AKG's new ELLE C mic is just for the ladies. AKG has done studies of woman vocalists; they discovered the optimum acoustical requirements and the aesthetic preferences of female performers. The slightly thinner Elle C condenser microphone fits easier in her hand and yet produces an accurate and natural sound. It features an XLR connector module with 24-carat gold-plated pins for better connectivity and resistance to corrosion and humidity. The spring steel wire-mesh grill is extra rugged and reliably controls pops and wind noise that interfere with soft and emotive singing.

The ELLE C microphone features a frequency range of 60Hz to 20kHz and a max SPL rating of 145dB. This mic requires phantom powering and the transducer comes in a premium 24-carat gold plated case. The ELLE is said to complement the female voice while presenting a slender and elegant silhouette. This lightweight (9.2 oz) microphone has a low self-noise of just 25dB-A, a sensitivity rating of 4mV/Pa (-48dBV) and is available in either a high-gloss metallic or white pearlescent finish.

ELLE C sells for $339MSRP and comes with a PB 1000 Presence Boost Adapter, SA 45 stand adapter and zippered carrying bag. Optional accessories include the B 18 battery powered phantom power supply, H 30 Shock mount, various stands and adapters, and windscreens. For more information, contact AKG at
