Peluso P-67 Large Diaphragm Condenser Tube Microphone
In 1960, the U 67 sought to deliver smoother highs, a solid bass and a rich detailed mid-range while introducing some new technical advances. Proximity effect is the low-end boost created when a vocalist gets very close to a microphone. It can have a very powerful effect, but can leave the bottom end muddy and boomy. To handle this, the '67 introduced a low-end roll-off switch. For very loud sources like drums or certain guitar amps, a -10 dB pad switch was also introduced. Though the much-loved steel body VF14 tube of the U 47 had been discontinued, a lower noise floor was now possible with the new glass pentode tube. A more accurate figure-eight polar pattern was also now possible thanks to the development of the double back plate K67 capsule. Manufactured from 1960 to 1971 the U 67 was the versatile workhorse of professional recording studios of the time. The P-67 is a faithful tribute to this treasured microphone.
The P-67 is paired with the Peluso MX-56 power supply. The dual sided capsule in the P-67 enables the power supply to feature 9 polar patterns in an array from omni-directional to cardioid to figure eight.
The P-67 features our heavy-duty 8-pin screw on cable connector. The large diameter pins in the screw on connector give a tight and secure cable connection designed to perform for a lifetime of use.
Acoustically matched pairs are available upon special request. Simply add two microphones to the shopping cart and then also add the Peluso Precision Acoustic Stereo Matching item to the cart. Peluso would then do the matching work and ship two acoustically matched microphones straight to you.
