The P220 is a large-diaphragm true condenser microphone offering a warm and clear sound for lead vocals, acoustic guitar and brass instruments. A switchable bass-cut filter and attenuation pad make it perfectly suited for use on loud sound sources with sound pressure levels up to 155dB SPL. The rugged and roadworthy design also makes the P220 a perfect choice for on-stage applications. The P220 represents the most popular and successful microphone within the actual Project Studio Line. It comes complete with a spider-type shock mount in an aluminum carrying case.

P220 is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for the project studio I've owned a P220 for some years. Was very impressed with the quality from the start. I use the mic for several applications, vocals, acoustic guitars and room mic'ing. It has a wonderful sound on all, and never lets me down.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I bought the P220 a couple of months ago. While it does a perfect job on acoustic guitars, it has a tendency to pick up sounds from right behind the mic. When trying to record a small tube amp (8 inches away) it also picks up the acoustic sounds from the solid body electric guitar 12 feet behind it(!). After contacting AKG they said it might be a faulty capsule, but after comparing two P220’s at the store - they were exactly the same. I updated AKG support about the finding but got no response. Bottom line - sounds great, not very practical.
