AKG C1000 S Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
The AKG C1000S - THE SWISS ARMY KNIFE OF MICROPHONES
For vocal and instrumental recording, on stage, in ENG/EFP and video production.
The updated version of the C1000 S multipurpose small-diaphragm condenser microphone is extremely popular for its versatility. It is suitable for recording and live-sound applications as well as for ENG/EFP and video productions. Its gold sputtered capsule housing makes the microphone extremely rugged against humidity. If no phantom power is available, the C1000 S can be powered by two standard AA batteries for up to 120 hours. More versatile than ever before, the new C1000 S features a bass-cut switch and a switchable -10 dB pad.

Saw these microphones being used at an outdoor concert to amplify acoustic instruments and singers. Worked very well and I’m happy with my purchase. Can be used for voice and/or instrument amplification and picks up sounds from a good distance.
Swiss Army knife!
Excellent piece of kit. I put the cone in it and use it to amplify my mandolin.
Bought this to replace an earlier version which had stopped working.
