Milab's large cardioid style mic with smooth off axis is perfect when you want highly detailed and natural sound!

This is the stereo pair listing.

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.
