The capsule in the ‘B’ revision incorporates some patented technology. The original C 3000 was released in 1993. [T]he isolating parts (3, 11, 19, 23) as a whole, or at least partly, have a heat capacitance of at least one third of that of the electrodes (2, 11, 15, 21) and the housing (6, 22) including the transformer, and a conductivity of at least one hundredth of that of the electrodes (2, 11, 15, 21) and the housing (6, 22). There is no acoustical or technical difference between the new black C 3000B and the predecessor in silver-bronze color. Includes shock mount, foam wind screen and flight-case (small edge dent).Pristine, not a scratch or mark on this mic. The ‘B’ revision was introduced in 1999, and was essentially a new design, with a single electret cardioid capsule, in a silver-bronze color.

Please let us know! Cardioid This size helps shape response with the warmth and transparency that are typical of other high-quality AKG models. The switchable attenuation pad and low-cut filter enable high SPL up to 150dB and eliminate proximity effect. The C 3000 B is a large-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone for universal use, designed and made specifically to suit the needs of musicians as well as the rigors of the stage. It was black in color and had two separate capsules — cardioid and hypercardioid, both externally biased or “true” condenser designs. Equivalent noise level (A-weighted): 14 dB, Sound pressure level for 0.5% THD: 140 dB (150 dB with, Akg acoustics microphone user manual (38 pages), Professional multi-pattern (25 mV/Pa; 20 to 20,000 Hz). USE/ADVANTAGE - Reduces noise and recovery time if unit gets damp…. In 2009, AKG re-released the electret version of the mic in black, confusingly named the “C 3000,” but this is identical to the B revision. Its design provides a very low self noise floor of 14-dB-A, along with a maximum level capability of 140 dB, producing an, overall operating range in the studio of 126 dB. It is an excellent choice for vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, drum overhead and brass instrument miking. The H 100 elastic suspension mounting is an included, accessory with the C 3000 B. It has a 1", (25mm) large capsule, with an active gold-sputtered mylar foil, diaphragm. high-pass filter (-6dB/octave @ 300Hz) pad (-10dB) The mic was introduced in 1993, and later replaced in AKG’s lineup with the C 3000 B, a single-capsule electret condenser mic that had little in common with the original but a name and body shape. It has a 1” (25mm) large capsule, with an active gold-sputtered mylar foil diaphragm. Compared with my Rode NT1, which I still think is a bargain amongst low-cost capacitor mics, I found the C3000B to be slightly more sensitive and just a little brighter. Did we get anything wrong on this page? off-axis rejection across the entire frequency band. The capsule assembly is, internally shock mounted for low handling noise, and an internal, foam sheath minimizes breath noises and pops with minimal, Tailored for the modern studio, the C 3000 B has the typical, AKG large diaphragm "signature contour," a slight dip at 2.5 kHz, followed by a rise at 5 - 6 kHz and 9 - 11 kHz. Through the 10-, dB pre-attenuation switch the operating range of the, microphone may be shifted up to 150 dB for close-in pickup of, very loud sound sources. The AKG Acoustics C 3000 B is also known as: C3000B, C 3000 B. The 1999 edition (aka the ‘B’ revision) has a 1'' large-diaphragm capsule that “closely approximates the vibration performance of top-class studio microphones.”. The C3000 high-performance, large-diaphragm condenser microphone has been a standard for live applications and studio recording for almost two decades. The C 3000 B is a second-generation “C 3000” condenser microphone. To further confuse matters, the C 3000 B was relaunched in 2012 as the “C3000;” see sidebar links for details. zZounds is an authorized dealer of AKG products. This is the earlier model of the C3000 and is a highly regarded version in the project studio scene. It was black in color and had two separate capsules — cardioid and hypercardioid, both externally biased or “true” condenser designs. Another change between the original and B revision: the -10dB pad follows the transducer directly in the B circuit, making the pad more effective than in the original design. The ‘B’ revision was introduced in 1999, and was essentially a new design, with a single electret cardioid capsule, in a silver-bronze color. The first C 3000, many years ago, was also black, but incorporated two capsules in order to achieve cardioid and hypercardioid characteristics. Its cardioid, pickup pattern is extremely well controlled, providing excellent. The electrostatic transformer comprises a membrane (1), opposing electrodes (2) with isolating parts therebetween. The C 3000 B is. The C 3000 B is a second-generation “C 3000” condenser microphone. Size: 53 ø x 162 mm (2.1 ø x 6.4 In.) Optional accessories include the, B 18 battery power supply, and the W 414 wind screen, The, microphone is transformerless and accepts phantom powering, over the range from 9 volts to 52 volts dc. A bass cut switch provides a gentle, 6-dB per octave roll-off below 500 Hz, compensating for, proximity effect in vocal recording. Pattern/capsule selection: cardioid or hypercardioid. I feel this mic is less brittle-sounding than the C3000, but it still has a very open, spacious high end that complements its smooth, full mid-range nicely. In 2012, AKG relaunched the mic as the “C3000,” again identical to the original C 3000 B electret design; see sidebar links for details. This size helps shape response with the warmth, and transparency that are typical of other high-quality AKG. models. Max.
