AKG C2000B
  • Dry Hire - £18.00 + VAT per day

This is a wonderful mic which can be used either for live or studio work. It comes with a shockmount.

One of the basic rules of recording is that the quality of the recorded signal is determined by the weakest link in the signal chain. Today, any microphone needs to match the high quality of 24-bit recording media.

Therefore, one of the most important requirements for the AKG C2000B was high sensitivity. This allows you to lay clean, noise-free tracks with no risk of noise levels from many individual tracks combining in the mix. Its high SPL capability makes the AKG C2000B a highly versatile microphone that can be used even for extremely loud instruments.

The AKG C2000B will give perfect results for demo recordings, in the rehearsal room, as well as in the best recording studios.
