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.

Good one !

22.12.2016
After seeing a set of microphone reviews for amps I decided to buy this microphone. It has a wide frequency range, picks up every detail of the amp's output and sounds great.

The purpose was to buy to record with the guitar amplifier, but I have already tried to record voice and it sounds good, even if it is not designed for that. It is a dynamic microphone with a good cost to the quality.

I do not like to buy something just because everyone uses it. I liked the sound and decided to take the risk and I'm happy. The quality is very good.

It has a good metal finish, has a good distribution of weight and is very small. I can not find negative points so far.
