More Info

The pop recording industry often prefers selected models of dynamic microphones for pickup of closely-spaced bass drums and bass guitar amplifiers, because the moving system of the dynamic can be designed to handle these high excursions with very high mechanical linearity. The AKG D 112 Microphone is a descendent of AKG's earlier D12 dynamic microphone, and is widely known for its ability to handle high level signals from bass drums and bass guitars in the studio. The microphone has been designed with a low resonance frequency and can handle very high transient signals with virtually unmeasurable distortion; it has an enormous dynamic range with a very high signal/noise ratio and the capacity to input very high sound levels without distorting. High frequency response has been tailored to keep both bass drum and bass guitar clearly distinguishable in the mix. A built-in windscreen makes the D 112 also suitable for high SPL instruments such as the trombone and tuba.
