The AKG C568 B mic is a vintage shotgun mic from AKG. The C568 B professional small condenser capsule combines high directivity and a wide frequency range. It is a perfect tool for theatre, sound reinforcement, and film or TV applications. Due to its compact and lightweight design, the C568 B is ideal for camera-mount use. Below 500Hz, it functions as a hypercardioid microphone. Above 500Hz, the acoustic interference tube introduces increasing directivity. A switchable 12dB/octave 120Hz bass roll-off filter effectively suppresses impact and wind noise. The C568 B’s rugged, all-metal body contains the built-in pre-amp, which requires 9-52V phantom power.
