HypercardioidAKG Acoustics C 419

Hypercardioid Condenser Microphone

  • Microphone for wind instruments
  • Miniature gooseneck for accurate microphone alignment
  • Transducer shock mount reduces handling and cable noise

This condenser clip-on microphone has been designed specifically for wind instruments including saxophone, trumpet, trombone, tuba, etc. The C 419 is also en excellent choice for per-cussions such as Udu drums, cajón, and frame drum, or as an alternative to the C 418 on the snare drum. A frequency-independent hypercardioid polar pattern reduces spillover from neighboring instruments to a minimum. A rubber coated clamp ensures easy attachment to the bell of a horn or the sound hole of a cajón, and a 4.3-inch (110-mm) adjustable gooseneck allows precise microphone alignment.
