Milab DC-96C
Large Membrane Side-Address Condenser Microphone


Milab's DC-96C is a side-addressed large membrane microphone, designed mainly for studio work, but also suitable for many live applications.

The original DC-96 was released in 1967 and has become a classic Milab model.  The DC-96C has been updated with the latest technology and shares most of its components, including the capsule, with the DC-196, but it is cardioid only and has a single layer mesh grid, just like the DC-96B.

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.
