AKG C518ML Clip-on Drum/Percussion Condenser Microphone (Mini XLR)


Available on backorder



AKG C518ML  is ultimate miniature condenser microphone 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 stabiliser 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 unique adapter plate A 400 allows easy attachment of the AKG pocket transmitters.
