When I listened to the C5, the diaphragm seemed to be floating. I didn’t hear the proximity effect I have heard on other mics when the SPLs were increased. Reminded me of my favorite KM 84s and 64s”

Alan Parsons

Producer, Engineer, Artist

The CV3 is one of the most significant new tube mics for years. It stands up favorably against the very best-even classic valve mics. It has stunning realism. I’ll be using it a lot.”

FOH Engineer – Zappa Plays Zappa

“ The build quality of these microphones is superb, just holding one in your hand tells you you have an excellent product, in no way whatsoever does the sonic quality belie that fact. A beautifully smooth response even at very high spl’s with absolutely no discernible distortion at all. Despite very close micing of my percussionists crash’s, bell tree, wood blocks and other things that only percussionists know what they’re called, all are reproduced with excellent detail. Buy some, you won’t regret it.”

Vance Powell

Engineer

“I continue to use the C7 as my go to mic. We’ve since gone back and re-cut 50% of the vocals on Keb’s new CD with the C7. When it comes to recording Keb’s vocal, the C7 blows the doors off of the $10,000 classic we rented.”

Peter Moshay

Multi Grammy Award Winning Engineer, Daryl Hall and John Oates, Live From Daryl’s House, Ian Hunter.

“The new PM9 handheld mics are devine! They seem to have such a warm and what I call “figured out” low end. I used the new Miktek PM series dynamic mics while I was on the road with Hall and Oates in Australia and Miktek continues to impress me with every one of their mics.”

Glenn Rosenstein

Engineer and Producer – U2, Madonna, Talking Heads, The Ramones, The Sopranos, Ziggy Marley

“There are lots of mics I really like, but only a select few I truly love. The C7 is one of them.”

Sean Beavan

Producer, Engineer, Artist
Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, No Doubt, 8mm

“The PM9 is hands down the best dynamic mic I’ve ever had the privilege of singing through. So warm and responsive with a creamy clarity that never sounds harsh even when you’re singing at the top of your range. The PM9 is the fist live mic that I feel represents the sound of my voice, and then, turn up the awesome knob. ”

Juliette Beavan

of 8mm

“The first time I sang into the PM5 condenser I was blown away by the detail and intimacy of sound. Through the PM5 I can whisper in your ear or wail through your bones and have it sound exactly as I intended. I’m in love.”

“It (The CV4) actually stands up to my U47. I’m very impressed. [My clients] agree that it sounds amazing. It sounded like a $5,000 mic.”

John Konensky

Tenacious D

“I’ve been using my Miktek C5 a ton! Actually, it’s become my go-to mic for recording acoustic guitar. I’ve never had a mic that I felt compelled to bring to a session until now. It really delivers that crispy top end, and does a great job reproducing the whole lush spectrum of awesomeness from my favorite guitars.”

Michael Wagener

Ozzy Osbourne, Mötley Crüe, Accept, Great White, Stryper, Poison, Keel, Alice Cooper, Extreme, Megadeth, Janet Jackson, Dokken, Metallica, White Lion, Malice, Warrant and Skid Row.

“ In the workshop, the C5’s won the shoot out on hi hat and ride cymbal. They sound great for drum overheads and really great on acoustic guitar too.”

Tom Brislin

Glen Burtnik, Meat Loaf, Yes, Spiraling, Camel, OK Go, Debbie Harry, Marshall Crenshaw, The Syn, Renaissance

“The C7 captures the smoothness in vocals, and retains the pleasing quality when I throw more energy at it.”…..“The C5s are amazing on piano and percussion. They capture a full, fat sound with lots of clarity. It’s truly enjoyable to listen to tracks I record with the C5s.”

Zoux

Producer, Engineer, Keyboardist
Macy Gray, Beto Cuevas, Run DMC, Bobby Brown

“The CV4 was Macy’s mic for her lead vocals on 90% of the vocals. It’s such a great mic, you put it up, it just sounds good right away. This mic had a really great balance, it was present, cut through the stuff, and it wasn’t too sizzly, and the body of it felt really good.”

Chad Cromwell

Neil Young, Joe Walsh, Mark Knopfler, Vince Gill, Lady Antebellum, Diana Krall, Willie Nelson, Jackson Browne, Boz Scaggs, Bonnie Raitt, Peter Frampton, and Marty Stuart.

“I’ve been using these C5’s for as long as I have my hands on them.”

Kristopher Pooley

Glee and The Glee Project, Gwen Stefani, Morrissey, Melissa Etheridge, Smashing Pumpkins, Jane’s Addiction, Liz Phair, Kenna, Glee Live, Nick Lachey

“We use the C7 back to back with $10K mics and, to be honest, it can be difficult sometimes to tell which is which without looking at the track notes.”

Ray Kennedy

Engineer and Producer
Ray Davies, Joan Baez, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Delbert McClinton, Darrell Scott, Edens Edge.

“The CV4 has the soul of a vintage classic. Deeply smooth yet crisp and clear with sweet harmonic textures.”
