Brilliant for close cymbal miking
05.10.2016
Very Compact condenser mic.
We have a clear sonic drum booth with roof and these akg c430 mics are great for that Environment. They don't take up much space and produce really good results when used close to hihats, and ride cymbals. Use slightly further away for crash cymbals but not too far away as the sound reflections from the booth panels cause problems at the sound desk.

Great entry level mics for overhead or hat use
Iain M., 01.09.2014
These mics are an excellent entry point for those who are on a budget and want a inexpensive pair of small diaphragm condensers that will give you great value for money.

I've used them primarily as a pair of overhead mics but have also been more than happy with their performance on hi hats.

Good cymbal microphone
Michael W. 860, 19.05.2013
I use this for mic'ing hi-hats, due to it's very small size I can squeeze this mic into places most other overhead mics can't get to. I only gave it 4 stars for sound, as it's not the smoothest sounding mic I've ever heard, but, saying that it is perfectly good enough for stagework. My only criticism is that it only comes with a cloth bag, which won't help the longevity of a condenser mic, so flightcase it.
