AKG D2300s Microphone ("s" is for the switch); Hypercardioid dynamic with switch, 20' XLR/XLR balanced mic cable, stand adapter, large wind screen, and older AKG box. This is one of the last Austrian made AKG microphone models. Since H-K purchased the company and closed the factory in Austria, the newly manufactured mics are now made overseas. This mic is in terrific shape - I bought it years ago, and it has had light use in my home studio and my English class room. I do not know why, but there is no D2300 marking on the mic. Also, lots of talk exists about the differences between the D2200 and the D2300... except for the ball cap shape, I cannot tell of any difference in the sound... some speculate that the D2300 is just an upgrade in manufacturing or parts from the D2200; this could be true for an inspection of the capsules shows the exact same unit in both. But, this one is Austrian made and AKG quality and performance, not an offshore copy.
I used to be an AKG dealer in the Detroit area years ago; now, I am a teacher in the Atl. area, but I still use gear in my teaching practice. I have a number of these and don't need them all, so I decided to let it go. There's not a mark on this mic, even where the cable is plugged in. The depth and fullness of the microphone is spectacular. One of the main characteristics of AKG mics that you will appreciate is that they will respond to whatever you adjust on the board without noise, fuzz, and hiss. It is mainly designed for voice with a range of 80Hz. to 20kHz.; however, it is versatile enough for other uses such as strings, guitars, woodwinds, and percussion. Its construction is heavy metal and a barrel capsule for the electronics. Although the switch is not labeled "silent" it is pretty quiet. The mic is low impedance, and typically, AKG is 200 or 250 ohms (very low resistance, less noise and interference). Also, the SPL rating is very high, over 150.
I include with this mic a 20 foot XLR/XLR cable, a flexible stand adapter with metal threads, some "shower caps" for dust cover - wind screens are not usually needed on these mics, there are two built in, but I include one anyway.
This mic in excellent cosmetic and operational condition... no dents, scratches, or gouges; no funny little European din connectors - this is a standard XLR 3-pin connector. Here's an excellent front solo mic, an excellent pulpit mic for a church with feedback issues, business, performance, vocals/speech for podcasts/home recordings and/or professional use.

Thanks for looking and reading....
