Your Ticket to Silky Smooth Vocals!Amazing vocal microphone! The C7 is an ear-pleasing large-diaphragm FET condenser microphone — the sort of mic you can put up, turn up, and call it a day. Plus, thanks to the three selectable pickup patterns, the C7 is as versatile as it is sweet sounding. It features cardioid, omni, and bidirectional pickup patterns — each convenient. You'll love being able to use the bidirectional pattern to capture two backing vocalists at once, or get an amazing live duet recording. As for the sound, the C7 is warm on the bottom and super-silky on the top. At the same time, though, its midrange is both natural and open. A first-call pick when you're recording vocals, but don't be afraid to use the Miktek C7 on guitar amps, as overheads on a drum kit, or when recording nearly any kind of acoustic instrument.
How does the Miktek C7 manage to sound so good? Its head amplifier has been designed around the AMI T7 transformer, coupled with high-quality components and hand-selected transistors. The goal? To get as close as possible to the tone of the most desired vintage microphones. For even more versatility, the C7 features a unique circuit that lets you switch the capsule's bias voltage from +48-+60 volts. That means you get two microphone voices in one. Use the +48 setting when you want to capture even the slightest of performance nuances. Switch over to +60 for an extremely articulate, accurate sound. However you use the C7, be glad you spent so little for such a big-deal microphone. Miktek nailed it with this one. If you're investing in your first high-quality microphone for all-around vocal and acoustic instrument recording, here's a stand-out pick: the Miktek C7.

by Gary Gidak from Phoenix, AZI like to share my experience with others, so I felt compelled to jump on the "Wow" bandwagon. I just finished playing with some acoustic guitar tracks, and some pop vocals, and boy did this mic shine... read more [+]! I've recorded with some seriously expensive microphones, and I can't think of a single one of them that is a better value. I honestly think the C7 is WAY under-priced. It's so much better than what you actually pay for, and I can't imagine why. The build is solid, with obvious attention to tight tolerances, and the sound is just amazing. So, believe all these reviews, it's definitely not hype, it's the truth. You can't go wrong with the C7. I can picture it on just about every instrument in the studio. close [-]

Miktek C7- Classical Gas
by Dr. Smooth's Sound Emporium from Philadelphia RegionBought this mike solely on recommendation of my "go to" Sweetwater Expert (Wayne Davis) to capture a vocalaist with extreme dynamic range as well as her percussive acoustic guitar and it exceeds all e... read more [+]xpectations. Extemely smooth! Where I was truly blown away was when using the Miktek C7 (through a Drawmer 1962 Tube preamp) on my own acoustic classical guitar. Ive been using my Gibson Chet Atkins and Godin electric guitars to track classical guitar parts...no more. Extremely versatile Mic. close [-]

Reviews Can't Do Justice
by TM from LA, CAThis is one of those "hear to believe" situations. You've got every reviewer telling you its the best 900 dollar mic around, and it holds well or even beats mics much more expensive. Right... Like you... read more [+] haven't heard that one before with... what... every mic review on the planet?!

I was in your shoes a week ago.
Get it. There isn't one thing about this mic I don't honestly love. The look (much bigger in person than the pictures make it seem, honestly about the same size if not bigger than a u87), the box, the case, the shock mount. Oh yeah! It also sounds amazing!! It has a very smooth and rich mid range. The high end is still a tiny bit sibilant to me, but honestly every solid state mic is to my ears. This is the best FET I've heard, in and around its price range. I don't know if its the best around, I haven't heard them all. And there's a lot of great mics out there.
This is one of those pieces of gear you hear and go "I had NO IDEA what I was missing". Its just another step closer to being able to compete with the biggest studios around. There's a reason why all the big name engineers and producers are flocking to these mics.
You've gotta hear it to believe it. close [-]
MikteK C7 is Awesome !!
by Rafael from New MexicoI was looking for a good condenser at a reasonable price - I knew I couldn't afford any of those top of the line mics out there, so I was suggested trying the C7. Wow, I was so impressed with this... read more [+] one I couldn't believe the price for a mic that sounds as good as the top mics out there! Try it - you will love it :) close [-]

This microphone should cost a lot more than it does. The voicing and response remind me of the old FET versions of a well-known German vocal microphone (the new version of which costs more than $3,000)! Hearing the Miktek C7 and then seeing the price tag is a shocking experience. The sound will blow you away. This is a company whose name will be well known in no time. Simply amazing.
