AKG have announced the new D 4 stage microphone. They say that the new D 4 dynamic microphone’s rugged all-metal body easily withstands the rigors of active, onstage live performance, providing outstanding sound quality and durability on drums, percussion instruments, wind instruments and guitar amps.
Featuring their patented Varimotion diaphragm technology, AKG tell us the D 4 is capable of being fine-tuned with no extra tuning resonators. With custom built capsule mounting, a spring steel wire-mesh grill and an all-metal body, the D 4 is a durable and reliable microphone solution for the active demands of live musicians. Additionally, the highly versatile D 4 comes equipped with an integrated stand adapter as well as a mounting bracket, making the unit easily adaptable for almost any instrument including drums, percussion, wind instruments and guitar amps.
Thomas Umbauer, Product Manager, AKG Acoustics, told us, “Offering the latest advancements in microphone diaphragm technology, combined with a sturdy physical design, the D 4 stage microphone was designed with the live musician in mind. The capsule is positioned right under the wire-mesh grill for the ultimate sound pressure levels and the rugged all-metal body provides the necessary durability required of on stage equipment.”
