AKG C518 ML Miniature Cardioid Condenser Clamp-On Microphone
The AKG C518ML is the ultimate miniature condenser microphone for drums and percussions. Its cardioid polar pattern rejects overspill from nearby instruments. The C 518 ML has a continuously adjustable vice-type clamp that makes it easy to fix the 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 ML is a condenser microphone and therefore needs a power supply. It can be powered with the B 29 L battery power supply, AKG WMS Series bodypack transmitters, or the MPA V L adapter for external phantom powering (none included).
This version includes an A 400 adapter plate that allows easy attachment of the AKG pocket transmitters.
