Peluso Microphone Lab P-414 Multi-Pattern Condenser Mic
Modeled after the world-renowned AKG C414 EB, the Peluso Microphone Lab P-414 breathes new life into a classic microphone. Equipped with the highest quality modern components, the P-414 offers the best of both worlds—vintage vibe and cutting-edge technology. The P-414 perfectly captures the detailed mid-range and shimmering high-end that made engineers fall in love with the original.
A Modern Classic
Designed to recreate the unique charm of the C414 EB, the P-414 uses the same brass dual-backplate edge-terminated 34 mm capsule as the original. In addition to replicating the undeniable sonic character of this beloved mic, the P-414 also features a number of modern innovations.
The P-414 is equipped with state-of-the-art components to ensure very low self-noise—an essential trait in any modern microphone. It also introduces a generously sized transformer, eliminating interference and distortion, while offering a more balanced output.
A Piece of Studio History
The P-414 is a part of a long lineage of classic studio microphones. As audio technology began to evolve in the 1970s, microphone manufacturers began replacing tubes with transistors. Developed as a successor to the legendary AKG C12 microphone, the C414 was originally introduced in 1971. However, the C414 has gone through many iterations—perhaps more than any other microphone in history.
One of the most highly sought-after versions of this fabled mic is the C414 EB from 1976—the first to feature the original CK12-style brass capsule. The EB also featured a brass grille and body, offering unparalleled durability.
The P-414 works well in every situation you would use the original C414 EB, and then some. The brilliant top-end sounds great on vocals, drums, acoustic instruments and more.
