Overview

The AKG C 1000 S Condenser Mic is an excellent vocal mic. It works well even from a distance, making it ideal for recording choirs and other live music ensembles. Outstanding performance when used for instruments and ideal for home recording applications.

A special converter (PPC 1000) turns the microphone characteristics from cardioid to hypercardioid if it is mounted on the mic top. The new PB 1000 Presence Boost adapter provides an additional 5dB high-frequency peak in the cardioid mode, adding brilliance in the 5 to 9kHz range. Operates on either phantom power or standard 9V battery, and an LED has been added for low-battery warning. The C 1000 S can also be used for a variety of studio applications.

I love them!

By 

from Dayton, Ohio

Comments about AKG C 1000 S Condenser Microphone:

I bought two of these AKG SDC's for Choir recording and when placed right, they reproduce very natural sounding choir parts! They also work for drum overheads, snare, and toms!

There may be good sound...under that annoying hum

By 

from St. Louis, MO

Comments about AKG C 1000 S Condenser Microphone:

The $280 I spent on this mic is basically down the drain. I have two other condenser mics that are dead silent. My C 1000 S has an annoying low frequency hum, which makes it unusable for my purposes: recording intimate acoustic guitar. I called AKG, and they gave me the phone number of some service guy. I left a message explaining my problem and he never called back. Was thinking of buying a C 414, but given the poor customer service, I don't think I'll buy another AKG product.

It's a Swiss Army Mic

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about AKG C 1000 S Condenser Microphone:

On/off switch, battery operation, two attachments for the capsule, This thing is a Swiss Army Mic with that AKG quality. I chose this over a bunch of other condensers in the store based on the sound alone. This picks up more ambient sound, which makes it great for micing a room or performance. I've recorded choirs, narration, shy vocalists, and guitars (very nice combined with a 57 for stereo guitars) with this mic. It's solid, big, and has a built in windscreen too. My only problems are that it's too pricey for me to get another one for some serious stereo recording, and the on switch is a little too recessed so some people have a tough time turning it on and off.

Nothing touches it!!!

By 

from cary,NC

Comments about AKG C 1000 S Condenser Microphone:

This is a great mic for the money.Yes neuman and other companies make great stuff,but for the money,this is a great mic for drum overheads,choirs,certian instruments as long as moniotors/feedback issues aren't a problem. I have 2 pairs of these.They work well for instrument recording too. They are also indestructible with rugged metal chasis and special mic clip to keep them securely attatched to your mounts.

For No-Budget Action Movies

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about AKG C 1000 S Condenser Microphone:

I used the AKG C 1000 S Condenser Microphone to pick up audio for an ultra-low budget action movie. It does the job. It is very rugged for a condenser mic. It takes a 9V battery, so you do not need to bring a powered mixer/phantom power source with you on location. Simply plug the mic into your DV camera.
