This microphone was designed as a condenser microphone for stage use by female vocalists. It was offered in colors tastefully chosen for the target group (not. they look terrible) and with an EQ curve that was supposed to sound mixed and not too feedback-prone (never qute worked for us that way).

When we started the studio with a very limited array of microphones we did however realize that his makes for a more than decent microphone for the top of a Snare Drum - the EQ curve works, the high rear rejection is a nice bonus and the construction (apparently AKG thought all women have TINY hands) means that it can be fit nicely into a dense drum setup.
