Yeah that sounds about right. Bottom snare sounds like it would work. Playing with mine, I wonder if it would sound good on high-hat Thanks for the comment, Methode!
Contact Me. I've been getting my hands on some really fun old mics. This mic was given to me from a friend who runs a studio. Sat in a box, it didn't sound all that great compared to the Neumanns they use , and no one even knew what it was as all the badges "we no need no stinking BADGERS!
Add to that, it also didn't fit in ANY standard sized mic holder, and just to use it they had to rig a shotgun shockmount. No fun at all So they gave it to me! The D is an odd little duck. First manufactured in I have no idea when this particular mic was made, as there are no serial numbers , it was AKG's first dual element microphone. High frequency sound is captured under the nose cone, low frequency sound captured by the XLR connector, and the two elements communicating over a cross over which runs the length of the mic.
This process leads to a directional mic with almost no proximity effect. It also seems to lead to a more fragile mic, with many complaints online of D's being sold with busted LF elements. They don't call it "The Rocket" for nuthin. I don't even know what sintering IS! Sintering is traditionally used for manufacturing ceramic objects, and has also found uses in such fields as powder metallurgy.
Well, considering the amount of damage, not bad, and surprisingly the LF element is functional. I broke out some Aesop this time, instead of my usual Poe, and did a comparison between this Rocket, and my new dynamic sweet-heart the MDU I did compress in post, then mixed down to Kbps MP3.
I sound a lot thicker on the MD at this distance. Even though the low frequency element is working I confirmed by rolling through the bass cut , I sound a little hollow. I think the D is a little closer to accurate, but reality is probably somewhere in between the and the Again, the MD shows what a champ it is dealing with plosives, the suffering through almost as much as a naked SM Off axis rejection was about equal surprisingly enough.
That's pretty impressive considering the the D's lack of proximity. Could it be an issue of durability? In all, I was surprised at how well the AKG did. Through scrapes, scuffs, and a big ole dent in the nose cone probably from a fall that dented the bronze , it's still got a usable sound.
I don't think it's particularly honest anymore, but as an effect mic, or on certain voices or instruments, it still delivers an interesting sound. Two last notes. Also, I just want to thank coutant.
