Ideal For Drums & Percussion

The AKG C518 Clip-On Condenser Microphone is a highly-compact, premium-grade studio microphone designed for the recording of drums and percussive instruments. The C518 utilises a cardioid polar pattern, ideal for rejecting overspill from nearby instruments; making it perfect for live band performances as well as singular studio recording. The integrated mounting clamp means you can easily attach the microphone to your drum/other percussive instrument, with full-metal housing and shock mount that protects the internal capsule for harder beats.

The wide frequency range (60Hz – 20kHz) ensures you capture every nuance from your drums performance in immense detail. The high impedance and sensitivity ranges means you can drum loudly while still capturing the subtle nuances from your performance, ideal for studio-grade recordings. The microphone comes complete with a gooseneck holder, meaning you can easily find the perfect position every time. It also comes complete with its own XLR cables, as well as an A400 adapter plate, allowing you to mount the microphone onto a wireless body-pack transmitter. The microphone cable is also detachable microphone cable for easy installation options.
