The AKG C518ML is a high quality, miniature microphone designed for capturing drums and percussion instruments for crucial recording and live sound applications. The C518ML features an adjustable vice that allows mounting on the top ring of toms, snare drums, congas, and much more.

The cardioid polar pattern reduces feedback and minimises noise and leakage that may occur from adjacent instruments. An adjustable gooseneck provides stable microphone placement and a low-cut filter reduces low-frequency noise, rumble, etc. The C518ML is sure to be an efficient tool for crucial recording, project studio recording and live sound reinforcement.
