Perfect for anything with fine high detail.

The Miktek C5 pencil condenser provides audio engineers with a valuable new tool for recording acoustic instruments. The C5, fitted with Miktek’s MK5a, 0.5-inch cardioid capsule, produces a super-linear, full-bodied response. The capsule employs a 5-micron tensioned Mylar diaphragm, on which a 0.5-micron layer of evaporated gold is applied. Tight tolerances and special attention to precise machining of the back plate and acoustical porting, produces an off-axis response that ensures the accuracy of the microphone. The MK5b omnidirectional capsule is included.

The C5’s head amplifier was designed around the AMI T5 transformer. Together with the implementation of high quality components including hand-selected transistors, it offers a sweet response reminiscent of the iconic classic mics of the past. The Miktek C5 is perfect for recording acoustic instruments including violin, acoustic guitar, mandolin, brass, woodwind, and piano. The C5 produces excellent results on drums as overheads or hi-hat mics.

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 serialized frequency response graph created during final testing.
