AKG Project Studio P820 Dual Capsule Tube Microphone


You'll love this if you're a producer who wants a versatile real tube microphone that won't break the bank. Tube microphones have a unique sound that can not be achieved without using real valves. They have a much rounder almost compressed sound with a smoother high end when compared to solid state microphones. You can now get this unique sound without having to shell out a lot of money with the AKG P820.

True Valve Sound

Nothing beats the sound of a true valve microphone. From the rounded off high end to the almost compression like smoothness this type of sound can only be made one way.

You would most commonly use a microphone like this on higher pitched vocals, but there is no reason you couldn't use it on an acoustic guitar or as a room mic when recording drums.

9 Polar Patterns

Most tube microphones are suited to a free key applications but not this AKG P820. You get 9 different polar patterns that go from omni directional through cardioid and into a figure of 8 patterns with everything in between.

With these you can really dial in the exact pattern needed for the job. Need a cardioid with a little more of the room sound? No problem! Want a figure of 8 where the front is slightly stronger? This mic has it!
