Northridge, CA (April 17, 2009)–AKG has unveiled its redesigned C 3000 condenser microphone, targeted for recording and live applications.
The new version maintains the characteristics of the C 3000; however, a new finish showcases the company’s corporate design.
Commenting on the C 3000 is product marketing manager for recording and broadcast at AKG, Thomas Stubics: “Since 1993, the C 3000 has become a standard for a wide range of applications. The only thing our customers wanted us to change was the appearance, so we included AKG’s new corporate design, which has also been included on recently launched products like the D 5 handheld vocal mic and the K 702 Reference Class headphones.”
The C 3000 features a 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, low noise electronics, high SPL capability and an internal shock mount, which reportedly reduces handling noise from mic stands or cables. The switchable 10 dB pre-attenuation increase in SPL capability by 10 dB and accommodates loud instruments and amplifiers. According to AKG, the switchable, first-order 500 Hz low-frequency filter “eliminates the proximity effect for close-miking.” The standard accessories are a metal carrying case and a spider-type shock mount.
