Get Pristine Sound For A Wide Range Of Uses With The AKG C414 XLII Reference Multi Pattern Condenser Microphone

The AKG C414 XLII multi-pattern condenser microphone offers a choice of nine polar patterns for the perfect sonic capture for every application. A peak hold LED displays even the shortest overload peaks. For live-sound applications and permanent installations, all controls can easily be disabled for trouble-free use.

The C414 XLII version differs from the C414 XLS version in one major respect; the capsule. The C414 XLII's slight presence boost and impressive spatial reproduction are both similar to the legendary AKG C12 microphone from 1953.

The C414 XLII delivers the sonic character of the famous AKG C12 with astounding sound quality for lead vocals and solo instruments.
