A legend returns! The U 67 was the first microphone equipped with the famous K 67 capsule and it became the sound of the '60s. As timeless as its sound and technical design is its outer appearance. The U 67’s cone-shaped body and the tapered head grille have since become iconic for the Neumann brand.
Neumann U67 Tube Condenser Microphone Reissue Set Features
The Original - Often Imitated, Never Duplicated:
- Reissue of the legendary Neumann U 67 tube microphone
- Meticulously reproduced to the original specifications
- New power supply NU 67 V automatically adapts to the local mains voltage
- Handmade and hand soldered in Germany
Introduced in 1960, the U 67 was the quintessential studio workhorse throughout the formative years of modern music. Today, more than ever, its inimitably smooth sound continues to be in high demand. To this day, many top level engineers and artists would choose the U 67 as their “desert island” microphone for its extraordinary versatility and unmatched sound quality.
Sonically, the current reissue is identical to the U 67 made from 1960-1971. It uses the same capsule and electronic design. Key parts, such as the BV 12 output transformer, are meticulously reproduced according to original documentation. EF86 tubes are carefully selected for optimal characteristics and lowest noise in a dedicated measurement facility. The power supply was redesigned to meet today’s strict safety requirements and to accommodate the slightly higher filament current of newer premium grade tubes. The new power supply NU 67 V is fully compatible with older U 67 microphones.
