An aesthetically-pleasing redesign of a 15-year-old studio standard.

Since its introduction in 1993, AKG's C 3000 recording microphone has become a standard for a wide range of both studio and onstage applications. The redesigned C 3000 is a cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing product update which maintains the popular characteristics of the original C 3000, but with a sleek-and-classy finish showcasing AKG's corporate design. The AKG microphone is a great selection for both recording and live sound applications where maximum sound quality and robustness are a must, and the competitive price makes the C 3000 recording mic a must-have.

The AKG C 3000 microphone features a cardioid pickup pattern, a 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response, low-noise electronics, high-SPL capability, and an internal shockmount, which drastically reduces the mic's handling noise from mic stands or cables. The switchable 10dB preattenuation pad increases the SPL capability by 10dB and accommodates loud instruments like brass instruments or guitar amplifiers with ease. The AKG microphone's switchable first-order 500Hz low frequency filter eliminates the proximity effect for close-miking. The standard included accessories are a metal carrying case and a spider-type shock mount.

Proven for more than 15 years and affordably priced, the AKG C 3000 microphone is an excellent choice for every high-quality recording or demanding live sound application.
