Microphone Description

Brand: AKG
Model: C 414 B-Xlii

The C 414B-XLii is a reworking of the legendary C414 preserving the sonic character and essential shape but adding an improved shock mount, new switching functions and a more modern internal design. A status LED shows the selected polar pattern and also capsule overload. Three pad settings and three bass-cut filters are also given LED indication and there is provision for remote switching. Considerable care has been taken to minimize humidity problems by using low-impedance switching. The 414B-XLii has a distinct timbre and is recommended for use with vocals and as a distant instrument microphone.
