  1. Great Mic on vocals and acoustic instruments!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on July 1, 2013

    I've read that statement in many mic reviews and I always thought it was only a catch phrase since the main things we record with a condenser mics are vocals and acoustic instruments. however, I was blown away by when I compared this baby with a AT4040 and other lower budget mic! I recorded male and female vocals and acoustic guitar and wow! It's tight in the low and has a nice airy sound that makes even breath noises musical. It comes with a nice carrying case and a wooden box for the mic itself. IMHO it's the best mic for the price range.

Product Description

The Miktek CV4 is a large-diaphragm tube condenser microphone offering nine pick-up patterns. The CV4’s sound is truly large and produces a musical response that will please artists, producers and most seasoned engineers a like. The bottom end is big, warm and tight, with mids that are present and even, along with a high frequency response that’s sweet and airy. The CV4 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 CV4 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 heart and soul of the CV4’s head amplifier is the AMI BT4 transformer, which offers a classic sound and an extended low frequency response found in the earliest versions of the most famous vintage tube microphones. 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.

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.

The CV4 is packaged with its swivel mount in a wooden box, which is set inside an aluminum case with the included power supply unit, 7-pin XLR cable and shock mount.
