    AKG C 518 M MicroMic Drum Microphone Product Description

    AKG's C518M MicroMic Drum Microphone is the ultimate miniature condenser mic for drums and percussions. Its cardioid polar pattern rejects overspill from nearby instruments. A continuously adjustable vise-type clamp makes it easy to fix the microphone securely on the top hoop of most drums or percussion instruments. An external shock mount provides high mechanical-noise rejection. A special snap-on stabilizer knee will keep the gooseneck bent at a defined angle. The C 518 M features an integrated, switchable bass cut for adjusting the microphone's frequency response to your instrument's sound.

    The C 518 M comes with adapter plate A 400 for easy attachment to AKG PT 40 and PT 4000 pocket transmitters.
