Product Highlights
  • Cardioid Polar Pattern
  • Wide Frequency Response
  • -10dB Pad Switch

The AKG C3000 Studio Microphone is a cost effective studio condenser microphone well suited for project studio recording and live sound applications alike. The C3000 is an ideal choice for both vocals and instruments with its wide frequency response, cardioid polar pattern and high SPL capability. The -10dB pad switch maximizes headroom when capturing transient (peaking) signals, and a 500Hz low frequency roll off switch minimizes low-frequency noise, proximity effect noise and more. The microphone ships with a metal case and a shock mount.

      Comments about AKG C3000 Studio Microphone:

      I play in a Bluegrass band - we use two C3000s for lead and harmony vocals at our regular gig. We get great reproduction and gain before feedback on stage. And B&H had the best price and cheapest shipping online!

        Comments about AKG C3000 Studio Microphone:

        I bought the AKG C3000 primarily because I was looking for a decent condenser microphone, form a reputable manufacturer, within budget.

        I never expected a magnificent sound from this mic. But my expectations were surpassed considering the sound derived form the C3000.

        To begin with, this mic is solidly built in Vienna, Austria and looks elegant in black metallic finish. I use it with m101 preamp and the sound is clear and upfront.

        Given the price, it delivers a well defined sound. I am pleased!
