The FC 1 MKII was designed with classic large diaphragm condenser microphones in mind. We wanted to make an affordable mic with some of the characteristics of the good old German models.
The FC 1 has a center-terminated capsule just like in the old days, adding some harmonic distortion and a sweet top to the sound. This design also gives the mic an ability to handle louder sounds without harshness or other problems.
The output transformer can handle bass really well and still give you that extra fat sound that only tubes and transformers can deliver.
The retro EQ in the FC 1 is set to deliver maximum sound quality with as many sound sources as possible at a price anyone can afford. It sounds great on vocals, acoustic guitar, percussion, amps, piano, leslie, drums, and more.
