The legendary AKG C414 XLS is a large diaphragm condenser with capable of making every instrument and vocal in the house (full spectrum frequency response). Unless you sound like a snare drum (The C414 XLS has a Max SPL of 158dB with the pad applied all the way). Used by Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day to mic his guitar rig and in Ozzy Osbourne’s home recording studio. Comes with windscreen & shockmount. Oh, and we forgot to mention it’s brought home some hardware from AES 2009 and Sound on Sound 2011 and has been certified by METAlliance.
