AKG C636 Condenser Microphone
Master reference condenser vocal microphone
Be aggressive, the C636 can take it. If you've ever tried to bring a studio mic on stage, you know they're too delicate to stand up to the task. The C636 mic's proprietary double shock suspension system greatly reduces handling noise, even during the most energetic on-stage performances. Its capsule sits on a highly absorbent rubber bearing, eliminating any structure-based noise, while an adjustable balancing network cancels vibrations over a wide frequency range. In addition, a substantial brass layer below the capsule serves as a counterweight that increases stability and delivers cleaner acoustics.
A new approach to broad-spectrum feedback rejection. The C636 essentially eliminates feedback by combining a uniform cardioid polar pattern throughout the entire frequency spectrum with a specially designed suspension and grille for the capsule. This unique approach to housing the capsule avoids unwanted sound reflections on the back of the capsule from stage sound sources, the most common cause of feedback in other microphones.
World-famous AKG condenser sound quality. For 70 years, AKG has pioneered the art of premium studio-quality sound, and we understand it's what's inside that counts. Continuing this legacy, the C636 microphone features a custom-tuned cardioid condenser capsule with hand-selected components that maintains the coveted C535 uncompressed sound. That means you can capture your performance with unfiltered and nuanced studio fidelity, whether you're on stage in a small club or one of the world's largest stadiums.
Triple pop noise protection. When AKG artists told us that "pops are the enemy," we listened and incorporated a multi-layer protection system to provide singers with clear, plosive-free vocal performances. The protection system spares no expense and consists of the grille, a foam layer behind the grille and a magnetically attached computer-modeled mesh layer on top of the capsule. This triple-layer protection system is virtually unique to AKG and is not found in any microphone remotely near this price range.
