Default Experience of AKG C 3000 B?

Has anyone info of the AKG C 3000 B.
Is it any good for vocals?
The info on the AKG site is that it´s
kind of allround.
What do you think?

I've had one. Tried it on male vocals and it was just alrite. But when I bought a Rode NTK the difference was astonishing. I use the Rode with a Focusrite Penta pre for vocals and it sounds great. The AKG, however, is a better all around mic, in my opinion, if you have a recording booth. If you record in your bedroom i guess you'll prefer a dynamic mic, like the SM 57.

Goodluck!

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">if your looking for something real good in that price range, you have to check out the Studuio Projects C1 single pattern $229.00 or there C3 which is the same mic but has multi pattern for $349.00

i did a whole album with the C3000 and it sounded fine for vocals, it sounded real good on accoustic guit...I would demo the studio projects gear before you buy anything.

if you end up really wanting the C3000 check out Musicians Friends, they have the c3000 w/shock mount and the c1000 small condenser mic with clip both in a case called the Project Pack for $399.00 (only $100.00 more) a nice little combo for stereo miking accoustic guitars as well.

Can't say the my C3000's get used too much for vocals, a bit shrill for my tastes...prefer my RE20 and 414's..

Love the 3000's as overheads on percussion...vibes, and xylophone in particular (I do a lot of live reinforcement)...also great for string quartet's in an OH left/right configuration.

YMMV. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

If you're looking for a good all-around microphone in that price range, you may want to check out the Audio Technica 4040...it's not as "exciting" a microphone as the C3000 or C1 may appear to be, but if you're looking at one good all-around microphone you want something that's fairly neutral so you don't have too many of the same frequencies building up on each track.

I like the C3000B for vocals and all kinds of stuff for that matter. If that is your price range, it's a good mic. Also in that range is the Shure KSM27, that is similar to the C3000B, and some of my friends have been buying that one too.
