For vocals and solo instruments onstage or in the studio The smooth, clear and open sound of AKG Acoustics' C 3000 B has made it one of the world's most popular studio microphones. The C 3000 B was designed as a studio and stage microphone to be used for both vocal and instrumental recording applications in which large diameter capsule excels. Used for vocal applications as well for solo instruments, the C 3000 B can be custom tailored for almost any stage or studio task.

Newly-designed 1" diaphragm delivers high-end performance The earlier model C 3000 has had a large fan club in the project studio and home recording worlds for years. For the new C 3000 B, AKG designed a special 1-inch large-diaphragm transducer that closely approximates the vibration performance of top-class studio microphones, but can be made at much lower cost. The six-micron-thick active-mylar diaphragm that has been precision designed for the ideal frequency response. Inside the C 3000 B, the latest generation of Surface Mount (SMD) Technology ensures the microphone's electrical and mechanical stability. The features and performance of the C 3000 B make it at home anywhere, from your project or "high-end" studio to your live sound applications.

Switchable pad accommodates loud instruments and amps Due to its surface area and special capsule tuning, the C 3000 B large-diaphragm transducer produces an exceptionally pleasing, smooth sound. An improvement over the original mic, the C 3000 B's switchable -10dB preattenuation pad immediately follows the transducer in the signal path, thus increasing the C 3000 B's SPL capability by a true 10dB. Loud sound sources are therefore no problem. An acoustically optimized cardioid polar pattern makes the C 3000 B an excellent choice for both recording and live sound applications where high gain before feedback is important.
