This Affordable Mic Makes Capturing Toms Easy!

If you're looking for an inexpensive way to faithfully capture toms, percussion, guitar amps, or other instruments, AKG's P 4 cardioid dynamic microphones are your answer. These quality instrument microphones are so affordable that you can pick up three or four of them for the same price as a single "professional" studio mic. P 4s are tuned to provide a neutral and flat response to your instruments, allowing you to capture their natural sound. An integrated stand adapter and an external drum-mounting bracket make it simple to place P 4s on toms and other drums. And since P 4s are made with tough all-metal bodies, they can easily shrug off an occasional whack with a stray stick.

AKG P4 - Great Product and Great Value

These mics are great. Have been looking for a quality set of mics for my drum kit for a while. Did some reseach and watched some videos and bought two for my toms. I was very pleased the overall sound, I had to eq the mics very little. The mounts that come with the mics worked wonderful, I was able to mount the mics so they weren't in the way and are fairly simple to use. I like the mics and mounts so well that I have purchased two more and replace the tried and true sm57 on my snare and was extremeley please. For the quality, ease of mic placement and the the price, did I mention the price, you can not go wrong.

Great Mic for the Money

This mic delivers everything that it promises—good sound quality, affordability, and the build quality is excellent. I use it to mic a small amp in my home studio, and it just a solid performer. Overall, it's a really nice value.
