The only available options are -20dB switch on the mic itself and Low filter (40Hz) on the power supply box. Comes with the robust case, good quality shock-mount absorber and usable foam as a poper stoper (yelloooow!), I don't use it, though. Use regular stand mounted net, works better. It has cardoid pattern, but I didn't need anything else so far. It has all you may need for vocal/acoustics mic.

Price paid: $500 USD used


Just great! It has that warmth of tube mic, yet very clear and balanced tone. If you don't want to spend hours on producing the vocals this is the right mic. With a good preamp (I use dbx 376 tube channel strip) all you need is a somenone who can sing. Yes it colours the sound significantly but in a great way. I just love the it. It's also great for the acoustic instruments and percussions. Even the crapy ones sound better recorded then live.

Due to the small number ov available options it's very easy to use. No doubts about positioning either. Stand in front of it and sing/play. That's it.

Hey it's AKG. Top quality. Tube is still being produced so no fears for spare parts. It's for the studio use only, of course.

You've got to love it! I do!
