What We Think

"John Peluso has already made a name for himself in the world of pro audio having released a number of incredibly faithful recreations of several classic favorites. In light of this, we were anxious to get our hands on the Peluso P-414. Drawing from the classic AKG C-414 EB design and capsule, the P-414 has all the great things we love about the original C-414. The natural warmth and tonal character found in the old brass CK12 capsules of the C-414 EB has been a sought-after component in studios worldwide for decades. The mid range is impeccably accurate and the highs are detailed without the harshness of some of the newer attempts. Consistent with the vintage EB models, the P-414 features a robust mid-range with an incredibly detailed high-end all while maintaining a natural musicality. In a shootout alongside a tried and true AKG C-414 XLS, the P-414 exhibits a favorable liveliness and sounded much more natural than its competition. So essentially, what you have here is a classic-sounding C-414 EB at a mere fraction of the price!"

Manufacturer's Description from Peluso

John Peluso has a deep respect for AKG and the microphone innovations they have pioneered. As tubes were widely replaced by transistors in the 1970's the 414 replaced the C 12. Looking over the long and complicated lineage of the 414, we wanted to reproduce what has been most loved about this fabled classic. Peluso drew heavily from the 1976 EB version with the original CK12-style brass capsule. This brass dual-backplate edge-terminated 34mm capsule gave AKG microphones the detailed mid-range and shimmering high-end air they are most loved for. Four polar patterns gave it additional versatility. The highest quality modern components ensure a very low self-noise, essential in a modern microphone. Peluso achieves their balanced output with a generously sized transformer, eliminating interference and distortion. When it came to the design of the body and head grille Peluso knew durability was of paramount importance. They crafted the head grille, body and stem all of heavy brass and steel for maximum durability. This microphone is just as much at home in front of a passionate vocalist as it is a heavy metal drum kit. The Peluso P-414 is truly bringing the very best aspects of vintage sound to new life.
