The AKG C 519M clips easily onto the bell of a trumpet, saxophone, trombone, tuba, digeridoo or other wind instrument and captures its sound perfectly. The microphone features a cardioid condenser capsule that is encased in metal and attached to a gooseneck with a strong, flexible shock mount. The shock mount greatly minimizes noise and vibration ensuring that the mic only picks up the desired signal. The clip for the microphone is strong enough to stay attached to the instrument, yet is finished in a soft-touch rubber that won't hurt the finish of the instrument.

The C 519M also features a detachable output cable with a locking connector to make transportation and setup easier - simply place and aim the microphone on the instrument and then attach the output cable. The C 519M's sound is accurate and detailed and the pickup pattern is optimized to ensure that it doesn't pick up anything other than what it is aimed at. A switchable bass cut filter on the output connector helps minimize boominess with baritone saxes or other instruments with low-end response.

Very Prompt Shipping


Within a couple days, the microphone was delivered. Trumpet/sax/trombone mics are kind of the forgotten child of live sound gear, but the AKG is a solid device to buy sight unseen. Price point is good, and the sound quality is perfectly usable for the needs of most people. Naturally, a mic that costs $1000 is going to be a little more precise, but for the average person rushing on stage with all sorts of perils on the gig (like myself), this is a great choice. Works great in top 40 groups, reggae/ska, trop rock, etc.
