The AKG P170 small-diaphragm condenser microphone offers professional-grade quality and reliability for an amazing value. Perfect for recording drum overheads, acoustic instruments and ensembles, the P170 delivers incredibly accurate and transparent sound. Thanks to its cardioid polar pattern, the mic rejects unwanted sounds from the sides and rear. With a 20dB pad and durable construction, the P170 is ideal for any studio microphone collection.

Accurate Transient Response and Clarity

The P170 features a 1/2" true condenser transducer diaphragm that provides outstanding transient response and clarity. Its lightweight diaphragm translates even the most subtle sonic details with stunning accuracy. The P170 offers a level of quality typically found in far more expensive mics, capturing the natural tones of acoustic instruments, percussion and other sources with lifelike realism.

Rugged and Road-Ready

Although the P170 delivers studio quality results, it's built to handle life on the road. Its high-quality components are housed in a durable case designed to withstand the rigors of transport and performance. A steel mesh grille protects the condenser capsule and the mic's robust internal shock mounting prevents unwanted mechanical noise. The P170 gives you professional-grade condenser mic sound that goes wherever your music takes you.

Ideal for Stereo Recording

With its affordable price and matched performance, the P170 is perfect for purchasing in pairs. Its consistent polar pattern and frequency response allow for accurate stereo recording using two mics. For drum overheads, acoustic ensembles and other sources, a matched pair of P170 mics provides an authentic stereo image with stunning depth and realism.
