Nearly 20 years after its launch, AKG’s workhorse C3000 is back – and accompanied by reissues of the other Project Studio Line mics, the C2000, C4000 and C4500 BC.

AKG C4500 BCThe revamped Project Studio Line focuses on the home/project studio market, but the mics are also intended for use on stage. The new designs of the C2000, 3000, 4000 and 4500 BC maintain many of the technical features of the earlier models, but have a more sleek design. The line’s edge-terminated capsule mimics AKG’s premium line of mics, including the C414 and C12VR.

‘AKG’s new Project Studio Line takes a fresh look at a technology that has stayed true to the recording industry for 20 years, which is testament to the quality and reliability of our world-leading microphones,’ says Thomas Stubics, Product Marketing Manager for Recording & Broadcast at AKG. ‘The relaunch of C3000 and company offers artists and engineers looking for a cost-effective, high-quality solution the opportunity to continue doing what they love, channelling their art in tremendous, warm and clear sound.’

The C3000 is optimised for lead vocal, electric and acoustics guitars, and drum overhead applications. Its switchable attenuation pad and low-cut filter enable high SPL up to 150dB and eliminates proximity effect. The C2000 small-diaphragm condenser is intended for vocals, brass and percussions thanks to its transient response and low end sensitivity. Its low-noise electronics ensure low distortion and a high dynamic range.

The C4000’s large-diaphragm, multi-pattern design provides high headroom and low self-noise. With one of the widest dynamic ranges for condenser mics, the microphone is well suited to thin vocals, bright brass and acoustic guitars. The C4500 BC is specially designed for on-air broadcast, with a cardioid pickup for voice-friendly tuning and low proximity effect, along with high RF/EMI insensitivity. Its low noise and 165dB maximum SPL also make it suited to close micing of low instruments, such as bass drums, low brass and guitar amps.
