Based acoustically on the AKG Blue Line Series, the newest addition to AKG’s product line-up, the Architectural Microphone Series (AMS), presents a new wave of customizable possibilities in microphones. AMS was unveiled at 2009 InfoComm in Orlando.
AMS allows users to customize the microphone by easily adjusting the length of the gooseneck module as well as selecting various designs for the shape of the capsule housing unit.
The self-designed microphone can be personalized with any color as well as a shiny gold, chrome or a cool nickel finish for professional settings. In total, the entire microphone series are available in more than 6,840 customizable settings.
Premium studio microphones, like the AMS, are characterized by a very flat frequency response, low self-noise and a consistent polar pattern. Three precision transducers make up AMS, all with different polar patterns, including a cardioid, an omni-directional and a hyper-cardioid.
Beside the three different polar patterns to match different room acoustics, the AMS showcases a diverse range of capabilities, such as flat frequency response for acoustic performance, gold sputtered ultra-low mass diaphragms, switchable bass cut filter and preattenuation pad. The series also offers an extremely high resistance to RF interference for extended versatility.
Adding on to the extraordinary attributes of the AMS, the mics are equipped with a bayonet coupling system with self-cleaning contacts and the Blue Line bayonet coupling system enables the capsules to be easily change.
With the installation of any of the microphones in the AMS, different mounting modules are available, including a wide range of specialized mounting accessories specifically dedicated to making the installation easy and can bring the microphone into place. Blended rubber material and high mechanical damping in the shock mounts help to eliminate any mechanical vibrations.
