C 419
Wind Instrument Micromic
The AKG C 419 is response tailored for use with both brass

compensates for proximity effect and the high frequency boost
adds presence and clarity. Its hypercardioid polar pattern gives
the C 419 additional isolation from floor monitors and other
The microphone is small, light weight, and can be easily
clipped to the bell of an instrument. The flexible gooseneck
allows for precise capsule placement, while the rubber-tipped
clamp ensures secure mounting and protects the instrument
from damage. The C 419 features a 10 ft. (3 meter) cable
terminated with an XLR-M connector. It accepts phantom
voltages over the range of 9 to 52 volts. The C 419 L is
terminated with a TA3-F, mini-XLR connector compatible with
AKG wireless bodypack transmitters or the optional, B 29 L
battery operated phantom power supply.
