AKG C 2000 B
I will mention the main features of the AKG as gleaned from their own description and will add how it applies to us as users. The main situation you may find yourself using this microphone would be: in-studio room mike, perhaps close-miking a large response instrument like a bass-drum or a cello. It has a prepolarized condenser which gives very flat and ear-like response. Molded for frequency of 30Hz to 20kHz it is very versatile even in a situation where it must record a room, say, of a small orchestra. Properly placed it will perform to a decent professional -- if entry -- level.

There is also an excellent bass cut filter of 6 dB/octave below 500 Hz which allows you to essentially flick a switch on the mike and cut different low end frequencies. Say for example you're recording the room of a club and it's super-boomy, well you can use this mike to make a low-end cut, making the difference between a recording that's completely bass-filled or not.

There's plenty more technical details to investigate, but essentially this is an excellent room or instrument mike, well-known as the AKG entry level model and quite excellent in sturdiness and performance. Even entry level of an AKG product is high in most home-studio standards.


I've had this mike for 3 years and it performs fantastically. The only side of the sound I don't really like is that while many microphones have a 'tonal personality' this one is so flat you may finding yourself only using it as a 'room mike' or a back up mike or a bass drum mike. It wouldn't be first choice for some situations due to the flatness of its response. But it is an excellent 'mirror mike', meaning it would sound very similar next to a pair of ears in a certain spot of a room. Other close models, however, usually wilt at the quality of AKG. I would say it's essentially a top five flat cardioid polar pattern microphone. It being under $200.00 is fantastic, as it also comes with a lined travel case and a shock mount as well. I highly recommend this as an excellent first room mike or live room mike.

AKG C 2000 B
I use the microwave for more than three years in my home studio and to date not a single worry.

I have tried in various studios lot of mics in the same price range (230 € at the time) and the AKG C 2000 B, I e precise manufacturing Austria, which convinced me away because it makes a warm sound, especially on vocals.
This sensitive terrain microphone that truly does not produce NO noise, no really, even increasing volumes o exaggerating the gains. perfect.


Finally, I will discuss the price, very attractive ... this mic, I still accurate made in Austria, not China, is playing in the big leagues with a quality / price need to demonstrate, it is absolutely satisfying and I URGES. Unfortunately I can not say the same of Chinese manufacturing.

AKG C 2000 B
Condenser microphone, sold with his suspension and his briefcase.


Used under various conditions to record an acoustic guitar (folk or classical), a snare drum played with a broom (or fingers) of the mallet toms, cymbals and especially a violin and a cello, this microphone is very versatile.
I have a KSM 32 that I keep mainly for vocals but the AKG C2000B allows me to save the rest without qualms, it works quite well in several registers.
I have just four days of intensive recording with me and he did not disappoint, even surprises me, and my friend who is rather picky drummer found it very versatile for its various interventions.
A good price / quality ratio

This type of microphone is great for home-studio debut, but it can also be used for decision-acoustic sound very good qualities. The voice also goes well with qualitée una always very correct


I use the microwave for 2 years and really good for people looking for quality at an affordable price range. The bandwidth is correct and there really is a beautiful grain. The treble is still quite present in the 10 kHz alantour I think .... The highlight of this report is especially micro qualitée / Price. It is on it's not worth a Neuman, but anyway very correct
