AKG C414B ULS TL - classic transformerless 414 microphone - nice condition
Here we have a C414B ULS-TL microphone from an era when the benefits of transformerless design were gaining popularity; offering comparably lower distortion figures at high SPL than their transformer coupled cousins. This 414 was used mainly for piano recordings, it ships with the original box and clip.
THIS MICROPHONE IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.
The story of the AKG C414 is long and convoluted; chapters within chapters. The ULS 'Ultra Linear Series' was introduced in 1986, the 'TL' series being manufactured a few years thereafter. As theTL11 series was introduced in 1993 I reckon the microphone on offer would have been manufactured somewhere between 1989 and 1991.
