ADK Custom TC Tube Microphone
The ADK Custom TC Tube Microphone is, hands down, the best sounding tube microphone you'll find in it's price class - or even for twice as much - period. The Custom TC is an affordable tube mic for when you want the classic, delicious vintage sound, but don’t need the refinement, premium components, customization or quality finishing of ADK's flagship microphone: the Z-MOD.
The ADK Custom TC Class A Fixed-Cardioid Tube (Valve) Condenser Microphone features your choice of capsule from the ADK Custom Shop "Capsule-Bank".
Based on ADK’s original TC chassis, this Custom Shop version of the TC is a customized microphone that references the familiar, predictable curves of Classic Microphones, yet features the Lower Self-Noise, Higher SPL handling that ADK's microphones are known for - All at an amazing price!
ADK Custom Shop TC 251
This Custom Capsule is has an air-band boost that is perfect on breathy female vocalists, full bodied sources, nylon guitars and more. Sweet Sound, top and bottom. Just the right “smile”.
ADK Custom Shop TC 12
This Custom Capsule is designed to put the source ‘front-of-the-mix’. Perfect for a great Rock or Pop Singer, the vocal is very forward to accommodate dense backing tracks – Metal to Hip Hop.
ADK Custom Shop TC 67
This Capsule has a 60’s Vibe with Slightly Mellow Tone. While it blooms in the mid-range, the upper frequencies are tailored, making it a very forgiving microphone fitting a variety of sources.
ADK Custom Shop TC 47
The GK47 Capsule has medium mids and softer tops. An excellent choice for an All-Around microphone, it is slightly more forward than an original 47, but smoother than a modern one.
ADK Custom Shop TC 49
This Custom Capsule features a very smooth, dark top, but a full mid and bottom end. Great for getting that extremely vintage vibe on would-be harsh sources. Perfect for rounding out tone.

What We Think
"Absolutely killer microphones for your money - the ADK Custom Shop Custom TC gives you your choice of capsule voicing so you can match it to your needs. Though it is ADK's most affordable of their Class-A Valve Custom Shop offerings, it's no slouch - and it includes a full bevy of top-flight accessories! There is nothing not to like about these microphones and there's a 'flavor' available which will match perfectly with your voice, if you're a vocalist. For the studio owner, the Custom TC line gives you a relatively inexpensive way to get one of each to accommodate any voice which comes through your studio door. And if you're looking for a matched pair for drum overheads (a really good idea for this, by the way, is the Custom TC-12), just let us know and we can make it happen for you."
