The AKG C636 features three proprietary technologies that are designed to address several common problems singers face on stage, including feedback, handling noise, and pop noise. The C636 is designed to eliminate feedback by combining a uniform cardioid polar pattern throughout the entire frequency spectrum with a specially-designed suspension and grille for the capsule. This approach to housing the capsule avoids unwanted sound reflections on the back of the capsule, ensuring feedback and spill over rejection. The C636 also integrates a double shock suspension system, reducing unwanted handling noise. The capsule sits on a highly absorbent rubber bearing that eliminates any structure-based noise, while an adjustable balancing network cancels vibrations over a wide frequency range. As well, a multilayer protection system prevents unwanted pop noises. For more information, contact SC Media Canada: 514-780-0808, FAX 514-518-5643,, 50 PROFESSIONAL SOUND
