I got a pair for overhead, room, whatever. Used it on female alto and it captured everything perfectly. Very balanced and useable.

AKG Perception 420 is great all arounder. With great range of options, this is must have mic for any budget project studio. It is condenser microphone with large capsule, capable of omni, cardioid and figure of eight characteristics.

I bought this mic two days ago and I started using right away. The sound is clear and great, I was expecting less from it. It is built on a firm material and so is the shock mouth. I used it with the Scarlett 2i4 second generation interface and the sound is absolutely amazing.

I have used the perception series mics for years - mostly the 420. This mic provides everything I need in a project studio setting - great sound, build quality, all at a very resonable price point.
