  • Let your vocals shine

    The AKG solid tube is a condenser microphone that will provide you will top notch quality for your vocal recordings. I found that the best use of this microphone comes in a treated room and not a big open space. You can afford this mic for your home studio so just be careful about where it is being used and the space around it. It can really be a deciding factor when using it. Your space that you recording should be taking just as serious as buying a mic.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The AKG Solid Tube mic has a very classic and modern look to it at the same time. It has a brass look that is polished and well made. It looks like a very expensive mic but the truth of the story is that its not that expensive. So if you are pressed for a mic that looks great this could be one of the best ones. Not to mention that it will give you a warm rich sound and make your vocals sound really big. Also, if you have a good engineer behind you he can turn your recordings with this mic into excellent quality. You just need to eq a little bit especially on the low end cut some of those low frequencies out and I let the high’s go with it because they weren’t to bad the AKG solid tube.

    I was actually surprised by the quality of the Solid Tube. I didn’t expect to get that sound of a mic that was this price. Plus it’s a great thing that it looks good too. This mic has shined in all aspects for me and I would purchase it again with out a questions. I recommend this mic to several people if they are on a budget. You wont be disappointed let your vocals shine.

    Especially vocal microphone, and studio.

    OVERALL OPINION

    About a year.
    Good micro lights ... Heat before using. Its warm, mtallique not at all, many low medium. Must Galise a bit if you want the sound 'modern' with some artificial highs.
    No breath at all. An excellent standard. It is also the solid ...
    If you like the color AKG, as we will y.

    a pretty immedia separate cable and a special design and mastock pretty lamp that lights up and

    I was looking for a vocal mic that's good because that's what he does is in fact
    We love fast well below its expressive pa so common but not well on a U87;

    Really not bad just a bit expensive new (it is not far from a 414 different still qualitative)

    It is a micro light cardio, power remote, pad-20 db

    OVERALL OPINION

    It has been trying for three days, with a preamp AMEK
    The sound is rather soft, the miccro is not screaming at all. Without EQ, the stand taken already.
    on the other hand, there was a hum, which made us pretty slaved. A strength test was removed completely in the buzz surrounding the grave of micro foil. In fact, AKG has found nothing better than to make a small "window" type PVC at the lamp, just to look pretty, I think ... Result, ca night away. With the combination of aluminum, more worries, but for a microphone that price, it's still making fun of the world ... That's why I stay on a 7 and I do not put more.......

Otherwise, the price / quality ratio seems honest. The sound for the voices I like more than the TLM 103.

    Micro lamp, which gives a good heat your voices!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it to make decision-rapper voice and I am happy trs, verse has a small but prampli first prize followed by a good comresseur trs (T-Comp), rendering, and obtimal for this type of voice!
    I highly recommend it for hip-hop!!

    See previous reviews for features. I add a strong point to the strength ... It has been several times a clumsy musician turns it into crash test (including a very severe fall) and did not budge ....

    The low cut is substantial. Be careful to control its use for rendering and the dynamics of your recording.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for several years (four or five years I can not remember ...)
    Its heat is significant for the voices. attention to be strict with the sound and direction of your microphone ... A slightest mistake in your line of sound recording and you will understand why some accuse it a dynamic and discuss various reports.

    Very good point, the ground lift on food.

    The look is excellent.

    It is a microphone that is an excellent investment with a very attractive value for money if you are able to understand his philosophy and his reactions ... So it takes experience to get the best ...

    Good micro lamp not too expensive for the home studio
    Robust if the screed on the ground (not too often even when)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 6 months, and I love the quality of his voice and instruments such as an accordion. I have not tried a ton of mic in my life at this level l but I can say I'm satisfied with TRS.

    I record mostly rap and vocals are trs important in this type of record.
    For cons, I have to use a proper setting of EQ later if not the continent voice too low and lacks a little clarity.
  • Gotta love Tube Mics!

    AKG SolidTubePublished on 10/25/10 at 14:25
    This is a tube condenser microphone. As such, it really should only be used on professional grade recording projects in studios. Elsewhere, it'll either be too noisy, pick up too much ambient noise, or be in too loud an environment to work well. Not to mention that it actually is super fragile. It's a large diaphragm tube mic, with it's own power supply and custom shockmount.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I really like the sound of this mic very much. I tend to prefer tube mics on a lot of instruments, and this one is another great example of how well they work across a variety of different uses.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I really like the sound of this mic very much. I tend to prefer tube mics on a lot of instruments, and this one is another great example of how well they work across a variety of different uses. The last engineer I worked with used this on everything, it seemed, as a mono room mic for drums (very spacious sounding, warm ambiance). I also tried it on acoustic guitars and got a crystal clear sonic picture with a nice amount of warm feeling to it. Similarly, I liked it a lot on vocals, particularly female vocals that are softer. I found that I could run it through the tube pre-amp for an especially solid sound. It still sounds great on male vocals too, though it probably wouldn't beat some of the other mics we had at the studio.
    While this isn't the best tube mic I've used, it's certainly a lot cheaper than some of those ones that I would consider the best. I often wonder whether or not the price difference is worth it. I often doubt that it is, considering that after most projects are mixed down and mastered, most of the subtleties of each track are gone. Therefore, a good sound is a good sound, and doesn't necessarily need to be an amazing sound. The sounds with this mic are never anywhere less than great, and they should work fine for you too if you decide to pick one up.
