AKG recently introduced the new GN 155 CHOIR, a nonhanging microphone comprising a 62-inch gooseneck module mounted onto a 15-pound, shock-isolated telescoping clutch stand that is height-adjustable from six to nine feet.
All five AKG Discreet Series microphone capsules—the CK 31 cardioid capsule, the CK 32 omnidirectional capsule, the CK 33 hypercardioid capsule, the CK 80 speech-optimized hypercardioid capsule and the CK 47 hypercardioid short shotgun capsule—are compatible for mounting onto the GN 155 CHOIR. A status LED at the capsule-mounting point illuminates when phantom power is applied to the microphone. The GN 155 CHOIR, which comes in a matte gray finish, includes a 33-foot cable that terminates in a 3-pin XLR-type connector. Within the XLR connector are two jumpers that may be removed to switch off the gooseneck’s LED and/or engage a 6dB/octave @ 200Hz highpass filter. Price: $425.
