Capture the Nuances that Make a Great Performance!
At Sweetwater, we have microphones to handle even the most specialized applications. The Neumann KM 184 is the perfect example. Need a microphone to record percussion, cymbals or brass instruments? The KM 184 is capable of handling high sound pressure levels with ease - as high as 138dB before overloading. But it's also extremely quiet, making it an excellent choice for capturing the subtle nuances of acoustic guitars and orchestral instruments. And you get that classic Neumann sound!
Neumann KM 184 Condenser Microphone Features:
