AKG C3000b Microphone Hire 

AKG large-diaphragm microphone technology
Cardioid polar pattern for many vocal and instrument applications

The earlier model C3000 has had a large fan club in the project studio and home recording worlds for years. For the new C3000b, AKG designed a special 1-inch large-diaphragm transducer that closely approximates the vibration performance of top-class studio microphones, but can be made at much lower cost.

Due to its surface area and special capsule tuning, the C3000b large-diaphragm transducer produces an exceptionally pleasing, smooth sound. The switchable 10-dB preattenuation pad immediately follows the transducer in the signal path, thus increasing the C3000b's SPL capability by a true 10 dB. Loud sound sources are therefore no problem.

An acoustically optimized cardioid polar pattern makes the C3000b an excellent choice for both recording and live sound applications where high gain before feedback is paramount.
