Neumann has incredible news for lovers of the U 67: for the first time in decades, the iconic tube microphone is back in production and built to the original specifications. It was the microphone that defined the sound of the sixties: The U 67 tube microphone was the quintessential studio workhorse throughout the formative years of modern music.
To this day, many top-level engineers would choose the U 67 as their only microphone of choice for its inimitably smooth sound and extraordinary versatility.
SUITABLE FOR ANY RECORDING TASK
With three selectable polar patterns – omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure-of-8 – and advanced tube circuitry, including low-cut and pad switches, the Neumann U 67 is well-equipped for virtually any recording task. Its smooth top-end with a subtle tube shimmer makes the U 67 an outstanding vocal microphone for both male and female voices. Due to its essentially linear response in the three polar patterns, the U 67 is also a very versatile microphone for all kinds of instruments such as strings, woodwinds, brass, piano, drums, acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar and upright bass.
RETURN OF A LEGEND
On its launch in 1960, the U 67 was quickly adopted as the new studio standard because of its extraordinary versatility and sound quality. The U 67 was the first microphone equipped with the famous K 67 capsule, which has since become associated with “the Neumann sound” and continues to be used in its successor, the U 87 A. No less important is the U 67’s masterful tube circuit, which features a clever pre-emphasis/de-emphasis scheme to minimize tube hiss.
The U 67 was also the first microphone to address modern recording techniques such as close miking, with its switchable low-cut filter compensating for the proximity effect occurring at short recording distances.
