AKG Product Overview

The AKG C636 Master Reference Condenser Microphone ensures that singers can focus solely on their performance without worrying about the gear behind it. The C636 is designed to produce unfiltered, pure sound free of disturbance from pop noises and unwanted feedback. Featuring the same sound quality of the legendary C535, this condenser microphone is also designed for extensive stage and studio use. Containing hand-picked components and three proprietary technologies, the C636 aims to address the issues all vocalists face on-stage.

Taking qualities from the C535 microphone, the AKG C636 provides vocalists with a pure studio sound suitable for live performances. The precise condenser microphone allows you to focus purely on your singing rather than the gear behind it, allowing you to perform to your best. Knowing the harsh environment of the live stage, AKG have designed the C636 microphone to efficiently reject high amounts of handling noise, pop noise, and interfering feedback.

The AKG brand has built itself on the basis of outstanding studio-quality sound. The C636 is the next in line of high quality condenser microphones and features a custom-tuned capsule to deliver an uncompressed sound similar to the popular C535. The newly crafted components such as the multi-layer pop system, double shock suspension system and feedback suppressors add nuanced studio fidelity to your stage performance.

Studio microphones rarely translate well to the stage environment. However the C636's handpicked components were pierced together to deliver a microphone with outstanding capabilities on stage and in the studio. The proprietary double shock suspension system reduces handling noise drastically even with the most hands-on performances. The microphone capsule includes a highly absorbent rubber bearing to resist structure-made noise and an adjustable balanced network eliminates vibrations over a wide frequency range. Finally, the condenser microphone by AKG contains a brass layer just below the capsule to improve stability and emit cleaner acoustics.

Uniform cardioid polar patterns give microphones the most sensitivity within the front of the mic and the least in the back. The pick-up pattern offers resistance to unwanted ambient noise and feedback, making them ideal for loud, busy stages. The C636 moves one step further in feedback elimination by adding a specially designed suspension and grille for the capsule. The intuitive approach to the construction of the capsule rejects unwanted sound reflections on the back of the capsule as this is the most common cause for feedback in other microphones.

Gathering feedback from their audience, AKG designed the C636 to deliver clear and pop-free vocal performances to singers. The condenser microphone features a multi-layer protection system and consists of the grille, a foam layer behind the grille and a computer-modeled mesh layer at the top of the capsule. This innovative triple-layer protection system is primarily unique to the AKG brand and is extremely rare among microphones within the same price range.

All the inside components of the C636 meet today's sound standards, so it's only fair that the microphone is constructed with the same quality. Featuring rugged zinc alloy and spring steel grille, the master reference microphone ensures stability during extensive touring and use. With a 24-karat gold-plated capsule, the C636 is resistant to moisture and corrosion and ultimately lets you enjoy your performance, hassle-free.
