Soundelux U99 Multipattern Large Diaphragm Tube Microphone - B-Stock (Ex Demo)

The Soundelux U99 is a valve large diaphragm condenser microphone inspired by the legendary U67 handmade in the US by David Bock.

NOTE: This item is B-Stock, Ex Demo.

The U99 features a German hand made 1″ diameter dual symmetrical back-plate dual membrane kk67 capsule, specially tensioned for warmth and clarity. The Soundelux version avoids the 5K rise common to second-­hand vintage 67’s for less peaky upper mid response.

In addition, the E67 features an EF732 sub-miniature pentode tube run as a triode using Soundelux’s SteadyState bias system for the best distortion, dynamic response and noise specifications. Steady Bias is an important operational feature for it is the construction technique found in the most hallowed of vintage 67s prized for their spectacular sound. It comes with the P99 true linear power supply, which is derived almost entirely from the original vintage technology.

For the utmost in reliability and sonic purity, the U99 has no internal connectors.
