The large diaphragm of the AKG Perception 220 condenser mic gives lead vocals, acoustic guitar and brass instruments a warm, clear sound. The mic's integrated pop filter helps optimize vocal recording. A rugged all-metal body gives the microphone added durability.
The switchable bass-cut filter minimizes rumble and low-end noise. The 220 can handle sound pressure levels of up to 155 dB, letting you close-mike really loud sound sources — like drums or amps.

Why a condenser mic?
Need to pull the full harmonic complexity from a solo cello? Want to make the most of that magnificent German studio grand piano you spent way too much for? Or maybe you understand that the magic of swing comes from the insistent ping of a deftly controlled ride cymbal, and you're determined to capture it in glorious detail. You'll likely end up with a condenser mic; these simply designed, yet incredibly precise, recording instruments are far more responsive to sonic vibration than their "dynamic" cousins (who, with some exceptions, are more appropriate for PA systems). Whatever your hi-fi recording needs, there's a condenser mic out there with your name on it.
