No more having to check eBay and vintage audio equipment dealers for possibly creaky old stock — legacy microphone maker, Neumann is taking a spin in the Wayback Machine with a reissue of one of its famed microphones — the U 67.
The U 67 was introduced in 1960 and quickly found a home as on option in recording studios throughout Europe and the United States. The adventurous broadcast engineer might try to talk his GM into springing for one.
The tube-based mic features the K 67 capsule for that buttery Neumann sound. The new issue, according to Neumann is loyal to its past. Neumann President Wolfgang Fraissinet said, “The reissue has been meticulously reproduced to original specifications …”
Keeping with the original are selectable omni/figure 8/cardioid pattern, low-cut filter, BV 12 output transformer along with matching tube circuitry for the EF86 tubes.
The new U 67 is expected in March and priced at $6,999.
