The AKG C518 Instrument Microphone is a professional miniature clamp-on microphone, the ultimate tool for recording of drums and percussion. Its cardioid polar pattern rejects over spill from nearby instruments.

The AKG C518 Instrument Microphone's continuously adjustable vise-type clamp makes it easy to fix the microphone securely on the rim of drums or percussion instruments. A special snap-on stabilizer keeps the gooseneck in a defined position. The MPAV from AKG C518 M features an integrated, switchable bass cut for adjusting the microphone's frequency response. The AKG C518 ML package includes a mini-XLR cable and the unique A400 adapter plate for easy mounting onto wireless body-pack transmitters PT40/45/450/470.
