AKG D 202


Microphone Description

Brand: AKG
Model: D 202

A classic and easily identifiable design that uses twin dynamic capsules to sense high and low frequency audio. A cross-over network is used to merge the two signals. Unusually the LF entry point is at the base of the stem and there is a rear wind shielding grid as well as the more obvious sintered bronze front grille. The back-to-front ratio of 20dB is substantially constant and the microphone does not suffer proximity effect. D202 E1, ES, Studio versions and the related D222 exist. Though long unavailable these microphones still have many devotees, particularly for percussion. Suffix C (as opposed to E) had DIN connectors.
