What the Pro’s are Saying

Sound on Sound:

Sound on Sound:

“Good vocal definition. Its tonal character is obviously influenced by the broad, upper-mid presence region giving it a very slightly 'forward' quality…which would help with intelligibility when performing live.”

Recording Hacks:

Recording Hacks:

“I figured I should come clean and give away one of my recording secrets. My all time favorite guitar amp microphone is the AKG C1000S electret condenser.”

Microphone Geeks:

Microphone Geeks:

“It has a signature bright sound that creates an illusion of higher fidelity but also helps to clear up the sound in a live environment.”

Music Radar:

Music Radar:

"It's a solid choice if you make field recordings; the battery power being the essential feature, but ruggedness also being paramount. Plus the C1000 S's gold capsule and XLR plugs make it humidity-proof for all environments."

The Swiss Army Knife of microphones

The updated version of the C1000 S multipurpose small-diaphragm condenser microphone is extremely popular for its versatility. It is suitable for recording and live-sound applications as well as for ENG/EFP and video productions. Its gold sputtered capsule housing makes the microphone extremely rugged against humidity. If no phantom power is available, the C1000 S can be powered by two standard AA batteries for up to 120 hours. More versatile than ever before, the new C1000 S features a bass-cut switch and a switchable -10 dB pad. The polar pattern can quickly be switched from cardioid to hyper-cardioid. Three different frequency settings are adding more clarity to speech and instrument sounds.
