      Comments about AKG D40 Cardioid Instrument Microphone:

      Currently, we're using this microphone for guitar in our live setup. It handles high SPL's well, sounds good, and being a little shorter in length than the competition, it allows us to place it in tighter spots. It is a good mic for guitar and toms. I wouldn't use it for vocals, however.
