Akg C 426 B

State of the Art Stereo Mic

Product Code: 7828

We're sorry, this product is no longer available.

A direct descendent of AKG’s renowned C 422 and C 24 large diaphragm stereo condensers, the C 426 B incorporates new technology for significant improvements across virtually all performance parameters: dynamic range, self-noise, sensitivity, linearity, frequency response between channels, and crosstalk. Two gold-sputtered twin-diaphragm capsules are arranged in a coincident pair. The microphone head may be rotated 45 degrees against the shaft and the upper system rotated 270 degrees against the lower to facilitate quick changeover from M/S to X/Y techniques.

Two tightly focused LEDs mounted on each rotating capsule provide quick visual verification of capsule angle from a distance. Switches on the microphone housing select bass roll-off (12dB/octave at 75Hz) and -10dB preattenuation. Included remote control system allows completely noiseless selection among the nine polar patterns available for each capsule. Complete system also includes shock mount/stand adapter, foam windscreen, 66’ connecting cable, and rugged carrying case.
