AKG has announced a new reference vocal condenser mic, the C7.
Featuring specially engineered circuitry and custom-designed components, the C7 is said to provide clear, powerful sound, while preventing feedback, handling noise and pop noise. The rugged enclosure is engineered to withstand the most demanding live performance environments, claims distributor Sound Technology.
‘The C7 microphone is ideal for vocalists seeking an even higher level of performance on stage,’ said Noel Larson, Retail Solutions, HARMAN Professional Solutions. ‘While it delivers the pure, clear sound of a condenser microphone, it’s designed to prevent feedback, handling and pop noise—making it as easy to use as its dynamic counterparts.’
Offering a super-cardioid response pattern, the C7 is said to be particularly resistant to feedback and eliminates handling noise through an innovative, built-in mechano-pneumatic shock absorption system. The system features a unique rubber layer surrounding the capsule, ensuring that vibrations from the housing are not transferred to the capsule. AKG searched extensively to find the right rubber to meet the specification, ultimately working with a Viennese company to source a patented material with such strong absorptive properties that it lands completely flat when dropped.
The AKG C7 will have an RRP of £209. Info: www.soundtech.co.uk/akg
