Sanken Microphone Co., Ltd. is known as a professional microphone manufacturer which has the longest history in Japan. The company was established in 1925, and started to create microphones for really professional use. In 1933, Rihei Takeuchi, a founder of the company obtained his first patent for the antiagglomeration of carbon particles in carbon microphones.
In 1939, NHK(Japan Broadcasting Cooperation) asked to make miniature dynamic microphone, and Sanken successfully developed a stand microphone for announcers. This was the actual first step of producing professional microphone. 1947, Sanken introduced the Model MCM-1, which was the dynamic microphone with an aluminum diaphragm, and MS-1 with polystylol diaphragm in 1948. It was used at radio stations and became a standard in Japan's broadcasting industry.
Since then, Sanken has engineered and developed many new solutions to meet modern recording needs and fidelity. Ranging from phantom powered dual capsule microphones, shotgun micropohones (on-camera and boom) and surround system microphones, to precision headworn and lavalier mics. No matter what your are recording, Sanken has the perfect microphone for the job. Markertek is an authorized dealer for Sanken.
