The Swiss Army Knife of microphones
This updated version AKG C1000 S multipurpose small-diaphragm condenser microphone is extremely popular for its versatility.
It is suitable for recording and live-sound applications as well as for ENG/EFP and video productions. Its gold sputtered capsule housing makes the microphone extremely rugged against humidity.
If no phantom power is available, the AKG C1000 S can be powered by two standard AA batteries for up to 120 hours.
More versatile than ever before, the new C1000 S features a bass-cut switch and a switchable -10 dB pad. The polar pattern can quickly be switched from cardioid to hyper-cardioid. Three different frequency settings are adding more clarity to speech and instrument sounds.
