Milab DC-96C - Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

The newest version of the classic Milab DC-96. Received stellar reviews and was nominated as "microphone of the year" in Resolution Magazine upon its release.

The latest addition to the classic Milab DC family is the DC-96C, a side-addressed large membrane microphone designed mainly for studio work, but also excellent for many live applications.

The original DC-96 was released in the late 1960’s. In 1983, it was replaced by the updated DC-96B which would become one of the most iconic Milab models. The “C”-version has been equipped with Milab’s latest capsule and amplifier technology to make sure that the DC-series remains at the top of the game. In fact, Resolution Magazine said that the Milab DC-96C “is a great example of how a classic design can and should be reinvigorated.”

The DC-96C is suitable for a wide range of applications, including studio vocals, acoustic guitar and piano, hi-hats and overheads, guitar amps and more.

These mics picked up the body and depth of the soul of the instrument beautifully. […] The low end that the Milabs capture is absolutely stunning as well. There were moments where I couldn’t believe how richly the mic captured the bass of the guitar.”  Recording Hacks
