AKG C 414

Condenser mic with 4 selectable polar patterns (carioid, figure-8, omnidirectional, and hypercardioid), 0/-10/-20 dB attenuation selector, and 3-position bass rolloff switch (at 0, 75 and 150Hz, 12dB/octave).
[product page (discontinued)]

Used to mic Jimmy's drum kits. "I go to microphones as far as how I want the drums to sit dimensionally in the track. If I want the drums up front and aggressive, I’ll use a lot of AKG C 414s so they sit in front of things dimensionally. If I want the drums to sit in a rhythm section configuration, I’ll lean back towards the 414s and maybe some Shure SM98s. Then maybe go for Shure 12As on the bigger drums." [EQ Mag]
