NUDE 414 – We tip our hat to the Golden Era of condenser microphone design.

Our homage to AKG's halcyon period through the 1980s. The NUDE 414 channels the legendary EB/BULS lineage. At its heart lies a Class A discrete transformer coupled circuit driven by a dual diaphragm transducer design. Seamlessly select from five polar patterns.  This microphone is built like a tank, feels weighty and satisfying to hold in the hand. Sonically, its oozing character in spades – that classic 80’s subtly darker lusciousness but alive & present through the high end. Designed for versatility, it's the ideal choice for capturing the intricate detail: Great choice for drums, guitars & amps, percussion or the resonant beauty of a grand piano. It ships in a sturdy flight case with a custom suspension mount.
