Miktek C7e Large Diaphragm Multi-Pattern Microphone

The Miktek C7e Large Diaphragm Multi-Pattern Microphone, a hand-assembled large diaphragm FET microphone that is sure to impress!

Miktek C7e Large Diaphragm Multi-Pattern Microphone Details

The Miktek C7e, multi-pattern, large diaphragm FET condenser will impress the most critical listeners and inspire artists to create their best performance. The microphoneâ??s pick-up characteristic is selectable; offering cardioid, omni and bidirectional patterns. In addition, the C7e employs a high-pass filter and â?"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 C7e really excels on vocal applications.

The 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 C7eâ??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.

In addition, the innovated head amplifier design features a unique circuit that allows the engineer to switch the capsule bias voltage from +48 to +60 volts. This proprietary circuit implementation essentially provides the mic with two voices; allowing you to choose between a classic and modern microphone. At +48 volts the capsuleâ??s diaphragm is under less tension, so itâ??s able to react to extremely subtle changes in sound pressure; enabling the microphone to capture the slightest nuances in any performance. When the bias voltage is set to +60 volts, the C7e is extremely accurate and articulate.

The Miktek C7e is hand assembled, tested and packaged in Nashville, Tennessee, USA using components from the US, Europe and Asia. Each microphone includes its serialized frequency response graph created during final testing.

The C7e is packaged with its swivel mount, in a wooden box, and set inside a rugged aluminum case along with the included shock mount.

Quality mic at a great price! April 13, 2015
Reviewer: Ryan Hubener from Gladstone, MO United States  
I am extremely impressed with the transient response of this microphone. When applied to percussive/drum recordings, you'll hear more snap and immediacy to the sound. It's also a good choice for vocals when you want a very in-your-face sound. The price is well worth it. I now have a stereo pair. Thanks Front End Audio!

Buy It October 2, 2014
Reviewer: Adam Smith from Nashville, TN United States  
Not only is this a great mic but its a great price as well. Solid build with a nice mount and case. Plus you essentially get two mics since you can change the bias. It's got vintage mic character but still has top end without being brittle.

new favourite December 13, 2011
Reviewer: Mark Davies from Australia  
Just finished the first session recording male pop vocals with this mic. Purchased on FEA's recommendation & "again" I'm not disappointed. Started the session with an AKG C414XLII which didn't quite suit his voice or the song. Bypassed the valve mics & pre's, & plugged the Miktek C7 in to a Speck Electronics Mic Pre 5.0. Sounded OK, but still lacked something special for this song. Switched the mic to +60v, & the pre amp to active output, quickly & easily enhancing the clarity & detail. This was just what the singer wanted to hear, which got me some very happy new customers. Vocal take sat in the mix nicely with no eq, which made my job easy.  Too good for the price !!
Thanks again for the expert advice, FEA !!!

Miktek C7 is fantastic June 12, 2011
Reviewer: Rick Tetzlaff from Van Nuys, CA United States  
This mic is everything I wanted in a large diaphragm condenser. Plus, the internal switch that changes the capsule's voltage from 48 to 60 volts produces a remarkable change in color and clarity. I am so glad I bought it, it really does a great job with everything I've thrown at it. Thanks to Ryan for the expert advice.
