The AKG C518M is the ultimate miniature cardioid condensor microphone for drums and percussion. With a cardioid polar pattern that rejects overspill from nearby instruments the C518M is a great fit for stage or studio work. The AKG C518M features a continuously adjustable vise-type clamp which makes it easy to fix securely on the top hoop of most drums or percussion instruments. An external shock mount provides high mechanical-noise rejection, and a special snap-on stabilizer knee will keep the gooseneck bent at a defined angle. The C518M also features an integrated, switchable bass cut for adjusting the microphone's frequency response to any instrument's sound. This is an all around great microphone that will bring out all the great nuances and tonal charactaristics for any style of player.
