AKG C1000S cardioid/hypercardioid condenser


Robust microphone powered via phantom power or internal 9V battery. Ideal for drum overhead use, acoustic instruments, recording choirs and ensembles (in pairs), and speech. The pickup pattern can be adjusted from cardiod to hypercardioid with the PPC1000 shield mounted on the capsule.

On/Off switch. Studio quality even when powered by a battery.
Excellent vocal microphone works perfectly even from a greater distance, e.g. for picking up choirs and so on.
