AKG D202E ‘Sound Rocket’ (1967-1980s) An icon of 60s design by Ernst Graf.
A revolutionary design using plastic and sintered bronze, this twin capsule mic is terrific on toms,snare and most percusssion.
Fantastic frequency response (almost flat 30hz-18khz) …..Its a dynamic that thinks its a condenser! Very popular with 70s Heavy Rockers.
Chosen by the BBC for the British House of Commons the AKG D222 is very similar to the D202, with superb off-axis frequency response, allowing the speaker plenty of scope for ducking and weaving and dodging the issue!
