The Miktek C1 is an outstanding studio workhorse Large Diaphragm. it's a very balanced and natural sounding FET mic that will always sound either good or great on any instrument or voice you throw at it. If the C1 shares space in a mic locker with more expensive, more colored mics it may not win every shootout but it will always be a mic you can count on to work well on any source. Think of the C1 as a blank slate; capture your source in all its glory, and add color and shape after you've captured the perfect take.
The Miktek C1 large-diaphragm FET condenser will impress the most critical listeners and inspire artists to create their best performance. The microphone features a tightly controlled cardioid pick up pattern. In addition, the C1 employs a high-pass filter and –10dB pad for recording loud sound sources.
The frequency response is warm on the bottom and silky-sweet on the top, yet at the same time, the midrange is natural and open. The microphone produces amazing results when recording acoustic instruments, guitar amps, or as overheads on a drum kit. But of course, the C1 really excels on vocal applications.
The C1 utilizes the new MK1 capsule developed by Miktek engineers, featuring dual 1-inch diaphragms made using 5-micron Mylar with a 0.4-micron layer of evaporated gold. The diaphragm is precisely tensioned and mounted to a carefully tuned backplate to create the finished capsule.
