Bringing new life to the classic C 747 microphone, AKG has redesigned the “pencil microphone” to better cope with specific installed sound issues, AKG announced today at Musikmesse. The updated C 747 V11 brings a new form of premium microphone quality to conference applications and maintains its predecessor's reputation as one of the most versatile microphones in the AKG product range.
The versatility of the C 747 is apparent as the mic is capable of handling a range of instruments and positions, including overhead positioning for its brilliant sound reproduction and its unobtrusive optical appearance and is also included in numerous broadcast stations, recording studios, theaters, opera houses, churches, conference rooms and lecture halls.
The redesigned C 747 V11 eliminates unwanted interference by mobile phones and wireless mics with the addition of an integrated RFi shield and the frequency response has been fine-tuned in order to provide a clear, understanding sound without changing the ambience of the classic C 747 sound.
With an enhanced hyper-cardioid polar pattern, the V11 provides consistent off-axis rejection to control ambient noise and feedback in acoustically challenging environments. Another feature, not existent in the earlier C 747, is a switchable LF roll-off filter that works to suppress mechanical noise. The low impedance pre-amp operates on 9 to 52 V phantom power without a transformer.
The C747 V11 ships with an extensive accessory set, including a shock mount/adapter, mini gooseneck, stand adapter, mounting clamp, thread link and windscreen.
