A Wonderful Mic to Have in Your Tool Kit
by David Vignola from CTI was looking for a mic to capture acoustic guitar that was transparent and with proper mic placement, sounded like the instrument does when your physically standing in the room while it's being playe... read more [+]d. I have tired AKG C100's, Rhode NT1-A and a couple of other lower priced mic's but they all have a darkness to them that didn't pick up the true sound of the guitar and needed a lot of EQ to make them sound decent, but was always falling short of a great acoustic guitar tone.

I called to speak to my sales re (AJ Peterson), who by the way has been extremely helpful to me over the last couple of years as I been setting up my studio....Thank you A.J.!
He had suggested going with the Miktek C5. He said he was really impressed on how well and transparent these mic's were and that he not only had great success using them on acoustic instruments but also using them on drums as overhead mics. So I thought, These could be a really nice pair of mic's that can be used on several different sources with great success.
I first tired these on acoustic guitar. We were playing a Taylor 900 series 6-string and also recorded a Taylor 355 12 string. Set up the mic about 6"-8" away from the body pointed at the 12th fret on a 45 degree angle....pretty typical mic technique right?
We were blown away on how well these mic's sounded. When listening back to the recording in the control room we were amazed on how transparent the Miktek were and if you were to close your eyes you would think the person was in the room playing the guitar right in front of you. No EQ really needed, just roll off a little bottom end.
We tried a few different mic positions and the result was the same. It was impossible to make this mic sound bad. If you want different tones, just move the mic and the Miktek's will accurately reflect the true tone of the guitar.
I have not tried these on drums or electric guitar yet but I have read other reviews where people have and had great results so I am looking forward to that! I would say if your looking for a good mid priced mic that can be used on several sources and sound great, the give the Miktek's a try. For the money you really can't beat them. close [-]
Sell your 184s.
by Ian Carlson from Minneapolis, MNFantastic acoustic guitar microphone, but money in the bank on overheads, a stereo pair over a string quartet, and almost anything acoustic. Not brittle, but very sharp. A/Bed them against a 184, an... read more [+] SM81, a 414, a C451B, and an NT-5 on acoustic guitar through an Avid 192 & an API 512c preamp, and the C5 is the clear cut winner. A fantastic microphone investment for casual users AND professionals. close [-]

EQ? No need....
by Sean from Pac NWI only have 2 words to say about this matched pair....... Accurate and detailed. These mics pick up the slightest nuances of sound and player. Hands down the best stereo pair I've ever played in front... read more [+] of. Sorry Nuemann. Ya got beat. I took a chance on these hoping that I wouldn't be disappointed. They by far exceeded my expectations. I might buy another pair just to hang on my wall. I gave them a 4.5 because one of the miktek badges on the side of the barrel is loose. A simple aesthetic issue that does not effect performance but is nevertheless annoying. close [-]
