This Akg C34 is a lovely small capsule XY pattern stereo microphone. Originally, this example was set for ms recording. One capsule has had its back disconnected ( it may be damaged) and now the Mic is functional for XY stereo recording. Great on Piano, Drum Overheads, strings, acoustic instruments of any type. In any live situation, this mic will yield outstanding results. Comes with custom mogami output cable, and shock mount.
