WNAMM13: AKG Updates The C1000 S


AKG has released its updated C1000 S multipurpose condenser microphone. They say that the high-performance small-diaphragm microphone is ideally suited for recording and live sound applications for drum overheads, pianos and acoustic instruments.

Thomas Umbauer, Product manager PPA, AKG, told Sonic State, "AKG's C1000 S is an efficient workhorse in the engineer's rig that provides high-quality sound the audio industry has expected from AKG over the past 65 years. We've put the C1000 S through rigorous testing in multiple scenarios and added more clever features such as the humidity proof gold capsule housing and gold plated XLR-pins. The microphone can take a beating on tour and still consistently provide perfect sound during any event."


Here's what AKG has to say about the new version:

The nearly indestructible condenser has a sturdy metal chassis and specialized mic clip to keep the units securely attached to stands. The C1000 S's gold capsule and XLR plugs make it humidity-proof for all environments.

Rather than relying on an expensive 9V block battery, the C1000 S mk IV now runs on two AA batteries at 120h and offers two gain settings, three frequency settings and two polar patters: cardioid and hypercardioid. For mobile broadcast use and interview situations, C1000 S offers more versatility than ever before.


Pricing and Availability:

The AKG C1000S mk4 will ship in Q1 2013 at a price to be confirmed.
