Awesome

Comments about AKG C 418 Drum Condenser Microphone:

I love these mics. I won 4 of them for about 8 years now and have had wonderful luck. A couple of them have needed repair from sloppy drummers but overall they have heald up very well with lots of hours on them. I have used them mostly for live sound with some guest engineers very excited to try them and usually pretty pleased afterwards. I have used most anything there is for drums and would put this at the top of the list.

Comments about AKG C 418 Drum Condenser Microphone:

These actually sound rather good, when they're working. I've owned 5 of them at this point and 3 have failed on me, they simply aren't built to last, and they seem to fail for no reason whatsoever. But when they do work, they sound good on toms, hi hat (I clip one to a gooseneck on a stand for this) and snare bottom. I would recommend trying other clip mics before these, and I'm actually an AKG fan.

Comments about AKG C 418 Drum Condenser Microphone:

I played these mics in Australia once for a week straight and by the time I was done playing the last show I wanted to throw them away, they sound really good but the clamp is just to flimsy and weak, if you can figure out a better way of clamping them on the kit then get them.
