About this Product
This used latest version AKG C3000 MK3 Black Microphone comes with a shock mount.
Condition: This microphone is in good condition with normal wear, has been tested, and sounds exactly like it should. The included aftermarket shock mount holds the microphone very securely. Please see pictures for details on item condition - only what is pictured is included.
Product Details: The AKG Model C 3000 is a studio quality microphone designed around a large 28 mm (1.1 in.) diaphragm acting in conjunction with a very small diaphragm for precise pattern control at high frequencies. This combination of diaphragms has the virtues of low self noise (18 dB A) and very high output capability (137 dB for 1% THD and 140 dB for 3% THD). The microphone's polar response may be switched between cardioid and hypercardioid, depending on the specific application. The transducer section is internally shock mounted for minimum handling noise or floor-borne vibrations. A switchable 10-dB pad can be engaged for closein applications on-stage or in the studio, effectively raising the output level by 10 dB for a given distortion value. An electrical bass cut (6 dB/octave below 300 Hz) compensates for proximity effect for close-in vocal application, resulting in smooth response down to 100 Hz with a gentle roll-off below that frequency. The C 3000 microphone operates with phantom powering over the standard ranges from 12 to 48 volts (9 to 52 V dc).
In addition to its use in the recording and broadcast studio for both vocal and instrumental applications, the C 3000 has many applications in music and speech reinforcement. Its carefully engineered off-axis response produces rejection at 180° (cardioid setting) of greater than 30 dB in the critical midband range from 300 to 1,500 Hz. Due to the dual diaphragm design, the 180° pattern rejection is never less than 12 dB over the extended range from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, This is quite an accomplishment for any cardioid microphone design.
