MESSE09: AKG Redesigns C3000



AKG have announced the release of the redesigned C 3000 condenser microphone which they say is suitable for every recording or live application. Here's what they have to say about it...
The cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing C 3000 microphone from AKG has been proven as a trusty and reliable workhorse for more that 15 years. The new C 3000 maintains the popular characteristics of the C 3000, however a new sleek and classy finish showcases AKG's new Corporate Design. It is a great selection for both recording and live sound applications, where maximum sound quality and robustness are a must, and the competitive price makes the C 3000 a must-have.
Commenting on the redesigned C 3000 is Product Marketing Manager for Recording and Broadcast at AKG, Thomas Stubics. "Since 1993, the C 3000 has become a standard for a wide range of applications." Stubics continues, "The only thing our customer wanted us to change was the appearance so we included AKG's new Corporate Design, which has also been included on recently launched products like the proven D 5 hand-held vocal mic and the brand-new K 702 Reference Class headphones."
The C 3000 features a 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response, low noise electronics, high SPL capability and an internal shock mount, which drastically reduces handling noise from mic stands or cables. The switchable 10dB preattenuation increase in SPL capability by 10 dB and accommodates loud instruments and amplifiers with ease. The switchable first-order 500Hz low frequency filter eliminates the proximity effect for close-miking. The standard accessories are a metal carrying case and a spider-type shock mount.
Proven for more than 15 years and affordably priced, the C 3000 is an excellent choice for every high quality recording or demanding live sound application.
