The AKG C418 is a miniature hypercardioid condenser clip-on microphone with shock mounted capsule, ideal for miking drums and percussion.
The C418 miniature condenser clip-on microphone has a specifically tailored frequency response for drum and percussion miking applications and is an alternative to the C419 for loud trumpets. Its hypercardioid polar pattern rejects leakage from nearby instruments while the solid clamp makes it easy to fix the microphone securely on the instrument.
The C418 shock-mounted capsule provides high mechanical-noise rejection while withstanding even the heaviest drumstick blows. A two-angle adjustment arm ensures precise microphone alignment.
