The C5 from Miktek is a small diaphragm cardioid pencil microphone. The C5 is hand crafted, features a super-linear, full-bodied frequency response, and is intended for instrument and vocal capturing during recording sessions or live sound reinforcement applications. The C5 features Miktek's MK5a 0.5" capsule with 5-micron mylar evaporated gold diaphragm. Its cardioid polar pattern accurately rejects off-axis noise, ambiance, and feedback. Its AMI T5 transformer ensures pristine audio throughput without noise. The C5 is an ideal solution for amplifier cabinets, acoustic guitars, brass, strings, drums, percussion, stereo capturing (with multiple microphones), and more.
