The affordable AKG D790 dynamic microphone is ideal for lead and backing vocals, and it's versatile enough to work with woodwinds and horns and for guitar-amp miking. The AKG D790 microphone's outstanding performance is a result of AKG's Tiefzieh Varimotion diaphragm technology, and a frequency-independent supercardioid polar pattern which provides effective feedback suppression.
The AKG D970 mic's integrated wind and popscreen prevents pop and breath noise as well as sibilance. With the AKG D790 microphone's voice pickup optimization, you'll hardly ever be be using your mixer's EQ. AKG protects the D970 microphone's transducer element from damage with a strong, die-cast body, a wire-mesh outer grill, and a shock-absorbing inner-steel mesh grill.

I bought this mic new in 2004 at GC at W. 14 St. in New York when it cost about $120.00. I had the intention of purchasing a Shure SM-58. I tested the Shure with another mic that was about the same price (AT or Sennheiser I can't remember). These to mics were quite similar; the tonal differences were slightly different,however, but not enough to say one was better than the other. I asked staff member David Max (who unfortunately for us has since relocated) to recommend an alternative: for $20.00 more the AKG D790 won the prize! It blew away every other manufacturers' equivalent mic and--much to my surprise--mics that were two to three times the price!!! The AKG D790 feels nice when being held, is built, has a stronger/hotter, clearer, more dynamic signal than the other mics I tested and I felt it really made my voice (baritone/bass) sound much better than it actually does! If I were touring, the AKG D790 would be my first choice for a "premium" high-end affordable dynamic microphone. I would also try to get the entire band to use it. Given the special price that is presently being offered,
I needed extra mics for a youth band with our church, so budget was limited. These are working out great! Nice pick up and sound quality. The only down side is no on/off switch on the microphone, but I can overlook that for the price. Highly recommend this mic to anyone needing a decent product for a reasonable price.
