Affordable Condenser Mic

Designed for a wide range of applications ranging from vocals and live sound to recording and studio use, AKG say that their Light Condenser Premium Vocal Microphone is an affordable acquisition for any musician. Here's the rest of what they have to say in their press release...
The professional condenser vocal microphone produces outstanding performance through the loudest mix or on any stage. Its cardioid polar pattern ensures maximum gain before feedback and has been optimized for use with in-ear monitor systems. Custom-designed with piano black painting we want to address the aesthetic preferences of special performances with this slim line premium condenser microphone.
Delivering an extremely accurate, detailed and natural sound, the AKG LC features an XLR connector module with 24-carat gold plated pins for optimized connectivity, as well as resistance to corrosion and humidity. Additionally, the LC features a spring steel wire-mesh grill for extreme ruggedness offering reliable control of pops and wind noise while an artist is on stage.
The resulting LC microphone features a frequency range of 60 to 20,000 Hz and premium 24-carat gold plated transducer case for optimum conductivity. Not only is the sonic quality of the microphone aimed at complementing each voice, so too is the aesthetic design of the LC. Offering a slender and elegant silhouette, the lightweight unit has a subtle piano black finish to visually complement any performance.
Commenting on the versatility of the microphone, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management for AKG, Alfred Reinprecht states, "The LC microphone from AKG is designed for every individual user to create their own individual sound in a range of different applications. It is aesthetically pleasing and produces outstanding sound quality despite the harshest stages conditions."
