Neumann M 150


De Neumann M150 is een overweldigend mooi klinkende buizenmicrofoon, waarschijnlijk met name door z'n niet alleen ronde, maar ook bolvormige titanium kapsel. Zeer geschikt voor het registreren van orkesten / ensembles vanwege z'n geweldige weergave van alle transienten.

De microfoon beschikt over een 'transformerless tube amplifier'. Hoewel de microfoon een omni karakteristiek heeft, is hij toch zeer veelzijdig en ook geschikt voor close miking zangopnames en ook van alle akoestische instrumenten mits de opnameruimte geen al te nare reflecties weergeeft.

Het geluid van de M150 klinkt eigenlijk meteen al behoorlijk 'geproduceerd' met een zeer zacht en transparant hoog.

Een laagaffilter (40hz) en -10db pad maken de microfoon helemaal af.

Informatie fabrikant:
A redesigned classic with state-of-the-art circuit technology and correspondingly low self-noise. Like the legendary M 50, this tube microphone is ideal for orchestral recording.
Since the 1950s, the Neumann M 50 has been heralded as the ideal microphone for orchestral recording and string scoring. With its phenomenal transient response and unique directional characteristic, this classic mic has endeared many fans, both in the control room and on the soundstage.

The new M 150 Tube* takes many of the features from the original M 50 and incorporates them in a very modern microphone. With low self noise, a Titanium membrane and capsule, transformerless tube amplifier and sophisticated power supply, the M 150 Tube is not a reissue but an entirely new microphone in its own right.
Acoustical features
The Titanium diaphragm of the pressure capsule is 12 mm in diameter and is exceedingly thin. Although Titanium has been known to have unique and desirable characteristics for some time, it has, until very recently, been very difficult to procure in the quality necessary for use in a microphone of this type.

The headgrille is shaped just like that on the original M 50, as requested by various top engineers in the recording industry. Due to mounting the pressure capsule with the diaphragm flush to the surface of a small (40 mm) sphere, the directional characteristic of the M 150 Tube is entirely unique.

At the lowest frequencies, this system is a pure omnipressure transducer with a perfectly circular polar pattern. However, in the mid- and upper frequencies, the pickup pattern becomes more narrow. The M 150 Tube is an ideal microphone for any stereo, 5.1 or 7.1 surround recording, particularly DECCA Tree technique.
Electrical features
The dynamic range of the M 150 Tube is 119 dB, allowing reproduction of the full musical expression, without restraint.

With a low self noise of 15 dB-A, more gain can be used without risk of adding noise to the final product. The transformerless output circuit of this microphone allows for extremely fine reproduction of small signals and low frequency information. Also, long cable runs can be used with no loss of signal quality.
*The design of the microphone is a registered design of the Georg Neumann GmbH in certain countries.
  • All Titanium capsule
  • Unparalleled transient accuracy
  • Pressure omni capsule for extended low frequency response
  • Modern version of the world-famous M 50
  • Transformerless tube amplifier based on the award-winning M 149 Tube microphone

application hints

  • Its special acoustic properties make this an ideal mic for most classical recordings
  • A superb AB stereo pair for perfect balance of direct and reverberant sound
  • Decca tree, setup with three microphones
  • A highest quality spot (solo) mic
These are just some of the most common applications. We recommend additional experimentation to gain maximum use from this microphone.
