The CK49 Shotgun Condenser Microphone Capsule and W49 Windscreen from AKG is designed for use with DAM+ gooseneck modules and the HM1000 M hanging module. It features a hypercardioid polar pattern and an 80° pickup angle. The CK49 was designed with inexperienced speakers in mind by focusing in on the voice range when used at a distance, and reducing pop sounds when used up close. To assure proper alignment when used with one of its compatible modules, the CK49 has self-cleaning gold contacts. A W49 windscreen is included to reduce wind and pop noise.
