US manufacturer Peluso has released the P-414 – a solid-state multi-pattern large-diaphragm condenser microphone inspired by the vintage 1976 AKG C414 EB, incorporating the original CK12-style brass capsule. This brass dual-backplate edge-terminated 34mm capsule gave AKG microphones the detailed mid-range and shimmering high-end air they are most renowned for.

The body and head grille are made in-house out of heavy brass and steel for maximum durability.
