This is a rebuild of an MXL Mobile Audio Recording Kit (M.A.R.K.) mic. The body of this mic is slightly bigger and taller than the norm because MXL stuffs a big circuit board and a 9V battery inside for recording remotely when phantom power is not available. The body is a nice heavy construction and it has a beautiful wedge shaped headbasket.
I’ve totally rebuilt it with my all discrete jaSb board and k47 style capsule. It’s painted “Midnight Blue” and looks as great as it sounds. Please contact me with any questions about this build!
This is no longer a battery operated mic. It must be phantom powered.
The configuration of the circuit is for Cardioid Only.
This mic has the same innards and same tone of any of my other transformerless builds.
