CK-40

21.11.2014
Purchased this in october and the delivery was here within 5 days. The build quality is amazing; the case provided is sturdy and the foam fits each piece perfectly. The wooden case for the actual microphone is a pretty addition and the felt lining ensures no damage or scratches. The build of the mic is of good quality as well as it's solid and even though the capsules rotate the mic doesn't rattle or shake. One feature that had me a bit let down is the fact that you cannot have -10dB pad and a HPF rolloff at the same time as it's controlled by the same switch. The FET circuitry provides a bright tone without being too harsh and has a well-round low-frequency response.

I recently used this on a Vox AC30 (with a DanElectro guitar) placed with both capsules in cardioid facing the rear of the cone and received an excellent capture. The mic captures a lot more high end information than you'd imagine with little noise.

On solo male vocals, the mic works wonders using just one capsule (though I was nervous about only having one XLR plugged into the splitter) and captures a crisp sound, albeit some sibilance which can be easily cured in the mix stage.

Would recommend for a mid-range LDC at an excellent price.

Bernd aus K., 26.12.2015
"That looks really valuable" I thought when opening the suitcase: Beautiful wooden boxes, in which the red micro lies. Good spider with two spare gums. You can not see otherwise. Windscreen. You have to buy extra. Even a current calf is there. Is not needed, but you can always use for something else. And the whole thing in an aluminum case. So far so good.

Then I screwed the micro into the spider and on a tripod. Connection to a RME Babyface and a MacBook Pro with Cubase. And what I then heard was incomprehensible: loud whistling in the headphone! I wanted to use the micro for MS Streofonie and had chosen up the eight and down a kidney. Because of the whistle, I changed the settings. And the whistling also changed. Depending on the setting of the directional characteristics between 5.8 kHz and about 12 kHz (can be seen with Cubase nice).

In addition, the upper diaphragm was apparently not properly mounted in the housing. Despite spider, there was loud crashing at the smallest movements.

To this overall impression fits also the text of the usage instructions: Here is as a note that one can use this micro well for MS Stereofonie, if one buys a second. If not even the manufacturer noticed that already two capsules were installed .....

My copy was unfortunately not at all. It's on the way back to Thomann.

Will probably still save something and then the Audio Technica 4050ST or a little later a Berlin micro ...
