AKG C480B Preamp + CK61 Cardioid Capsule !!
In the sound of the C480 Condenser you'll hear ample evidence of the time-proven characteristics of some of the recording world's greatest and most popular microphones. The warmth, presence and "feel" that make a great performance are all there, waiting to add their unique touch to your recordings. Backing up these classic qualities are technological standards that come right from the cutting-edge of today's music gear. Features include a superb preamp with a built-in, four-position switch: two positions give you a bass-cut filter (at 75 and 150Hz) with different roll-off slopes, while another position selects a -10dB pad, added after the input stage of the microphone, to ensure performance at spec sound pressure levels up to 144dB. Ultra-low self-noise and exceptionally high overload characteristics allow a dynamic range specification of over 120dB and a specially designed output stage will drive all types of loads likely to be encountered in professional work, including using excessively long cables, without any noticeable signal degradation.
A versatile recording mic
The C480B also might be one of the most versatile recording tools you've ever worked with. It's modular design lets you add or change capsules for different recording directions: cardioid, hypercardioid, omnidirectional, and diffuse field omnidirectional. Frequency responses of all capsules are exceptionally flat, and offer very neutral presentations of off-axis material.
