The D 3800 offers a combination of unsurpassed performance and exclusive features unmatched by any other dynamic vocal microphone. At the heart of the microphone is an AKG Maximum Flux neodymium transducer. This high-output element, coupled with a uniformly tight hypercardioid pickup pattern, provides exceptional gain-before-feedback right on top of loud stage monitors. The vocal contoured response rises gently starting at 2 kHz to pull vocals in front of the mix, while a close-in low end boost adds warmth. The patented MMS "Moving Magnet Suspension" system dramatically reduces unwanted mechanical/handling noise while a hum suppression coil neutralizes electrically induced interference.
The PowerGrip housing nestles naturally in the palm, and road tough construction assures never-say-die reliability. The built-in windscreen removes for cleaning with a twist of the locking bayonet- mount grill. The D 3800 S is identical to the D 3800 except for the addition of a noiseless recessed on/off switch.
