Every musician knows there are a few mics that have become legendary because of their outstanding performance as well as widespread use by top professionals. Certainly among the elite
AKG C 414 Microphone
microphone manufacturers is AKG Acoustics. And their best selling mic? The C414!

What's so special about this mic (other than the fact that it's been used on countless top-selling albums and singles over the past two decades, of course)? Simple: It sounds great for vocals, on acoustic and electric guitars, miking pianos, brass and string sections, solo acoustic instruments... well, you name it, this mic does it. Featuring four polar patterns (omni, cardioid, hypercardioid and Figure 8), bass cut filter and selectable -10 and -20 dB pre-attenuation, plus dual 1" gold-sputtered large diaphragm design, the mic is available in two configurations, the C414 B/ULS and transformerless C414 B/TL II. Retail prices start at $1249 for the B/ULS.

Of course, you get a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, but that only tells part of the story. There's a sweetness to the sound of this mic that's hard to define, but when you hear it, well, you'll know what we're talking about. Yet unlike some other high-end mics, the 414 is surprisingly rugged thanks to its all metal design.

If you can only have one really great mic in your studio, doesn't it make sense that it's an AKG C414? Hey, it will make even more sense when you call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer and get our special low (and we mean really low) price on this incredible mic.
