Handheld Condenser Microphone
Be aggressive, the C636 can take it
If you’ve ever tried to bring a studio mic on stage, you know they're too delicate to stand up to the task. The C636 mic's proprietary double shock suspension system greatly reduces handling noise, even during the most energetic on-stage performances. Its capsule sits on a highly absorbent rubber bearing, eliminating any structure-based noise, while an adjustable balancing network cancels vibrations over a wide frequency range. In addition, a substantial brass layer below the capsule serves as a counterweight that increases stability and delivers cleaner acoustics.
A new approach to broad-spectrum feedback rejection
The C636 essentially eliminates feedback by combining a uniform cardioid polar pattern throughout the entire frequency spectrum with a specially designed suspension and grille for the capsule. This unique approach to housing the capsule avoids unwanted sound reflections on the back of the capsule from stage sound sources, the most common cause of feedback in other microphones.
Triple pop noise protection
When AKG artists told us that "pops are the enemy," we listened and incorporated a multi-layer protection system to provide singers with clear, plosive-free vocal performances. The protection system spares no expense and consists of the grille, a foam layer behind the grille and a magnetically attached computer-modelled mesh layer on top of the capsule. This triple-layer protection system is virtually unique to AKG and is not found in any microphone remotely near this price range.
World-famous AKG condenser sound quality
For 70 years, AKG has pioneered the art of premium studio-quality sound, and we understand it's what's inside that counts. Continuing this legacy, the C636 microphone features a custom-tuned cardioid condenser capsule with hand-selected components that maintains the coveted C535 uncompressed sound. That means you can capture your performance with unfiltered and nuanced studio fidelity, whether you're on stage in a small club or one of the world's largest stadiums.
With extremely rugged zinc alloy construction and a spring steel grille, the C636 stands up to the most demanding tour schedules. And its 24-karat gold-plated capsule protects the microphone against moisture and corrosion. Just focus on your performance - the C636 will take care of the rest, night after night.
