AKG C 518 M is the ultimate miniature condenser microphone for drums and percussion instruments. AKG C 518 M’s cardioid polar pattern rejects overspill from nearby instruments. A continuously adjustable vise-type clamp makes it easy to fix the C 518 M microphone securely on the top hoop of most drums or percussion instruments. An external shock mount provides high mechanical-noise rejection. A special snap-on stabilizer knee will keep the gooseneck bent at a defined angle. The C 518 M features an integrated, switchable bass cut for adjusting the microphone’s frequency response to your instrument’s sound. The AKG C 518 M is designed for use with an external phantom powering.
