No more having to check eBay and vintage audio equipment dealers for possibly creaky old stock � legacy microphone maker Neumann is taking a spin in the Wayback Machine with a reissue of one of its famed microphones � the�U 67.
The U 67 was introduced in 1960 and quickly found a home as on option in recording studios throughout Europe and the United States. The adventurous broadcast engineer might try to talk his GM into springing for one.
The tube-based mic features the K 67 capsule for that buttery Neumann sound. The new issue, according to Neumann is loyal to its past. Neumann President Wolfgang Fraissinet said, �The reissue has been meticulously reproduced to original specifications ��
Keeping with the original are selectable omni/figure 8/cardioid pattern, low-cut filter, BV 12 output transformer along with matching tube circuitry for the EF86 tubes.�
The new U 67 is expected in March and priced at $6,999.
