The AKG CK49 Hypercardioid Shotgun Capsule with Windscreen is a reference condenser capsule with an 80deg. pickup angle and clean off-axis response. It is an ideal tool for inexperienced speakers; whenever people talk into the microphone from greater distances and wherever professional studio sound is required. This special capsule is a further development of the legendary CK47 capsule. Like its predecessor, it is designed in AKG's unique staple technology for brilliant studio-quality audio performance.
The CK49 capsule is integrated into an extremely slim and rugged metal housing. It fits all gooseneck modules of the Discreet Acoustic Modular Plus Series as well as the HM1000 M hanging module. To prevent contact problems, the capsule is equipped with large-area, self- cleaning, gold-plated contacts with deep threads to prevent misalignment and ensure extra-long life. The CK49 comes complete with a windscreen that efficiently reduces wind and pop noise.
