    AKG C555L Condenser Microphone

    Posted by James Walker on Feb 2nd 2011

    The AKG C555L was a replacement for the same model that was recently misplaced.... when you work with teenagers, it is sometimes better not to ask what happened. The C555L is our head-worn microphone of choice for our professional presenters as well as our teenage instructors. It works well with our wireless gear and is reasonably rugged. Very acceptable sound quality. No problems with our three units... except the one that mysteriously disappeared. Great service and a competitive price from Front End Audio. We are a not for profit organization that provides training programs for Scouts and other youth organizations... we do appreciate a low price and good service on name brand equipment.
