NEUMANN M150 TUBE MICNeumann (www.neumannusa.com) has introduced the M150 tube condenser microphone, a modern re-creation of the vintage M50. The M150 features the same omni pattern but offers improved performance, lower self-noise (15 dBA), a transformerless tube amplifier based on the award-winning M149 tube microphone, and a sophisticated power supply. The M150's thin, 12mm capsule and lightweight titanium membrane provide smooth, extended frequency response. Provided with a head grille and capsule mounting that exactly replicate the original M50's, the M150 also reproduces the M50's famous pickup pattern: circular at low frequencies and increasingly narrow up the spectrum. Specs include a 119dB dynamic range, 20mV/Pa sensitivity and 134dB maximum SPL.
