New Version Of AKG Condenser Available


AKG and UK distributor Sound Technology have announced shipping of the new mk IV version of the AKG C1000 S small diaphragm condenser microphone. They say that this 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 us, "AKG's C1000 S is a completely efficient workhorse in the engineer's rig that will provide 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."

AKG tells us that the nearly indestructible condenser has a sturdy metal chassis and specialised mic clip to keep the units securely attached to stands and that its 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.

Pricing and Availability:

The AKG C1000 S mk IV is available now priced at £179 RRP inc VAT.
