From Our Research Team:
Get That "Vintage Sound!"Everything you want from a large-diaphragm tube mic! The CV4 from Miktek manages to give you two things every studio engineer wants — amazing tube warmth plus extreme versatility. Forget those single-purpose mics that only sound good on male vocals or female vocals... when you invest in the CV4 large-diaphragm condenser microphone, you're getting a multipurpose studio workhorse. The versatility comes from the CV4's nine pickup patterns, easily selectable to tailor your sound to any source. You'll love the CV4 on the usual suspects, including vocalists and acoustic guitar. You'll be surprised, though, by how well the CV4's musical response works in a pair as overheads or as ambient room mics.
The heart of the Miktek CV4's sound comes from its AMI BT4 transformer and original NOS Telefunken EF800 tube — offering up a classic sound you'd expect from some of the earliest vintage tube microphones. All in all, the CV4 manages to gives you that artist-pleasing, producer-pleasing "big sound." The bottom end is warm, tight, and big, complete with present and even mids. And the highs? Sweet and airy, reminiscent of those vintage studio staples that drive a high price tag. And you get all of that, at unbeatable value, with the CV4. To round things out, Miktek's CV4 comes with a swivel mount in a wooden box, set inside an aluminum case, and complete with a power supply, a 7-pin XLR cable, and a shockmount. Worth every dollar.

Love my CV4's
by Larry Nair from Gardnerville NVThe detail that this mic captures is great. We have mostly used mics in the sub $200 range which were adequate but dull. I don't have a lot of experience with high end mic's (I know this one is no... read more [+]t high end price wise) but the step up in performance is more than worth what we paid. The difference in sound quality is unmissable between our older and our newer recordings. I would recommend to a friend. close [-]

by Brian from ColoradoHad the CV4 for nearly a month and it's everything I'd hoped for. Teaming it with either a UA 2-610 or Grace M101 (both purchased from Sweetwater) has given me a ton of tonal options I haven't had wit... read more [+]h other mikes, including my Miktek CV7 and AKG 414. Tracking vocals, acoustic guitar and even upright bass has all been great and my recordings have never sounded better. Only negative is I wish my Sweetwater rep would have told me about the free PM9 deal they have with the CV4 this month - I would have waited a couple of weeks for that. Oh well, sales are sales and life is life. Thanks Miktek! close [-]

Dream Mic & Workhorse
by Christian Matthew Cullen from Chicago, ILI was at Sweetwater presenting with Hammond Organ and was thinking about getting one of these and it just so happens that the president of Miktek, Michael Ketchell, was across the hall shooting out th... read more [+]is mic with many of the top contenders costing much more than this microphone . I had spent the last four months looking for a killer workhorse mic for my production studio. When I heard this mic up against the great company it was keeping ; it became clear. It was no contest . This microphone sounded beautiful . I purchased one on the spot and it's become my favorite VO , vocal, percussion and ... well .. workhorse mic. Paired with a Brent Averill 1272 --> Distressor --> Apogee Duet - this transformer / tube mic sings.

When I heard we were going to start carrying Miktek I have to admit that I was a bit surprised. On the surface it felt like this may be another "me too" product in the category. Let me just say that this microphone sounded absolutely amazing. It represents a substantial leap forward in sound quality at the given price point. I'm going to suggest it to all my clients looking for a microphone in the price category. It won't disappoint. I suggest you check one out right away!
