Operating on the ‘pressure-gradient’ principle, which exposes both sides of the diaphragm to sound pressure in order to achieve a directional effect by various phase cancellations, these models have additional rear ports or openings, near the base of the microphone body which provide a long low frequency rear sound path to eliminate proximity effect the rise in bass response normally exhibited in close-up use of a cardioid mic.

Thanks for the comment, Methode! They don’t call it “The Rocket” for nuthin. AKG microphones are among the most respected and widely used in the field of professional audio, and there can be few, if any, studios that do not use some models from their extensive and varied range.

A wide-range dynamic, like thecan sometimes be usefully employed in preference v202 a condenser mic, for situations where the natural transient and frequency response of the condenser might result in a sound that is too ‘hard’ or ‘brittle’, such as with some types of tuned percussion notably vibes and with certain brass instruments, where overemphasis of upper harmonics, caused by close-miking, can cause much of the ‘warmth’ of the sound to be lost.

So they gave it to me! Applications The D performs well in all the areas where dynamic mics are traditionally preferred, such as close-miked drums, percussion and amplifiers, but it can also be used to good effect in the recording of brass and reed instruments, or the larger stringed instruments in multi-mic orchestral sessions.

While the D has xkg superior overall performance, the V202 still finds favour in many applications and might perhaps be considered more cost-effective in some situations; but both models have something to offer and would certainly make a most useful addition to any microphone collection.

Newer Post Older Post Home. The D is an odd little duck. Searchable archive of old, out-of-print music production magazines. Like the D, some LF handling noise is evident, although stand mounted use is envisaged for most recording applications. The specifications of the two models are so similar as to suggest that the D might offer little more than a cosmetic upgrade from the D, but in fact the HF response of the newer model seems subjectively better akgg and distinctly smoother.

The diaphragm assembly is protected by AKG’s very tough, but acoustically transparent ‘sintered bronze’ grille material, which is finished, like the body, in a non-reflective black.

Well, considering the amount of damage, not bad, and e202 the LF element is functional. Bottom snare sounds like it would work. The D shares most of the inherent qualities that have made the D popular in the broadcasting field, although its rather more stylish, but unobtrusive appearance suggests a greater suitability for TV work.

First manufactured in I have no idea when this particular mic was made, as there are no serial numbersit was AKG’s first dual element microphone. Like the D, this model is a two-way moving coil design, with separate transducers for high and low frequencies. If you’re enjoying the site, please consider supporting me to help build this archive It also seems to lead to a more fragile mic, with many complaints online of D’s being sold with busted LF elements.

This mic was given to me from a friend who runs a studio.

Again, the MD shows what a champ it is dealing with plosives, the suffering through almost as much as a naked SM Playing with mine, I wonder if it would sound good on high-hat Through scrapes, scuffs, and a big ole dent in the nose cone probably from a fall that dented the bronzeit’s still got a usable sound. However, the D, despite a styling and finish that give it the appearance of a scaled-downis not able to offer the same level of performance.

AKG Model D E1 and D

I think the D is a little closer to accurate, but reality is probably somewhere in between the and the Rather unusually, this mic is supplied with two foam windshields; under conditions where wind noise is a problem, additional protection is needed for the rear sound entry ports located just above the XLR connector, necessitating the fitting of a windshield at both ends of the mic!

Both these microphones use the ‘two-way’ technique developed by AKG as long akt asin which separate transducers are used for high and low frequencies, the outputs of the two elements being phased together by a built-in crossover network. The absence of any proximity effect is also useful in this application, as the v202 response does not alter when the distance between the mic and the drum head is changed, so it’s easy to experiment with different d2022 positions inside or just outside akv bass drum.

I don’t even know what sintering IS! A hum compensation coil is featured, to assist in rejecting induced interference, while mechanical noise, handling noise, floor vibration etc, or unwanted low frequency signal components, can all be reduced by a 50 Hz cut switch, which has -7 and dB positions.

AKG D202 – Classic Dynamic Microphone – Vintage

Within the two-way transducer system, the low frequency diaphragm handles only the 20 to Hz region, while the high frequency unit mounted in front of it, takes over from Hz up to the nominal 20 kHz upper limit of the response.

As in a two-way loudspeaker design, this enables the transducers size to be optimised for the particular range of frequencies that it is intended to handle, resulting in a large diaphragm for bass zkg and a smaller unit for high frequencies.

I’ve been getting my hands on some really fun old mics. D22 to that, it also didn’t fit in ANY standard sized mic holder, and just to use it they had to rig a shotgun shockmount.

A well controlled cardioid pick-up pattern is produced, in which the frequency response is independent of working distance, and off-axis colouration is minimised. The D continued to be in demand and has since been fully restored to the range. I don’t think it’s particularly honest anymore, but as an effect mic, or on certain voices or instruments, v202 still delivers d2022 interesting sound. Some Audio Guy July 30, at 1: The overall performance could be described as quite smooth and refined for a dynamic mic, with speech and acoustic instruments sounding clean and uncoloured, and percussion in particular having a fine incisive quality.

This is an additional coil, similar to the diaphragm coil, but wired out-of-phase; interference is picked up equally in both coils, but then cancelled out by the opposite phasing. Previous article in this issue: Also, I just want to thank coutant. Even though the low frequency element is working Akgg confirmed s202 rolling through the bass cutI sound a little hollow. Subjectively the D has a rather ‘neutral’ tonal character, with no particularly prominent mid-band colourations, and a response that seems well extended at both extremes, but particularly smooth at low frequencies.

Review by Dave Lockwood. In all, I was surprised at how well the AKG did. High frequency sound is captured under the nose cone, low frequency sound captured by the XLR connector, and the two elements communicating over a cross over which runs the length of the mic.
