Vintage AKG C414 w/ CK12 Brass Capsule

Post by Seth81 » Wed Jun 05, 2013 10:52 pm

I have an Original AKG C414 with CK12 Capsule up for sale. It's in good condition and clean. It includes a custom fit AKG hard case. I've owned it for about a year and I just haven't used it too much.

This is your chance at a semi rare Mic in good shape. Just to clarify it's the Original C414 (coming in after the C412) .. Story of the AKG C414


I tried to take off the screen of this Mic to show the capsule, but it seems to be a bit difficult and I don't know much about electronics and don't want to damage anything. You should be able to see the Brass CK-12 Capsule in the last photo. I'll guarantee that it is what I say it is.

Here's another good guide highlighting the difference between the Nylon and Brass Capsules, with some photos in the middle of the post - ... 14-eb.html

This looks interesting.

I have never seen a silver and black color schemed 414 in my life.
Is it all original?
From the serial number, It seems to be a very early 414.
What connector does it have? Either 414C or 414E would be the designation.

Howling at the neighbors. Hoping they have more mic cables.

yeah, it looks as if somebody managed to put a more modern XLR bottom on it.
