Designed for singers, musicians, and podcasters, the AKG P120 Condenser Microphone Starter Recording Kit with Notepad-8FX from B&H makes setting up a home studio simple. The kit includes a black AKG P120 cardioid condenser microphone, an 8-channel analog mixer with USB I/O and Lexicon effects, closed-back studio headphones, a tripod mic stand with a telescoping boom, one nylon pop-filter, and a balanced XLR 3-pin microphone cable.

The mixer supplies 48V phantom power for microphones through the XLR input. With high SPL handling, a wide frequency response, a -20 dB pad, and a 300 Hz low-cut filter, the microphone is well suited for vocals and a variety of instruments.

The supplied pop filter reduces problematic plosives and easily attaches to the mic stand. The mixer's XLR, RCA, and 1/4" inputs allow connection of mic, instrument, and line sources, while the USB I/O enables operation as an audio interface, allowing your to record to a computer.

AKG P120 Cardioid Condenser Microphone (Black)

Whether you record vocals at home or mic up blaring guitar cabs and explosive drums on stage, the black AKG P120 condenser microphone is designed to give clear, distortion-free sound on a tight budget. This side-address mic sports a rugged all-metal body that not only bolsters durability, but also aids in rejecting RF interference from sources such as wireless systems. It comes with a stand adapter for straightforward mounting on your existing mic stand.

The low-mass 0.67" gold-sputtered diaphragm yields a detailed sound with a slight high-frequency rise above 10 kHz, and it is capable of handling SPLs up to 150 dB (-20 pad on) without audible distortion. A gentle low-cut filter at 300 Hz can be engaged, which helps reduce rumble, wind noise, or even bass buildup from up-close miking. Stage bleed and background noise are attenuated by the mic's cardioid polar pattern, which is most sensitive to sound in front of the microphone. Use a separately available XLR cable to connect the P120 to an XLR mic input that can supply 48V phantom power.

Cardioid Polar Pattern
This side-address microphone is most sensitive to sounds arriving from in front of it while picking up much less of sounds arriving from the sides or rear (from monitor speakers or neighboring instruments). This makes the microphone equally suited for recording and onstage use.
Gold-Sputtered Diaphragm
The 0.67" diaphragm—sized between the measurements of typical large and small diaphragms—is made of a plastic foil that is gold-sputtered on one side only to prevent shorting to the back electrode even at extremely high sound pressure levels.
All-Metal Body
The all-metal body adds to the rejection of RF interference so you can use the microphone near transmitter stations and along with wireless microphones or other communications equipment. The extremely rugged, heavy body and sturdy front grille protect the microphone from damage from tough handling on stage.
High Headroom and Minimum Distortion
Capable of handling sound pressure levels up to 150 dB without introducing perceptible distortion and built to resist high temperatures and humidity, the microphone will give excellent results in a wide range of applications.
Bass-Cut Filter
Selector 1 on the microphone front further reduces low-end distortion caused by footfall, wind noise, and air conditioning rumble. The filter also minimizes the proximity effect that close-in miking from less than 4" causes in any unidirectional microphone. The filter rolls off at 6 dB/octave from 300 Hz downward.
Switchable Pad
Selector 2 on the microphone front lets you increase the headroom by 20 dB for distortion-free recording up close. The pre-attenuation pad prevents the microphone's output level, particularly at low frequencies, from overloading the miniature transformers used in many mixer input stages, etc.
Connecting to Audio Equipment
The P120 uses a condenser transducer designed for 48V phantom powering from a source such as an external mic preamp, an audio interface, or a mixing console. It provides a balanced output on an XLR 3-pin male connector; use an XLR cable (available separately) to connect the microphone to a balanced XLR input with phantom power.

Soundcraft Notepad-8FX Small-Format Analog Mixing Console with USB I/O and Lexicon Effects

The Notepad-8FX from Soundcraft is a small-format, 8-channel analog mixing console with an integrated 2x2 USB audio interface and built-in Lexicon effects, well suited for music production, podcasts, video production, interviews, rehearsals, writing sessions, and mobile events. The mixer combines professional-grade analog components such as two microphone preamps with combo XLR-1/4" inputs, 3-band EQ, and 100 Hz high-pass filters. Additionally, input 1 offers a Hi-Z instrument input for incorporating guitars and other high-impedance instruments.

Channels 1-6 include gain/trim controls, and all channels feature an aux send, pan knob, and level controls. Channels 3/4 and 5/6 feature 1/4" line-level inputs, while channels 7/8 include stereo RCA inputs. Outputs include Master L/R on XLR, a 1/4" aux send, and a dedicated 1/4" headphone output with selectable monitoring of the master bus or aux bus. The on-board effects include delay with tap-tempo, reverb, chorus, and karaoke. The master section offers a master fader and four LED meters with -20, 0, +6 dB, and peak settings. The Notepad-8FX features a durable metal enclosure and ships with an external power supply.

  • Soundcraft-quality sound from professional microphone preamps
  • Easily record, edit, and play back from your Mac or Windows computer with an integrated USB audio interface. Simply plug-and-play with your Mac (Windows computers require Soundcraft driver installation)
  • Sweeten your mix with HARMAN digital signal processing including Lexicon reverb, echo, and delay

AKG K72 Closed-Back Studio Headphones

The K72 from AKG is a closed-back and over-the-ear studio headphone that features professional-grade 40mm drivers and a self-adjusting headband that is light and comfortable. It can be used with a broad range of playback devices in applications for rehearsals, recording studios, live stages, and more.

The K72 headphones are built with a single-sided nondetachable 3.5mm TRS 9.8' cable and include a 1/4" screw-on adapter. The frequency response is 16 Hz to 20 kHz and provides an accurate monitoring solution, which delivers an extended low-frequency that gives definition to kick drums and bass guitars. Furthermore, since earpads are usually the first components to show wear, these are replaceable to protect your investment over time. Finally, whether you're tracking the hook or mixing background harmonies, the K72 is designed to provide hours of comfort.

Professional Drivers
The 40mm drivers deliver high sensitivity for a powerful output, plus an extended frequency response that reveals every detail. The K72s also feature a low-impedance design for compatibility with a broad range of playback devices, from professional studio gear to portable music players
Closed-Back Design
The K72 headphones' closed-back design eliminates audio leakage and delivers sound to your ears only. A microphone won't pick up the sound of the click track in your headphones, and you'll always be able to mix peacefully without being distracted by outside noise
Comfortable Listening
The self-adjusting headband automatically creates the perfect fit for every band member. No need to mess with delicate sizing mechanisms, which have the potential to break over time. Breathable, lightweight earpads encircle your ears, rather than putting pressure on them. And a single-sided cable gives you freedom to move
Professional Build Quality
Replaceable earpads are usually the first components to wear, so to protect your investment over time, these earpads can be replaced

Via the adjustable swivel C-clamp, the 512-Pop securely attaches to any boom arm or mic stand. The inclusion of a flexible and sturdy gooseneck ensures problem-free positioning of the pop filter.

Cleaner Sound
By preventing intrusive pops and plosives caused by bursts of air from p, f, and s sounds, the 512-Pop delivers a clear sound while saving you the time and energy often spent removing such sounds in postproduction.
Enhanced Protection
The 512-Pop features a metal mesh filter that more effectively disperses pops and plosives from speech and vocals compared to ordinary nylon pop filters. With its flexible yet sturdy gooseneck, you'll easily find the perfect placement that reliably stays in place.

Does this microphone require additional equipment to be used with a Zoom H4N pro?
Asked by: Michelle
I have a similar mic and the zoom H4n pro. You can connect this directly. It just needs 48v phantom power to operate which youll find in the menus of the zoom.

Can the mic stand adapter (mount) be purchased separately? I have an older akg perception that I'm assuming is compatible.

We do not have the stand adapters seperatrely but we do have shock mounts that would fit.

what microphone stand would you request for this microphone?
Asked by: Paula
The AKG P120 Cardioid Condenser Microphone can be used with a variety of different microphone stands. You could use a tripod style floor stand with a boom arm like the Auray MS-5230F Tripod Microphone Stand with Fixed Boom (B&H # AUMS5230F) or without a boom arm like the Auray MS-5230 Tripod Microphone Stand (B&H # AUMS5230). If you prefer a tabletop stand, the Auray TT-6220 Telescoping Tabletop Microphone Stand (B&H # AUTT6220B) and the Ultimate Support JS-DMS50 Tabletop Mic Stand (B&H # ULJSDMS50) are both good options. If you would like a studio broadcast arm, the Samson MBA38 Microphone Boom Arm - 38" (B&H # SAMBA38), the On-Stage MBS5000 Broadcast/Webcast Boom Arm with XLR Cable (B&H # ONMBS5000), and the Auray BAE-2X Two-Section Broadcast Arm with External Springs & Integrated XLR Cable (B&H # AUBAE2X) are all compatible. Please feel free to contact us if you have additional questions or if you would like further assistance to select a microphone stand that will be best for your specific application.
