The Neumann M149 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

Posted on February 19th, by Mitch in Blog. Comments Off on The Neumann M149 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

The M149 Tube built from 1995 to current, is a variable dual diaphragm microphone. The K49 capsule well known from the legendary U47 and M49 microphones is followed by a tube functioning as an impedance converter. In contrast to earlier concepts, utilizing a transformer, the tube is complemented with a transformerless output circuit design. The M149 Tube can feed long microphone cables without any coloration.

Two slide switches are located below the large, acoustically very open head grille. The selection switch at the front allows for one of nine directional patterns. The slide switch at the rear operates a seven-step high pass filter. It allows a very fine adjustment of the cut-off frequency.

Nestler had previously been the head of R&D for the AEG/Telefunken Electro Acoustic Lab (ELA).

 

The V72 was modeled on the V41 and the circuits are almost identical with the exception of the gain control section. The V72 also utilized modern advancements like Noval glass tubes and a smaller housing, the “Danner” cassette module. The first 100 units were built at the NWDR Zentraltechnik. Serial numbers 101 to 300 were built by Maihak. These units … Read More »
