AKG Mic Review
MartinS 615, 15.06.2014
Purchased the AKG D40 for use on a drum kit, build quality is fantastic.
It feels very robust with a good strong front mesh that should prevent any damage from flying drum sticks.
The mic comes with dual thread sizes so there's no need to look for an adapter if your thinking of using it on a stand.
The supplied plastic mounting clip looks like the plastic won't last but don't be fooled, it's allot more robust than it looks.
Sound quality is good with little EQ required to produce a great sound.
I have yet to use it on a guitar amp but my guess is that it will handle SPL's well.
Very compact in size, you really can't go wrong with this, definitely going to place an order for some more.

An alaround mic !
alphatheta, 09.08.2021
i wanted a dynamic mic at budget ...
you can use this for guitar amps , maybe as a second mic for bass amps, for toms and snare , brass instruments and more ..
Decent sound quality , nice low ends and surprisingly very pleasing highs ..
I'm thinking to buy some more of these for toms ..!
After months of using this i haven't found one negative feat.
Overall very happy with this purchase!

Amazing price/quality ratio
Cristii, 21.03.2020
Extremely good for the price. Has almost no background noise in a room (bedroom studio style) which has a fridge and some other machinery hurring. Perfect for recording vocals or instruments, even table drumming works fine (with some post-effect adjustment hehe).

Really recommended!

So far, nothing not to be liked!

Best value microphone I have ever bought.
Jaybles, 23.06.2020
This mic is great! Looks smart and feels like a premium build.

I am using this mic for all my snares and hats for drums, as well as for my Fender Deluxe valve amp when playing guitars or keys - both for live and recording this thing can handle it all!

It even sounds pretty great for vocals! Not that this is the officially recommended use for this mic I believe, but nevertheless I haven't heard anything bad come out of this whether it's drums, bass, guitars, keys, or vocals!
