A studio staple. All Nuemann microphones have such tight tolerances that you could use a 10-yr old mic with a brand new one for an accurate stereo spread – unheard of with any other brand.
This vintage, brass capsule, C414 is a wonder to record with. Unlike modern versions with nylon capsules, the C414 EB is still highly sought after the world over.
Sony C100 boasts, not one but, two condenser diaphragms, to increase the accuracy of low- and high-frequency recordings. Good news for female vocalists or anyone looking for some extra shine. More from Sony

Instrument Mic Collection
Our collection of instrument microphones are well-known workhorses. We strive for quality over quantity in all areas, especially in regard to our microphones. All of our mics are extremely versatile and can accommodate most, if not all, situations.
|AKG C414 xLII Stereo Set|
Introductions are needless for this workhorse. They are great for miking amps, guitars, strings, woodwinds, drums, overheads, pianos…and, can’t forget, vocals.
A discontinued mic that is straight out of the golden era of recording. Manufactured by RCA, it is a vintage cardoid ribbon mic that is great for miking high spl sources like guitar amps. The end result is an insanely clean, finished sound.
Our Royer R10 is our favorite for woodwinds, brass, guitar and more. Unlike vintage ribbon microphones, it is very robust. This means ribbon richness can be added anywhere!
Serving as our exclusive kick drum microphone, the Audix D6 is a dynamic microphone that delivers a deep and punchy bass drum.
Known as THE tom microphone, the MD421II not only produces great tone on tom drums, but also has remarkable rejection of other instruments. This is a must have for drum miking.
The SM57 doesn’t need an introduction. It is THE snare microphone — it perfectly shields the lows of the kick and the highs of the crash, delivering a perfect snare tone.
A stereo set of small diaphragm condenser mics that are perfect for overheads, or for getting extra attack on an acoustic guitar. These microphones deliver a crisp high end.
This ubiquitous microphone is known by most all musicians. Ours are used for talk back miking or for miking hi-hats or can be used to add to the room ambience.
