AKG C 414 XLS
The new C 414 XLS and the C 414 XLII microphones offer nine pickup patterns that enable it to choose the perfect setting for every application. For live sound applications and fixed installations, all controls can be disabled easily for trouble-free use, and the peak hold LED displays even the shortest overload peaks. Both mics have three switchable bass cut filters and three pre-attenuation levels that allow lead vocals and solo instruments to be placed in even the densest mixes.
The large-diaphragm C 414 XLS maintains the sonic character of the C 414 B-ULS, and is geared for miking acoustic instruments.
The C 414 XLII is the successor of the C 414 B-TL II, and allows lead vocals and solo instruments to be placed even in a dense mix. Other uses include classical music recording and drum ambience miking.
The C 414 comes with a carrying case, a pop filter, a windscreen and spider-type shock-mounts. In addition, AKG offers both the XLII and XLS in stereo sets.
