    AKG D40 reviews

    D40 Cardioid Instrument Microphone is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth sounding All-Around Mic for live 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.
