The transformer coupled tube circuitry has its origins in famous European vintage designs and features a HAND SELECTED Russian made 6072A tube.
The included Custom Retro Shockmount is superb in allowing a precise positioning, while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations up into the microphone body. This isolation allows for superior professional results.
