Stage Microphones

Live Sound Essentials


A microphone is perhaps the most important link, in the audio chain that transmits an artist’s voice to the audience. Clear audible sound is what excites the audience and to achieve this kind of sound, a microphone par excellence is a must. In this product focus PT profiles some live microphones launched in 2018 - state-of-the-art and some new to Indian market.

AKG C636


AKG C636 master reference handheld vocal condenser microphone has a custom-tuned capsule. It is made to capture a vocal performance in all its nuances while rejecting feedback, handling noise, and pops.

Main Features Include:

  • Its proprietary double shock suspension system greatly reduces handling noise, even during the most energetic on-stage performances. Its capsule sits on a highly absorbent rubber bearing, eliminating any structure-based noise, while an adjustable balancing network cancels vibration over a wide frequency range.
  • The protection system spares no expense and consists of the grille, a foam layer behind the grille and a magnetically attached computer-modeled mesh layer on top of the capsule. This triple-layer protection system is virtually unique to AKG and is not found in any microphone remotely near this price range.

  • Built-in Class A Mic Preamp: When in active mode Stealth features a high-quality built-in Class A Mic Pre, dispensing with the need for an expensive external gain lifting device. Stealth features a fully balanced signal path from capsule to output, yielding a superior reduction of ‘Common Mode’ noise compared with single-ended (unbalanced) designs.
  • Unique Sorbothane internal shock mount: Sorbothane is a synthetic viscoelastic urethane polymer used as a vibration damper and acoustic shield used in computing, hi-fi and many industrial applications.
