Fantastic

08.08.2016
Bought a pair of these to use as general work horse mics in my small studio. They are great and so far cannot be faulted. Great quality, nice weight and a manageable size.

I couldn't justify spending close to £1000 on C414's so the C3000 won it for me.

These are primarily being used as drum OH and room mics, but have heard great things when used in other circumstances. The pad and bass reduction switch really come in handy (the pad more so) and mean the mic can be used almost everywhere.

Comes with the cradle which is reliable and works well, its also light so even the weakest mic stand can handle the weight.

Only disappointing thing is there is no flight case included anymore. How ever I did find a few second hand C3000 flight cases on an auction website so win win.

Overall a great quality mic for a great price, Bargain!

AKG C3000

Joel8437, 25.06.2016
I use the C3000 mainly for home studio recording, to mic up guitar amps, & have used it occasionally for vocals. I have also used it a couple of times at live gigs as an instrument mic.
i have had good results in each of these scenarios, but i find it has been more effective as a guitar mic (i have other mics that are better suited for vocals)

Features:
the C3000 is a large condenser mic, with a gold sputtered 1" diaphragm.
it has a -10db attenuation switch for use in close miking, allowing you to record music with high sound pressure levels (up to 150db)
it also has a low cut filter switch which eliminates proximity effect.
it comes with a nicely designed shock mount, & a hard case

pros:
(check features above)

cons:
the only thing i can think of is that it has gone up in price since i bought it

all in all, it is a great little mic, good quality sound, sturdy build & good value for money
