ADK Hamburg Mk8 Condenser Microphone

The ADK Hamburg Mk8 Condenser Microphone has a silky smooth top, forward warm mids, and a robust but natural bottom. All this culminates into a rich charactered mic that is simply beautiful for vocals (especially male vocals), acoustics, guitars, and even drums and drum overheads. But it seriously rocks on vocals.

ADK Hamburg July 24, 2015
Reviewer: Rob Coates from Rochester MN United States  
The ADK Hamburg is a no nonsense mic that is a very refreshing contrast to many of the cheap LDCs out there that have a very hyped high end. To my ears the Hamburg is a little smoother on top. I believe it was voiced to sound similar to high end German tube mics (you know the one's I'm talking about). I actually think it's at least in the ball park.

ADK Hamburg Mk8 order July 20, 2015
Reviewer: Dunn Logan from Lompoc, CA United States  
I had a very good experience with ordering the mic from your company. The sales person were very knowledgeable about the product. The best part is that this mic delivers and it is exactly what I expected of it. Prefect for my voice. I will recommend your store to all my friends also, thanks for your excellent customer service and advice on gears.
Best wishes

Great mic at a great price! July 7, 2015
Reviewer: Shawn Conroy from Nashville, TN United States  
I was looking for another 'color' for the mic locker as I already own Shure SM7B, Audio Technica 4033, CAD E100S and a vintage EV RE16.  I am a sibilant singer so I was interested in the claims that this helps reduce sibilance, and I found that to be true after adjusting the mic position carefully.  In other words, it's not a cure all for sibilant singers but it certainly helped reduce those harsh esses with proper placement.  The mic sounds very nice through mic Golden Age preamp, definitely not warm or overly dark but with a hint of tube character.  I've only used for vocals so far, though I bet it would be a fine choice for other things; that's the joy of a new mic, trying it out on different sources and finding what works.

Fantastic condenser mic!! October 13, 2014
Reviewer: Matthew Barton from Lincolnton, GA United States  
I was having some sibilance issues with other mics.  (My vocal range is baritone/tenor).  The ADK Hamburg provided an effective and affordable solution.  I'm in love with its smooth and balanced tone.  So happy I discovered this one.  Front End Audio provided first-rate customer service.  Product was carefully packaged, and arrived in immaculate condition in just a few days.  Thanks guys!!  Highly recommended.

Great Mic March 22, 2013
Reviewer: Steve C. from Arizona  
I recently picked up the ADK Hamburg because of a recommendation from a trusted friend. The mic sounds wonderful. It's a darker sounding condenser without out all of the extra exaggerated harsh top end that most mics in this price range have. Great vocal mic and great utility mic. This was my first ADK mic. My other mics I own include are Bock 195, Manley Cardioid, AEA R84... so I was skeptical to buy this mic but I am glad I did. It's a great extremely affordable mic. The build quality is what to be expected at this price range, but it's solid and comes with a very nice black wood box which was surprising. I plan on checking out ADKs custom shop now because of this entry level mic.
