Smooth tube mic richness awaits, one of the easiest vocal mics to get along with in the world so grab one now! The Pearlman TM 1 Microphone was designed by and is hand made by Dave Pearlman of ROTUND RASCAL RECORDING STUDIO. It is a high quality microphone made for professional studio use but priced for the home recordist. Many studios using digital recording need a front end system to warm up their recordings. This mic is for you!A large diaphragm, 6 micron, gold sputtered capsule sends the incoming signal to a New Old Stock tube (electrically identical, except for the heater voltage, to the very expensive Telefunken VF14* used in the famous Neumann U47) to the hand-wired circuit which includes selected WIMA polypropylene coupling capacitors to a state of the art output transformer custom designed (to match the European Tube output impedance) by either the wonderful folks at CINEMAG Transformers in Los Angeles or by the Tamura Transformer Company.This is NOT an assembly line microphone; each unit is hand-wired, point to point, and voltage tuned for maximum performance. The microphones were originally built to fill the need for more high quality tube microphones and are now in demand by everyone who has heard them. If you’re looking for a tube microphone with characteristics similar to the venerable Neumann U47 but at a tenth of the cost, then you will love this mic!Pearlman TM-1 Features Selectable OMNI or CARDIOID Patterns Selectable Low Pass Filter What's Included The Pearlman TM 1 Microphone EF80 Tube Version Custom built power supply Custom tube microphone cable with Neutrik and Mogami Shockmount Aluminum shipping case

Signal Art (neumann U47 Replica)

...would put this mic on or above the level of my other go-to vocal mics (u87, Beesneez Arabella, Gefell um92.1s, Pearlman tm1, etc) depending on the vocalist and sound Im going for. Its that good!
