Didn't send a new mic in a box

By Disgruntled

About Me Experienced

Comments about AKG P170 Project Studio Condenser Microphone:

BEWARE. Maybe you'll get a new one, maybe you won't. I ordered two of these. One was brand new in a box. The other was wrapped in bubble wrap. When I contacted Guitar Center through chat, they explained that I was sent a display model from a store. When I asked about returning it they said I could return it to my nearest Guitar Center. I live in Wyoming. The nearest guitar center is 300 miles from here. Their alternative solution was to call the store directly to set up the return. I've decided to cut my losses and shop somewhere that provides better customer service.

    Comments about AKG P170 Project Studio Condenser Microphone:

    Wonderful versatile SDC. Amazing on all acoustic instruments. Stands up to microphones costing 10 times as much like the KM184. Oh... don't lose the stand adapter... I hear they are expensive! lol

    Comments about AKG P170 Project Studio Condenser Microphone:

    This mic was purchased to record an acoustic guitar. After comparing it to the Samson Gtrack mic I decided to return it. The sound was a bit to muddy for me. The Gtrack sounded much better.

    Comments about AKG P170 Project Studio Condenser Microphone:

    I used these on cello, banjo, and cymbals for three days straight right out of the box. Very crisp, clear, subtle sound... more than good enough for live sound.
