    "AKG D112...Takes a kicking...keeps on gigging"

    Sound:
    I've used the D112 extensively for sound reinforcement. I will own one that is why I visited this website. The 'flow through' screen design lends itself to extreme sound pressure levels, meaning it can actually be mounted inside the kick drum, close to the beater head. I am pumping 1100 watts of power to a pair of 18's through an electronic crossover and with the D112 only minimal compression is even needed. You can "feel" the kick drum in the front of house. Simply the best.
    Feature:
    By the way, did I mention how phenominal it works when micing a bass guitar rig?
    Quality:
    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder on this one. As far as it's appearance, you could say that it is easily recognizable. It is built for functionality! As rugged as a tank and always out performs anything else in its' class. I spent 10 years on the road with the same one. Our drummer owned. Now with a whole new band I will own one of my own.
    Manufacturer Support:
    All I can say about product support is that I've never needed it. The D112 has never failed in 10 years of road use.
    Value:
    In a world of many microphone choices and price ranges, to think of what a mic that performs like the D112 could cost and what it is typically sold for, again, nothing touches it!
    The Wow Factor:
    In live performanve situations, the people are dancing to that kick drum. It is the driving force behind the music. When you see those @@@@@ sway to your kick drum sound, tell me if you're having fun.
    Overall:
    The D112 is one stop shopping for a kick drum mic for me.

    "Best mic for Bass guitar cabs."

    Sound:
    Best for Bass rigs. An engineer put this mic on my bass cab in the studio and I was so impressed with the sound I bought one. I've always preferred, and sometimes demanded, a mic for my rig in studio and live (most guys wanna run ya direct cause its one less cable and they may not have a 'spare kick drum mic')- An open, breathing tone with punch from my cabinets is KEY to my sound and I sometimes use effects and feedback as textural elements. This mic delivers MY tone and has the mildest and most appropriate freq. response of all I've seen. Lotsa low-mids and high punch in the right spots. It is engineered for massive pressure and high volumes.
    Feature:
    Mine came with an adaptor for stands, but no case! I want a nice case for a $200 mic!
    Quality:
    Rock solid. Industry standard.
    Manufacturer Support:
    No dealings with ACK directly, but they are an established leader in the field. This mic will LAST if taken care of.
    Value:
    Worth it for the specific job. I want the sound IT gives. For kick drum I think there may be other ways to go, but for the prem-o bass guitar sound, its worth the investment.
    The Wow Factor:
    It looks and is sturdy, and has that distinctive blue/green stripe around the mesh-front. I think it looks good in front of my rig. Mostly its the performance.
    Overall:
    I have no plans to get another mic for my bass rig. This mic is the deal. It is not 'fancy' and in studio there are many more 'options' of exotic or vintage mics.. For me the sound and rugged quality of this coupled with my desire to take my TOTAL sound with me to gig or session was important. This does the trick. Goal met. But- include a case with the purchase, AKG!
