG over the past 65 years,” states Thomas Umbauer, product manager PPA, AKG. “We’ve put the C1000 S through rigorous testing in multiple scenarios and added more clever features such as the humidity proof gold capsule housing and gold plated XLR-pins.
“The microphone can take a beating on tour and still consistently provide perfect sound during any event.”
