The AKG's P4 dynamic instrument microphone is intended for use with drums, percussion instruments, wind instruments, and guitar amplifiers. The cardioid polar pattern concentrates sound in front of the microphone while decreasing feedback and background noise. This dynamic microphone can endure high SPLs and has a neutral frequency response, making it ideal for sound reinforcement, rehearsals, project studio recording, and other applications. The P4 is constructed of solid metal to endure the rigours of daily stage use. It's versatile and easy to use with an inbuilt stand adapter for snare and toms.
