AKG C 1000 S (without LED)
Electret microphone cardioid or hypercardioid change is effected by mounting / dismounting a small room on the capsule.
Micro am saying extremely versatile for stage or studio (acoustic guitars, percussion, voice ...)


In retrospect, my innocence in this matter has perhaps lost the seller, I wanted to use a micro-Home Studio, and to record mainly guitar and voice, in a relatively noisy (campaign, but two kids in the house ...).
He had to imagine they were cycling in the next room, from which the specifics of the microphone!
In the end, I used 3 months and then exchanged at the store against a Behringer B1 that is exactly my case, hello the deadweight loss (a factor of two).
In short it was my first microphone, and I screwed it remains to be tested in other circumstances (it seems that in Exelle transplanting live acoustic guitars! To see ...)
For me, the sound card, tubular, very medium, short unsuitable for use for home studio taken voice and guitar.

Dedicated voice and instruments.

Cardio hypercardioid and Electrostatic


I use it for 6 months.
I did not back because I have not tested other condenser microphone.

I use a couple Focusrite VoiceMaster + C1000S and I think the sound is much more chiseled a dynamic microphone.

I plan to resell it for a TLM, but I wonder if using home studio (living room and condominiums) there is no budget ceiling beyond which the environment degrade the quality of far too material.

The C1000 is a cardioid microphone / hypercardio it nessecite a phantom power supply but can function without (apparently).


I used a couple for quite some time now (about 5 years), honest I've seen better, the background noise is sufficiently large, trs sensitive to wind and small parasites and it is not too value instruments, I test on a classical orchestra is not gnial, the noise quickly became teachers and a sound "cold", a group of the Chamber Music quasiement is useless, but hey, we did not every day. on the other hand of a big band jazz and overhead drum has the rings, in fact it is a good microphones as there is a good acoustic pressure on scne is handy too, but there more.
They are not mine, I work with, but the use I prfre of C535 of the same manufacturer, which are much more versatile my taste. I do not recommend purchasing this microphone to catch his acoustic in difficult conditions, even a TRS coupled pramp good on the other hand to catches brass or percussion is good practice. To purchase a résumé microphones should wait to be able to pay more but if it's in a hurry or the budjet and Reduces's a good micro when making the same trs good services.

This is a condenser microphone for use rather via a phantom power supply (it is easy to forget to "off" on the microphone, so bye bye battery!)


I use it for 2 years in a small home studio, as a couple.
To be truly effective, it must be an application book in a loud, because it lacks precision in the sounds "weak" (sound of outdoor environments). on the other hand in overhead on charley, or even before a guitar amp, the sound is good. For use with the voice, it is better to pair it with a external preamp, because it quickly shows its limits by playing directly on a wafer.
Bought new a couple 500-600 €, it is better to learn about other models (see next is the use you make of it, because it also has qualities!)
