Description

From its custom designed Jensen transformer to the dual pressure gradient transducer this valve microphone is a Classic. Machined from solid brass, hand polished,glass bead blasted and coated in satin nickel, this is a microphone with Class A valve circuitry that gives unmatchable warmth, clarity and sensitivity when critical vocal and instrument recording is required.

The Classic II retains many of the qualities of the original, while offering a number of improvements. The new microphone provides greatly enhanced sonic performance, thanks to its dual edge-terminated large diaphragm design. Edge-termination allows the diaphragm to move unrestricted by a center wire, resulting in fuller low end response. Self-noise has been significantly reduced, thanks to re-designed internal circuitry. The new birdcage shock-mount provides superior mechanical noise suppression, and the new stand mount design offers greater stability and security. Overall reliability has been improved through a complete redesign of the mechanical cable connections and the double-shielded, oxygen-free copper multicore cable.
