A great mic IMO and any producer,artist,engineer can get good results from this mic! Now Ill just say, this mic is a mic that sounds really good on some stuff, and some voices or sources wont suit this mic! Not to say it'll sound bad, but certain sources will take alot if post production to sound good in the mix! Now why did I buy this and what would I reccomend this for? Majority of Male rap Vox will sound good on this mic, and this is a killer mic for drum overheads and room mics! Now, this mic will sound good on other things too, and can be a workhorse in alot of ways, but I reccomend it for those things! I have gotten good results on guitar and bass cabs, but there are other mics I would pick over this! Basically mics are flavours and eq tools, and the C214 flavour is nice on Male Rap vox and Drum OH's and Drum Rooms!

Compliments the low mids of a voice quite well with out too much of a roll off. Amazing shine in the mid highs with a slight boost giving an airy character. I love this mic.

I own a few AKG mics now. This mic is very affordable and provides a professional large sound. It does tend to smooth out the vocalist voice which works really great in certain instances. In comparison to a C414B XLII & C414 XLS its somewhere right inbetween both models. Try it with a monster p500 xlr cable and it sounds just right! Thats my take. RLM.

So this was the year I started to discover the wonderful world of recording and engineering. There is alot to learn and alot of money to be spent. So learning isn't a problem and money well as a musician in Canada there's not alot of that floating around! So i started researching vocal microphones. My vocalist kept going on about the AKG C414 - which is legendary! So i started researching and pricing the units. Then i stumbled across the AKG C214. Basically the same diaphram for the mic as the 414 without a polar pattern and it's not double sided. So after some consideration I said why not buy it! I've had the mic now for 6 months and it is very transparent. My vocalist has been extremely pleased with the vocals we have been able to produce straight into the board. It's incredibly sensitive to the most minute positioning of your mouth and the colour of your voice! In my opinion you can not go wrong by owning one of these mics! It has been a pleasant and affordable mic! And hey its made in the same factory as the 414 so that should say something about itself! Trevor

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 flat rate up to $2,000 of current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years.
  • BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the current new selling price above $2,000.
  • WOODWINDS: 4% of the current new selling price above $2,000.
