Be aggressive, the C636 can take it
If you’ve ever tried to bring a studio mic on stage, you know they’re too delicate to stand up to the task. The C636 mic’s proprietary double shock suspension system greatly reduces handling noise, even during the most energetic on-stage performances. Its capsule sits on a highly absorbent rubber bearing, eliminating any structure-based noise, while an adjustable balancing network cancels vibrations over a wide frequency range. In addition, a substantial brass layer below the capsule serves as a counterweight that increases stability and delivers cleaner acoustics.
A new approach to broad-spectrum feedback rejection
The C636 essentially eliminates feedback by combining a uniform cardioid polar pattern throughout the entire frequency spectrum with a specially designed suspension and grille for the capsule. This unique approach to housing the capsule avoids unwanted sound reflections on the back of the capsule from stage sound sources, the most common cause of feedback in other microphones.
Triple pop noise protection
When AKG artists told us that “pops are the enemy,” we listened and incorporated a multi-layer protection system to provide singers with clear, plosive-free vocal performances. The protection system spares no expense and consists of the grille, a foam layer behind the grille and a magnetically attached computer-modeled mesh layer on top of the capsule. This triple-layer protection system is virtually unique to AKG and is not found in any microphone remotely near this price range.
Step on stage with a studio legend
The new AKG C636 is the legendary C535 updated for today’s rigorous live performance requirements. Offering the pure studio sound you’ve grown to love, housed in a worry-free durable housing, you can now focus on your vocal performance—not on the performance of your microphone. Spend a few minutes with the AKG C636, and you’ll realize you’ve never held a mic like this. Its proprietary double shock suspension system provides unparalleled rejection of handling noise. And the C636 doubles-down on keeping your performance flawless by incorporating a state-of-the-art, multi-layer pop noise rejection system that eliminates plosives and a consistent, cardioid polar pattern that eliminates feedback. Made with hand-selected components and manually tuned for a pure transparent tone, the new C636 retains the spirit of the classic AKG C535 condenser microphone, while being updated to meet the demands of today’s top vocal performers.
