Now in its fourth generation the AKG C1000SMKIV delivers that famous AKG condenser sound with a new and improved matt grey/blue color body.

The versatility of the C1000SMKIV makes this an extremely popular model, and one ideally suited for all kinds of recording and live sound applications - the true swiss army knife of microphones.

If no phantom power is available, the mic can be powered by 2 AA batteries (upto 120 hours usage), making it perfect for mobile use. With its new battery monitoring electronics, the C1000SMKIV now features a reliable LED warning light. You'll never be caught with a useless mic in situations where phantom power is not available.

The C1000SMKIV polar pattern can quickly be switched from cardioid to hypercardioid simply by attaching the included PPC 1000 Polar Pattern Converter to the microphone capsule. Plus, The C1000SMKIV includes a PB 1000 Presence Boost Adapter that adds 3 to 5dB of high-end enhancement between 5 and 9kHz, improving clarity of speech and adding definition to instrument sounds.
