A tradition of excellence
Over sixty-five years ago, AKG began making microphones that were quickly embraced for their exceptional quality. Today, AKG's emphasis on continuous innovation keeps them in the forefront of microphone technology. If sound quality is your top priority, AKG microphones can make the difference between a good show and a great show.
Built like a tank
Live gigs can be rough on your equipment, so you need a versatile microphone that can take a beating gracefully. The D40 dynamic microphone sports a solid, all-metal body and outer grille that protect its inner works, while its shock-absorbing inner grille shields the transducer against physical damage and high sound pressure levels. If you're playing an outdoor venue, wind noise won't be a concern thanks to the D40's built-in pop filter.
Jack of all trades
This unidirectional dynamic microphone was designed to perform with a wide variety of instruments. Its integrated stand adapter offers a 135º swivel range that allows for precise mic alignment, and you can use the included H440 mounting bracket to mount the D40 directly on a drum shell. This versatile mic can handle high sound pressure levels, so it's perfect for use on percussion, wind instruments, and guitar amps.
