A large diaphragm, 6 micron, gold sputtered capsule sends the incoming signal to a New Old Stock EF80 tube (electrically identical, except for the heater voltage, to the very expensive Telefunken VF14 used in the famous Neumann U47) to the hand-wired circuit which includes selected WIMA polypropylene coupling capacitors to a state of the art output transformer custom designed (to match the European Tube output impedance) by the wonderful folks atCINEMAG Transformers in Los Angeles. The mic can also be made with the German Metal tube or the American Tube Equivalent; check for availability.
This is NOT an assembly line microphone; each unit is hand-wired, point to point, and voltage tuned for maximum performance. The microphones were originally built to fill the need for more high quality tube microphones and are now in demand by everyone who has heard them.
If you’re looking for a tube microphone with characteristics similar to the venerable Neumann U47 but at a tenth of the cost, then you will love this mic!
Every set includes: The Pearlman TM 1 Microphone, custom built power supply, custom tube microphone cable with Neutrik and Mogami, a heavy duty shockmount and aluminum case.
