The U195 is a versatile phantom-powered single, low-noise, wide-band fet mic coupled with Soundelux USA's�new super smooth k67 capsule.� Add to this a classic, massive output transformer along with a unique �FAT� switch, and you have the ultimate Swiss Army Mic capable of handling any studio chore you can throw at it.

�The U195 can satisfy a wide range of applications for engineers and studios that may have a few expensive models, but need to fill out their mic cabinet without breaking the budget,� said David Bock, who makes the microphones in California. �This mic provides remarkable fullness and presence with exceptionally low background noise on everything from vocals and acoustic instruments, to guitar cabinets and drums.�
