Furthermore, the AKG P820 Tube comes complete with a remote power supply with a rotary switch. Letting you select from 9 individual polar patterns, including; Omnidirectional (Fully Counter-Clockwise), Cardioid (Center), and Figure-8 (Fully Clockwise). Within those settings, you’ll find six intermediate patterns with dented switch positions. So you can easily reproduce your desired settings within the heat of a session. On top of that, the gorgeous sonics and high SPL capabilities of the P820 make it the go-to studio mic for a number of recording applications.
