AKG C414XLII Condenser Microphone


The other day, my buddy Steve was saying that there really aren't any good mics that can be used for solo vocals and solo instruments. He also said Highlander 2 was better than the first Highlander, and I was all like "Shut up, Steve. Highlander 2 is clearly inferior to the first movie, and also the AKG C414XLII is a great mic for all your solo vocal and solo instrument needs!" He then called me an idiot, and now Steve isn't allowed at my house anymore.



What Seve doesn't understand is, with the introduction of the NeXt Generation C 414 B-XL models, AKG sets new benchmarks for useful features, improved technical specifications, ease of use and available accessories. All of these improvements are answers to requests from ever-demanding recording studios, broadcast stations and concert engineers, but with the basic sonic character of the legendary C 414 unaltered.
