Listing Detail Tabs

The D550 is a unidirectional dynamic microphone with a high-output neodymium transducer. It is extremely rugged and can be mounted on stands or instruments. It is designed primarily for tough onstage use on bass instruments including kick drum, tuba, trombone, bass amps, etc. and uses a patented AKG Varimotion diaphragm. The wide frequency response of this microphone slightly emphasizes the mid and high frequencies to ensure a powerful sound.

The D550 has a cardioid polar response. This means the microphone is most sensitive to sound arriving from in front of it, less sensitive to sound arriving from the sides, and hardly responds to sound from the rear. This pickup pattern is virtually the same for all frequencies ("frequency independent").

The strong plastic housing and the wire-mesh outer grille of the D550 protect the transducer system from damage. The outer grille and a layer of special fabric beneath it form a very effective windscreen to suppress pop and wind noise.

An integrated stand adapter provides for precise microphone alignment with the instrument.

The D550 has been discontinued and they are hard to find, particularly a new one like this. Comes with a cary bag and two small mounting extensions.
