In the Perception 420, 2 back-to-back large-diaphragm capsules create a flexible multi-pattern microphone capable of cardioid, omni, and figure-8 recording patterns. It features AKG's new design and logo style, True Condenser capsule technology, a switchable -20dB preattenuation pad, and a switchable bass-cut filter to minimize noise and boominess. The condenser microphone is housed in a rugged chassis with a gold-plated XLR-type output. Spider-type shock mount and metal case included.
In 2005, AKG launched the Perception models 100 and 200. This was the beginning of a big success story. With Perception, AKG created a new series of microphones with legendary AKG sound and quality at an outstanding price/performance level. AKG's Perception Microphones are among the best wired condenser microphones in their price range.
Requires phantom power.

I bought this mic over year ago without knowing about the Rodes NT-1 Condenser Mic that many have claimed is and exceptional mic. I have used the Rodes NT-1 and i love that mic as well. But this mic has a lot of qualities the Rodes doesn't. If a quality preamp is used and this mic is used in a surrounding acoustically suitable,,, this mic picks up amazing tone qualities and all over acoustic sound. I use Cubase as my recoding software. I also use the Steinberg MR816x Interface Pre Amp combo and i get amazing results. Vocal it is a great mic but sometimes depending on who your recording vocals with it is not a choice id make as a versatile mic instrument wise and vocals. Vocalist with a softer projection,,,, this mic is amazing to record with, with that being said. Personally i love using this mic for acoustic guitars. Doesn't matter about the quality of the instrument. It picks up exactly what you want within a decent range. Ive also used this mic for an added reverence in drum recording and it works amazingly for that as well. Over all a good choice!
This durable microphone is a great addition to any studio collection. Its variable settings and 20dB pad make it ideal for any recording environment. Get the PRO COVERAGE!
I think this is a great mic all the way around Im very satisfied with sounds qualityt thate the akg 420 gives
