The FC 1 MK II is an ultra-affordable, large-diaphragm condenser from Golden Age Project, featuring a design inspired by classic studio mics. Housed in a heavy-duty brass body, the mic features a fixed cardioid pattern and an internally switched 100 Hz high-pass filter.

With a wide frequency response and large dynamic range, the FC 1 MK II is a versatile performer for studio, stage, or broadcast applications. The mic has a sweet-sounding top end, and its high SPL capabilities allow it to cleanly capture loud sources. Its output transformer is adept at handling bass, and helps provide the mic with a fat-sounding bottom end.

The FC 1 MK II is recommended for vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, other fretted instruments, as a drum overhead or room mic, and in other applications where a large-diaphragm condenser is appropriate. It comes with a spider-style shock mount.

True condenser mic with 26 mm 6 um gold-sputtered, low-distortion capsule, mounted on an effective internal shock mount.

          Comments about Golden Age Project FC 1 MK II - F.E.T. Condenser Microphone:

          This is probably the least expensive voice over mic you can get that is also a decent vocal mic. I tried to mic a guitar amp with this and it did okay but the mount is restrictive on how close you can get to the speaker. inches matter on this mic and I recommend a higher gain preamp for this. I have the Focusrite Scarlet 2 and it is okay with this mic. This mic also works well with the Tascam iXZ iPad interface for Garage band. It is a very cool combo, powers the mic easily.
