Vintage-Sounding Condenser Microphone

At the heart of the microphone is the large, 26mm gold-sputtered low distortion capsule, which comes mounted within an internal shock mount. The gold-sputtered capsule, combined with the cardioid polar pattern provides an extended frequency range, designed to capture every nuance from virtually any sound source. The low-noise F.E.T. amplifier helps to push the microphone to its maximum ability, making it highly versatile. The result is a sparkling top-end, with a powerful and defined bass response, combining to make a full-bodied and defined sound. The sound character is similar to what is found within vintage microphones and can be used to record both instruments and vocals.

Class-A Discrete Circuitry

The FC1 MKII is comprised of a range of premium-grade components including discrete class-A electronic with vintage style EQ and a transformer balanced output stage. The vintage-style EQ helps to provide that vintage warmth, normally found in retro condenser microphones. It is also highly affordable, making it ideal as a starter microphone for someone looking to improve their audio recording capabilities. One of the most unique features of the microphone is the internal switch, designed to active the 100Hz high-pass filter. This helps to remove unwanted low-end, perfect for catering to vocal recording.

Rugged, Versatile Design

The rugged and heavy-duty brass body not only looks sleek but ensures optimal reliability and protection against scratches and other superficial damage. The microphone can be used with any standard mixer or preamp, using a range of XLR cables and connections. The bottom of the microphone features a gold-plated XLR connector for optimal signal transference. The Golden Age FC1 MKII also comes complete with a shock mount for added stability and improved audio performance. This shock mount helps to isolate the microphone from unwanted vibrations.
