Akg C 542 BL

Boundary Layer Recording Microphone

Product Code: 44486

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

The C 542 BL is a high-quality boundary microphone designed to deliver superior results for a multitude of recording applications. The boundary layer technique is well-known for recording and offers non-directional pickup that is frequency independent.

Succeeding the proven C 562 BL, the C 542 BL is small, lightweight and easy to place. no stand is needed. Since the transducer sits in a metal plate only 5 mm (0.2 in) thick, the plate doesn’t interfere with or color the sound. Frequency response is very uniform within its hemisphere and it captures the "room sound" of an instrument very accurately.

The C 542 BL can be permanently attached to the floor or wall of a studio using the screw holes in the plate or attached temporarily using the supplied adhesive compound. Its 3-pin output connector also has a switchable bass-cut filter to minimize surface-born noise.

Easy to use and sonically versatile, the C 542 BL is a great addition to the ’mic locker’ of any studio.
