Amsterdam, The Netherlands (September 7, 2012)—AKG has updated its Project Studio Line of microphones. Originally launched in 1993, the Project Studio Line, consisting of the AKG C3000, C2000, C4000 and C4500 BC, has been refreshed with new editions. First out the gate is the C4500 BC.
“AKG’s new Project Studio Line takes a fresh look at a technology that has stayed true to the audio industry for 20 years, which is testament to the quality and reliability of our world-leading microphones,” stated Thomas Stubics, product marketing manager, recording and broadcast, AKG. “The C4500 BC’s relaunch will offer a comfortable and reliable solution for any on-air miking or voice-over application.”
The C4500 BC is specially designed for on-air broadcast purposes. The mic is designed with cardioid pickup and offers an edge-terminated, large diaphragm condenser capsule. It has a reported 8dB-A self-noise and 145/165 dB SPL capacity. The mic’s acoustical design and front-end address allow it to be used for on-air broadcast work and use in front of instruments, including bass drums, upright bass, baritone sax or other high-output sources, due to its 3-stage filter and low up-close bass boost, allowing for close positioning to sources.
