Review: AKG C 214 Large-diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone
What a great mic. You cant go wrong with this one. Supposed to be the same capsule as the famed 414 but with cardioid only pattern.
For the money you are getting a pro mic that is never harsh and the right mic for a lot of situations. I fouind it especially good on guitar cabs as well as acoustic guitar. But dont rule out drum overheads, toms, and even vocals.
If you are looking for a swiss army type of mic this could be the one, especially at the price. Has 20db pad, and filter.
Comes with a good shockmount and aluminum case.
