The Golden Age
To begin with, we need to look back to the great-great-grandfather of the C414, the legendary AKG C12, which was launched in the 1950s. The C12 featured an extended high-frequency response without sounding strident and was based on a full-sized tube (the 12AY7/6072). It was quite literally a magic microphone for vocals and was also made as an OEM version for Telefunken, the ELAM 251.

The C414 EB came to market about five years later and finally did away with the integrated stand mount in favor of a built-in XLR connector. This did away with a potential failure point, and the microphone was a huge success for AKG. It also added a 2-position pad switch (-10 and -20) and a 3-position low roll-off switch.

This microphone has the CK12 Nylon Capsule and is well taken care of in a smoke free recording studio. I purchased this from the second owner that has had it since the early 90's. I currently am using the AKG C414 TL II and gonna stay with it for now. If you are looking for a lush sound with crystal clear mids and highs, then look no further. This is truly an amazing microphone for a 1970's vintage. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions. I also have a sound clip if you would like to hear it.
