The Peluso P-414 is a solid-state multi-pattern large diaphragm condenser microphone inspired by the vintage 1976 AKG C414 EB, incorporating the original CK12-style brass capsule. This brass dual-backplate edge-terminated 34mm capsule gave AKG microphones the detailed mid-range and shimmering high-end air they are most renowned for.
The Peluso P-414 has four polar patterns (hyper-cardioid, cardioid, omni and Fig 8) making it suitable for a wide range of recording applications.
The microphone is built using the highest quality modern components ensuring very low self-noise and includes a large transformer to remove interference and distortion. The body and head grille are made in-house out of heavy brass and steel for maximum durability.
The Peluso P-414 revives all the best qualities of a vintage classic - delivering excellent sonic performance and manufactured using reliable modern manufacturing methods for enhanced serviceability.
It ships in a durable carry case and includes a dedicated shockmount and pouch.
Acoustically matched pairs are available on request.
