At a moment in time when quality audio is becoming more and more affordable, AKG Acoustics brings to the project and studio home markets another unique and cost-effective tool to ensure the finest audio possible. The new AKG C 2000B condenser microphone was developed for recording and sound reinforcement applications, and its affordable price makes it a useful and reliable addition to any microphone collection.
The AKG C 2000B is designed with versatility in mind, able to work equally well in large and small recording environments, and offering a slew of features, that provide project studio engineers and home studio enthusiasts the same flexibility and quality that professional recording engineers have come to expect from AKG Acoustics. These include a preset cardioid polar pattern, high sensitivity and low self-noise, as well as a very smooth frequency response.
The C 2000B comes complete with the extras that make it not just a microphone, but a solution, such as a professional AKG SA41 stand adapter and optional H100 spider shock mount system, which make the C 2000B perfect for live sound or recording applications.
A switchable 10-dB pad prevents distortion from transients such as percussion instruments. This can be achieved while still preserving the timbre of the instrument or amplifier because the C 2000B's frequency response goes down to an amazing 10 Hz. For vocals, the AKG C 2000B provides a switchable bass rolloff filter, which compensates for proximity effect when close-mic'ing singers. And the C 2000B's cardioid polar pattern ensures capturing the intended source and rejecting extraneous sounds. The AKG C 2000B delivers an extremely flat frequency response with a slight high frequency boost that adds clarity and compensates for HF loss in far-mic'ing applications.
The modern design of the AKG C 2000B features a high proportion of wire mesh to emphasize the microphone's acoustical traits. The microphone is housed in an all-metal casing, finished in silver gray with a red decorative ring
The new AKG C 2000B condenser microphone offers all this and more, at an unprecedented price /performance level. The C 2000B has a professional user's net price of just $378.00. As the project studio and home recording markets head into the 21st century, they continue to look to AKG for answers like the C 2000B.
