The P170 is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone for recording of overheads, percussion, acoustic guitars and other strings. Its lightweight 1/2-inch true condenser transducer diaphragm delivers outstanding clarity and transient response. The P170 utilizes the experience of sound engineers from around the world and is considered an affordable alternative to the legendary AKG C451 B.

What the Pro’s are Saying

Sound on Sound:

Sound on Sound:

“Given the price and build quality, the Perception works well as a general purpose, cardioid pattern, small diaphragm mic, and although more money will buy you greater accuracy, there's certainly no excuse not to make excellent recordings with this mic.”
