The MK8 is a dual-diaphragm true condenser microphone with five switchable polar patterns, a 3-position switchable low cut/roll-off filter and a 3-position pad switch. It features two 24-carat gold plated 1" diaphragms in a rugged metal housing with a shock-mounted capsule and safely sheltered electronics.
The MK 8 offers a great solution for advanced home recording applications and project studios alike. It is the microphone for people who pour all of their passion into their audio projects. The MK 8 offers sophisticated options to sign off your sound with your own personal handwriting. The dual-diaphragm condenser microphone delivers warm and precise sound reproduction.

No matter which mixing desk or recording device is used, the MK 8 matches the input sensitivity with a 3-step attenuator. Two adjustable filters compensate for the proximity effect as well as low frequency rumble or structure born noise. The MK 8 has dual one-inch diaphragms precisely spattered with 24-carat gold.
