The Miktek CV4 Tube Microphone is a hand-built large diaphragm condenser with an original NOS Telefunken EF800 tube, and nine selectable pick-up patterns! It delivers a truly large sound and produces a musical response that will please artists, producers and most seasoned engineers alike. The Miktek CV4 Tube Microphone offers a big, warm and tight bottom end with mids that are present and even, along with a high frequency response thats sweet and airy. The Miktek CV4 Tube Microphone is ideal for recording single vocalists, and perfect for acoustic instruments, groups of vocals, piano, string ensembles, winds, overheads on a drum kit or as ambient room mics.
The Miktek CV4 Tube Microphone utilizes the MK9 capsule developed by Miktek. This unique capsule features dual 1-inch diaphragms manufactured using 5-micron Mylar with a 0.4-micron layer of evaporated gold, which is precisely tensioned, mounted to carefully-tuned backplates, and set back-to-back to create the final capsule. Tight tolerances and special attention to precise machining of the backplate produce a linear off-axis response that ensures the accuracy of the microphone.
The Miktek CV4 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.
Together with an original NOS (new-old-stock) Telefunken EF800 tube, in which the high-voltage circuit has been uniquely implemented, the microphone challenges the performance of the best-in-class industry standards without hesitation.
Following the head amplifier, the heart and soul of the Miktek CV4s is the massive AMI BT4 output transformer, which offers a classic sound and an extended low frequency response found in the earliest versions of the most famous vintage tube microphones.
