Perfect for recording and acoustic instrument stage reinforcement.

The AKG C 1000 S Condenser Mic is an excellent vocal mic. It works well even from a distance, making it ideal for recording choirs and other live music ensembles. Outstanding performance when used for instruments and ideal for home recording applications.

A special converter (PPC 1000) turns the microphone characteristics from cardioid to hypercardioid if it is mounted on the mic top. The new PB 1000 Presence Boost adapter provides an additional 5dB high-frequency peak in the cardioid mode, adding brilliance in the 5 to 9kHz range. Operates on either phantom power or standard 9V battery, and an LED has been added for low-battery warning. The C 1000 S can also be used for a variety of studio applications.

supreme and versatile

By Andrew j

from midwest

Comments about AKG C 1000 S Condenser Microphone:

I have tested numerous microphones. I chose the C1000S because it was the most affordable model for a poor road musician like myself and it was said to be the most versatile microphone in existence. I'd trade any of my "live show" horns for a C1000S because the mics sound that good. They lean towards a bright tone, but they have enough mid and low to retain the original crisp and clear sound of my horn both in the studio and on the gig. I've been using the C1000 for around 9 months now and never has it failed me; not once. The adapters that come with it are SO handy for different applications, and the 9V phantom power backup has been used numerous times. The windscreen is just icing on the cake, and the stand clamp that comes with it fits like a glove. Five stars and still impressing.

Use it as a "shotgun"!

By Bob Downing

from Chicago, IL

Comments about AKG C 1000 S Condenser Microphone:

I work in news and use the C1000s as a "shotgun" mic when I use the hypercardioid attachment. You don't get the "reach" of a true shotgun like the 416 but in 90% of my work I do not need to go deep and I would rather have the great frequency response and richness of the vocals. I also like the fact that in other applications (like recording music while on the job) it is OUTSTANDING! I have been given "atta boy" for great sound in a situation where most soundpersons would use a conventional shotgun.
