E-mail Print PDF

For his enviable high-profile gig —he’s currently playing in the horn section with Prince– tenor saxophonist Keith Anderson relies on the AKG C519 professional miniature clip-on condenser microphone. The AKG C519 microphone clips gently onto the bell of a saxophone, trumpet or any other wind instrument. Its tight cardioid polar pattern makes the C519 ideal for use near monitor wedges, and its flat 20Hz-20kHz frequency response makes it ideal for woodwind and brass instruments. The C519 can be used with a variety of wireless body-pack transmitters.
