AKG C1000 S Microphone For £79!

AKG C1000S Offer

One incredible deal on the AKG C1000 S while stocks last. The C1000S is a the choice of countless pro sound engineers, almost as common a sight in mic flight cases as the SM57. Cymbals, acoustics or cellos, the C1000 is perfect in the usual condenser roles. Being battery powered also means you don't need to worry about being caught without Phantom Power at the gig.

It's not just live sound where the C1000 S excels however, recording engineer Andy Hong swears by it for recording electric guitar. It's his first choice each and every time. Speaking in his AKG C1000S revew.
"A guitar track recorded with the C-1000S measuring lower in peak and average levels will have higher perceived volume, more presence, and less mud (to get in the way of drums, bass guitar, and vocals) than a guitar track recorded with another mic at higher levels. In other words, guitars recorded with the C-1000S — once they’re mixed in with the rest of the instruments — sound bigger than guitars recorded with other mics."

Another big fan of this versatile mic is Sufjan Stevens, it was one of only two mics he used to record his album Illinois. Without any real recording experience he achieved incredibly professional results.

"Sufjan Stevens is awesome and punk.

You might not know it by listening to his albums - they're feats of orchestration, arrangement and craft that have the power to sweep you right the eff up in a majestic way, but he's a total recording rebel
, Tape Op style." - Tape Op Magazine

So yeah, get cracking and start recording your own Top Ten albums with this gem of a mic available for £79.
