The AKG D40 professional instrumental microphone with its solid all-metal body will stand up to the hardships of night-after-night onstage use with a smile. Its patented Varimotion diaphragm uses a unique laminated material to damp high resonance peaks, leading to a quantum leap in audio performance. The transducer is protected by a sturdy wire-mesh cap and can take extremely high sound pressure levels with ease.
The D40 features a cardioid polar pattern which is effective in minimizing off-axis feedback and noise by providing a focused pickup pattern. The patented AKG Varimotion diaphragm enhances audio quality and results in pristine audio reproduction.
The all metal construction and steel-mesh grille make the D40 rugged and able to withstand the rigors of life on the road. An integrated stand adapter and standard H 440 mounting bracket are included for mounting onto snare drums, tom-toms, etc.
