    Great All-Purpose Microphone

    I just purchased these last week to upgrade the Peavey microphones in my PA system, and spent the weekend A/B testing them against my MXL909 condensor that I use in recording.
    Although the AKG website recommends this microphone for back-up vocals and not lead vocals, I can say it does very well with lead vocals or vocals in harmony group settings [think the Lettermen, CSN, Kingston Trio, Statler Brothers, Oak Ridge Boys].
    This also outperformed my MXL in recording. It produces a very clean even signal across it's frequency range. And because it is a dynamic microphone instead of a condensor , it doesn't require phantom power.
    I even borrowed a Shure SM58 to compare it with and it outperformed the SM58 for evenness of response and clean reproduction of sound.
    AKG has a well-earned rep for quality products at reasonable prices and this does not disappoint.
    I'd recommend them to anyone seeking a high quality dynamic microphone and doesn't have a lot of money to spend. Even if one does have the money for higher priced mics--I'd recommend these, and with the money saved, take the spouse or significant other out for an evening.

    We have a radio show and sound quality is very important. We purchased 1 and loved it so much a couple of days later we purchase a another one. Wonderful microphone thank you Sweetwater for your prompt delivery and wonderful customer service.

    Good for the money

    AKG fanatic. They've been my mic of choice since 1970. I still have two of my originals from back then.

    Wanted a few mics with switches that I could use when all of our singers are present.

    Not in the same league as the D5s, but still a good value. Have two of these, two D5s, a 535, two I don't remember whats from 1970, and a new C4000B. (I do have 3 Blue mics, and one Audio-Technica).

    As always, Stuart's the man.

    Very UnderRated BARGAIN SOUND

    IF this mic were 90 dollars, it can sell on merit of sound
    for LIVE and RECORDING too !
    we like it better than sm 57 or sm 58 for many situations.

    we have successfully recorded ( 2 feet away ! ) viola and violins
    and even brass and woodwinds with this thing !
    for female and male vocals too !

    the akg D5 is even better...but after that, for example
    the akg d7, becomes diminishing returns, unless u got a really clean
    signal chain....

    AKG is one of the best bargains out there...
    and it starts with this low price P 3 !!!
    u wont sell it , thats for sure, even if you got far more expensive mics,
    bec this mic has its place in warmth

    enjoy the music ! dont get toooo serious !
