The MKL5000 is a large-diaphragm, multi-pattern valve condenser microphone in the classic “bottle” shape.

The microphone features a Class A tube circuit amplifier using a Russian military 6Ж1П pentode tube. The capsule is 34mm, with two 5-micron, 27mm diaphragms. A switch on the microphone body gives access to three polar patterns: Cardioid, Omni and Figure-8, making the MKL-5000 more versatile.
The kit includes: MKL-5000, heavy-duty spider shock mount AM65/25, BP-103 PSU, XLR-6 cable and power cable all in a padded wooden case.
