Cut Through The Mix!When you're onstage with the AKG C 5, you won't have to worry about cutting through the mix. That's because AKG designed this handheld vocal condenser microphone for demanding onstage performance, with a live band behind you. The AKG C 5's cardioid pickup pattern helps it to give you a huge amount of gain before feedback — a definite plus. There's also a spring steel wire-mesh grill to stand up to plenty of use, while reliably controlling pops and wind noise when you sing into your AKG C 5 vocal condenser microphone.
AKG C 5 Vocal Condenser Microphone at a Glance:
Onstage with bands? Let the AKG C 5 help you cut through the mix.
AKG knows that demanding vocal performances onstage usually involve a lot of other instruments you're trying to soar above. That's why they designed the AKG C 5 vocal condenser microphone to help you cut through even the loudest mix, while keeping your tone intact.
Cardioid polar pattern helps give you the maximum gain before feedback
Feedback is a troubling onstage problem. But the AKG C 5 vocal condenser microphone's cardioid polar pickup pattern helps to avoid it. The AKG C 5 microphone picks up your voice right in front of it, while avoiding what's coming toward it from the sides and back.
Solidly built, with features to control pops, wind, and handling noise
AKG built the C 5 vocal condenser microphone to be rock solid, so it's practically as strong as your stage performances. Plus, it sports a built-in shockmount and a spring steel wire-mesh grill that pull double-duty to reduce handling noise as well as reliably control pops and wind noise.

As the new breed of metal musician, I applaude the dynamics the C 5 offers to a vocalist, whom by preference, needs a mic that can handle a large dynamic range.

I use this mic as a live vocal mic connected by a either 1 or 2 20' monster cables. The sound reproduction is flawless. I am sure to recommend this mic to any of my metal peers looking for a great live show mic.
Hey Akg, let's get a representitive on the phone and talk endorsement. Hey sweetwater, put a little extra in Chris McGown's check. He aided me in my decision making on this product. THANK YOU CHRIS! close [-]

Good Mic, but not good enough

This mic has a TON of low mids and takes EQ on almost every voice. I use it alm... read more [+]ost solely as a talkback mic. If you need a really beefy sounding mic this is it. But there are few voices that it sounds nice on. Its more friendly to female vocals. close [-]
