AKG C 391 - well suited for instruments that are too light / sharp

DORA Music, 29.12.2011
I now own a whole range of microphones: Neumann KM 184, Audio Technica 4041, AKG C 514, Oktava Mk 012, Beyerdynamic, Earthworks ...

While some of them sometimes appear to be "pointed" (certainly also depending on the sound source), the AKG C 391 sound remarkably "rounder". Since after the recording is nothing too bright or too sharp. Because when bright sound sources are recorded with light-sounding microphones, the result can be annoying.

They are most comparable with the Oktava Mk 012 - but without octava-typical colors; Or with the Neumann KM 184 - however, they are (of course) not so high-resolution and detailreu (one must however also fairly the price difference between the two note!).

Conclusion: All in all, the AKG C 391 are good microphones, which I mainly use as a connector. Placed in the right place, they do their work quite rightly in the overall sound.

Very good static microphone

AlainN, 31.05.2011
The product is of excellent quality
Condenser mic that is part of the C 390 system including, among other things, a universal power supply / output module SE 300B and 8 different microphone capsules.
The CK 91 capsule used here is cardioid, its response curve is practically linear with a slight rise from 5000hz to about 12000hz and a sharp drop from 15000hz to 20000hz.
A contactor placed on the body of the microphone makes it possible to attenuate the output signal by 10 db or to filter the frequencies below 75 hz. One can regret not being able to do both at the same time.
Very robust material, traditional AKG finish.
Fixing of the capsule by bayonet: very practical and reliable.
