Tony MacAlpine, Hangar, Noturnall about AKG microphones:

Tony MacAlpine - AKG C414

"I've been working with AKG microphones for over 10 years. All my records and DVDs (award-winning) have the signature of the AKG sound. The definition of the depth of my drums, the weight of my bass drum, the brilliance of my snare drum, and the crystal-clear sound of my cymbals, are directly connected to the choice of my microphones. Regardless of the musical style, the sound of the drums is what really matters, and my sound is AKG.“
