Handheld Supercardioid Dynamic Microphone

The AKG Model D 3800M is a rugged dynamic supercardioid microphone intended for on-stage vocal pickup. The microphone utilizes AKG's patented VariMotion system that allows the response of the transducer to be tweaked during its molding process and features a diaphragm of varying thickness. Its polar pattern is uniform with frequency, and response has been tailored at mid and high frequencies to deliver improved speech intelligibility.

The microphone capsule is shock-mounted using AKG's Double-flex shock mount system and is protected by an easily-removable wire mesh grille. The D 3800M also incorporates a humbucking coil to minimize noise from electrical interference. The D 3800M has a modular output which allows the microphone to be used with a standard non-switched or with a silent on-off switch (D 3800MS) with 3-pin XLR-type output or with the AKG TM 40 module to create a wireless microphone compatible with WMS 40 series receivers. The D 3800M's smooth triangular shape and soft-touch paint finish makes it secure and comfortable to hold. The lightweight body is die-cast zinc alloy and has a black matte finish for minimum reflection and glare.
