Small diaphragm condensor mics are always a hot topic of debate with engineers and to weigh into the argument, the Miktek C5 throws another valuable new tool into the mix.
As you'd expect the C5 excels for drum overhead and acoustic guitar duties but is also perfect for recording acoustic instruments including violin, mandolin, dobro, brass, woodwind, and piano. What you may not expect is the quality and refined sound that the C5 delivers; a super linear, full bodied response.
The C5’s head amplifier has been designed around the AMI T5 transformer and, together with the implementation of high quality components including hand-selected transistors, offers a sweet response reminiscent of the iconic classic small diaphragm condensor mics of the past.
The C5MPs also currently ship with the Miktek omni capsules at no extra charge.
The Miktek C5 is hand built using components from the US, Europe and Asia, and is tested and packaged in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Each microphone includes its serialised frequency response graph created during final testing.
