Side-Address Cardioid Condenser Microphone


Part of AKG's Project Studio microphone series, the P120 is a cardioid condenser microphone with a 2/3" diaphragm that is designed for recording vocals and instruments. The P120 is a solidly built, all-metal body microphone that can withstand the rigors of daily use and will deliver clear and accurate sound thanks to its low-mass diaphragm.

The P120 also features two physical switches on the front of the microphone, a -20dB attenuation pad allowing for a max SPL of 150dB and a 6dB/octave high-pass filter at 300 Hz to help keep low frequencies in control.

A microphone stand adapter is included to allow for the P120 to be attached to any standard microphone stand.
