Sounds of the Sixties Revisited: Neumann Reveals the Reissue of the Immortal U 67 Tube Condenser

By February 13, 2018Miking, News

Not all microphones are created equal, but few have reached rarified heights of Neumann’s U 67. It captured a sound that defined a generation and now it’s back in all its original glory.

Created in 1960, the Neumann U 67 was famed for its tube-driven sound and versatility. It’s set to return, built with strict adherence to its original specs.

The components of the original, including the BV 12 output transformer and EF 86 tubes feature here, just as they did in the first incarnation. Importantly, the reissue features the original K 67 capsule, which is largely responsible for the archetypal Neumann sound.

The features that found homes in subsequent large-diaphragm condensers contribute to the U 67’s versatility and makes it a top-of-the-line modern studio performer. Switchable polar patterns capture cardioid, omni-directional and figure-8 shapes and a low-end rolloff switch helps to mitigate the proximity effect on close-miked sources.
