The new NU 67 V is fully compatible with older U 67 microphones, and automatically adapts to the local mains voltage.
The U 67 tube microphone, introduced in 1960, was the quintessential studio workhorse throughout the formative years of modern music. The iconic tube microphone is back in production and built to original specifications.
The company has announced availability of the U 67 in the Middle East.
Our customers in the Middle East now have a chance to adopt a microphone that set the studio standard when it was first introduced in 1960. The U 67 retains its pre-eminence and with the re-issue, which meticulously reproduces the sound and technical specifications of the original, a new generation will now enjoy the versatility, reliability and unique sound profile of this microphone, said Mig Cardamone, Director of Sales and Marketing at Sennheiser Middle East.
With three selectable polar patterns omni-directional, cardioid, and figure-of-8 and tube circuitry, including low-cut and pad switches, the Neumann U 67 is equipped for virtually any recording task, the release stated. Due to its essentially linear response in the three polar patterns, the U 67 is also a versatile microphone for all kinds of instruments such as strings, woodwinds, brass, piano, drums, acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar and upright bass.
The U 67 was the first microphone equipped with the K 67 capsule, which has since become associated with the Neumann sound and continues to be used in its successor, the U 87 A. Sonically, the current re-issue is identical to the U 67 made from 19601971. It uses the same capsule and electronic design. Key parts, such as the BV 12 output transformer, have been meticulously reproduced according to original documentation. Its EF86 tubes have been carefully selected in a dedicated measurement facility for optimal characteristics and lowest noise.
The U 67 comes in a vintage case that is just like the U 67 re-issue hand-made in Germany. Besides the microphone, it includes an elastic suspension, a microphone cable and the NU 67 V power supply. The power supply was redesigned to meet todays safety requirements and to accommodate the slightly higher filament current of newer premium-grade tubes. The new NU 67 V is fully compatible with older U 67 microphones, and automatically adapts to the local mains voltage.
