This is my 2nd time buying this mic and it STILL hits!!!


I use this mic to record vocals and a few live sounds. It's got amazing clarity and sensitivity. Also the on-body presetting switches allow for a little extra input control with a lot more sound range on the output end.



I would recommend this mic to others.


Very Sweet mic. Ideal for Jazz and any other soft vocals.



Great Microphone!


Awesome Service! I love Sam Ash!



Bang for the buck!


Not gonna find another condenser mic with this quality, at this price point. ...Period!



All perfect!!


All perfect!

The 3 polar patterns they give you which is omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure 8. There is also a low-frequency switch to cut down on the dead noise. I like this mic a lot a recommend for anything your doing!

Versatile, solid mic


There really isn't much this mic can't do. Acoustic guitars, electrics, drums, vocals, piano, brass and woodwinds, it can handle it all and sound good while doing it. The 3 polar patterns (omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure 8) allow you to really dial in the sound you need for your recording. The low frequency rolloff switch is also nice for voices or instruments that have a lot of thick bass coming through to even up the tone and make mixing easier. The included shockmount does a great job and the aluminum case is attractive and protects the mic very well for storage or traveling. This is a real hands on product review by Steve at Sam Ash Music in Lyndhurst, OH.

Great condenser mic for the price


The P420 is a great condenser mic for the price. High sensitivity and can handle up to 155dB SPL. Warm and transparent sound quality perfect for grand piano, woodwind and brass instruments. Also a great mic for drums and percussion. Three selectable polar patterns cardioid, omnidirectional or bi-directional, it is a very versatile mic and is great for stereo mic'ing setups.

Perfect for the Home Studio


A pro sound really lies in the mix, but a great mic can certainly help achieve the desired results more easily. This lovely piece is very versatile and I have yet to find a voice that this mic hasn't been suited to. AKG has proven themselves to take frequency resonse in a neutral sense, and this mic shows that neutrality in the best way possible. It's rather difficult to sound bad, and the results that show up in the DAW inspire confidence.
