Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphones are essential to every mic locker. They are the ideal choice for recording vocals, as they often capture a much wider frequency range than a small diaphragm condenser. They are also the most desirable mic for capturing “air” in a vocal performance, making you feel like you’re in the same room as the performer. Models such as the Neumann U87, Neumann U47, AKG 414, AKG C12, Aston Spirit, or Bock Audio 251 are a perfect place to start when adding to your collection. Paired with a great compressor, you are on the right track to recording world class vocals.

Not only for vocals, a large diaphragm condenser can be used for miking a guitar, miking orchestral instruments, as a room mic, or miking a bass guitar cabinet. When miking an acoustic guitar, try an AKG 414 on its omni polar pattern, this will capture all the small details of the performance, and provide a wide, warm sound in the mix. When miking up drums, try throwing a pair of Neumann U87s in the back of the room, this will capture the space around the drum set, and make you feel like you are in the room with the player. Throw those through a compressor like an 1176 to add excitement and attitude of the kit.

When miking an orchestral ensemble, try using a pair of AKG C12s in the room. With their silky top end, and forward presence in the mid-range, you can capture all the fine details of the orchestra, while also capturing the room they are playing in, add a little reverb and make any room sound like carnegie hall.

To get the full sound of your bass guitar, try using a Neumann U47 on the front of your cabinet. With the U47s ability to capture frequencies as low as 20 Hz, get a perfect representation of the rig you spent all that money on. Pair that with an Acme Motown DI to get that classic Motown bass sound.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
Matthew R.
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
Ryan F.
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
Martin C.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
James P.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.
Noa L.
You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
Robby T.
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
Jake D.
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Rob M.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
