The Miktek C7e is an articulate, clear sounding LDC workhorse that's great for instrument recordings and vocals that need to cut through a mix. With enough low end response (and enough headroom) to stand in front of a kick drum and a clear and detailed enough top end to capture every emotion of a violin soloist, the Miktek C7e can stand up to nearly any challenge a studio session will throw at it. In addition to its natural and clear tone, the C7e packs a lot of features that help it adapt to various scenarios. With switchable cardioid, figure 8 and omni-directional polar patterns, you can tweak the response and pick up of the mic and the hi pass filter helps you isolate instruments and voices from the low frequency rumble of a nearby bass amp. The onboard pad will assist when capturing loud sources or when trying to juice more color out of your mic preamp, and don't overlook the internal voltage switch, which can further extend the top and bottom response and make the mic more even responsive!

The Miktek C7e, multi-pattern, large diaphragm FET condenser will impress the most critical listeners and inspire artists to create their best performance. The microphone’s pick-up characteristic is selectable; offering cardioid, omni and bidirectional patterns. In addition, the C7e 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 C7 really excels on vocal applications.
C7e utilizes the new MK7 capsule developed by Miktek engineers, featuring dual 1-inch diaphragms made using 5-micron Mylar with a 0.4-micron layer of evaporated gold. Diaphragms are then precisely tensioned, mounted to carefully- tuned backplates, and finally set back-to-back, with electronic isolation, to create the finished capsule.
The C7e’s head amplifier has been designed around the AMI T7 transformer and, together with the implementation of high-quality components including hand-selected transistors, offers a sweet response reminiscent of highly desirable vintage microphones.
