The MK4 is a large-diaphragm side-address condenser microphone, and it comes in at a great price for a studio mic. But that price belies the quality of the microphone. We’re talking detailed top end, tight bottom end, natural dynamic response, wide frequency response, and the capability to withstand sound-pressure levels up to 140dB.
The MK4 is an excellent vocal microphone with a warm tone and a rich sound. It provides good detail without being too sibilant, and it has fine clarity. It also sounds great on electric guitar amps and even acoustic guitars, where it has a nice full tone and a tight bass response.
If you’re looking for one condenser mic to step up the quality in your project studio, or if you want to expand your capabilities with a well-performing large-diaphragm condenser, then the MK4 is the mic for you. Best of all, it comes in at a great price, so you can easily afford to add it to your rig.
