If you're looking for microphone that delivers Sonic character and is able to give beautiful detailed recordings of lead vocals and solo instruments, then the AKG C214 could be the microphone for you.
The AKG C214 is a cost effective alternative to the revolutionary AKG C414 and is capable of handling the rigors of high-pressure sound, such as amplified guitars, with sensitivity perfect for voice and orchestral instruments as well. The AKG C214 boasts the highest dynamic range in its class and features a low cut switch enabling operation in low phantom power voltages from 12 to 48 volts.
Additional features include 156 dB SPL capability, an integrated suspension, double mesh grill and high RF immunity. The circuitry in the C 214 provides maximum SPL capability with minimum noise and the XLR-type output connector offers loss-free signals.
Commenting on the C 214 is Grammy Award Nominee, Hal Winer, owner of BiCoastal Music. "I've been using the C 214’s regularly and I absolutely love them! I've used them for a wide range of recording applications and I find them especially great for jazz kick drum. It's been very difficult to find a microphone to represent that small and tight sound that a jazz kick has and the C214 is absolutely the best microphone I’ve ever used in that application. Piano, voice and guitar amp applications have been equally successful."
Hal Winer has produced records for world-renowned artists including Rob Thomas, Björk, Joe Lynn Turner, Tony Levin, John Patitucci and Mike Stern. "They have become my ‘go to’ microphone for almost everything and I keep them mounted on stands for regular use," said Winer.
Accompanying a pair of AKG C214’s, the Stereo Set includes spider-type shock mounts, stand adapters, windscreens, and a stereo pair certificate for authenticity.
