Tube Goodness Gives You Classic Mic Sound!Everything you want from a large-diaphragm tube microphone! The CV4 from Miktek manages to give you two things every studio engineer wants — amazing tube richness plus extreme versatility. Forget those single-purpose microphones 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 microphones.
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 classic tube microphones. All in all, the CV4 manages to offers up 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 classic 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.
