Need a pair of high-performance condenser microphones for vocals? Check out this matched pair of AKG C414 XLII mics. You can use them on a variety of sound sources, but they do an especially good job of capturing the detail and nuance of the human voice. The C414 XLII's sonic signature is modeled after AKG's famous vintage C12 model.
Nine selectable pickup patterns accommodate a wide variety of applications, including close-up and distance miking. Three switchable bass cut filters and three pre-attenuation levels let you adjust for different sound sources and recording situations. For live concert use, all controls can be disabled easily so settings can't be changed accidentally.
The C414 XLII mic has a wide dynamic range, and features a large 1" diaphragm that can deliver finely detailed sound. A 20 dB attenuation switch lets the C414 handle high sound pressure levels, so you can use use it to close-mic drum kits, guitar amps and brass instruments.
The microphone pair comes with two windscreens and pop filters for vocal recordings, and two spider-type shock mounts. You also get a stereo mounting bar, making it easy to use the mics in tandem. And all of this gear fits in the included foam-cushioned aluminum carry case.
