Introduced in 1960, the U 67 was the quintessential studio workhorse
throughout the formative years of modern music. Today, more than ever,
its inimitably smooth sound continues to be in high demand.
Now, for the first time in decades, Neumann’s legendary tube
microphone is back in production, built to the original specifications.
"Neumann has consistently made the best microphones available. Your quality and the character of your
microphones – there is nothing comparable on the market. Honestly: If I could only use one microphone –
just one mic – it would be a Neumann U 67. It’s the most versatile mic."
Many products introduced in the history of the company have become milestones of professional audio technology. It is no accident that when listing their equipment, audio studios almost always put Neumann microphones at the top of the list – they are a recognized sign of a highly professional operation.
Microphones with highest sound quality
Neumann gives the customer the certainty of acquiring a product with unsurpassed sound quality, reliability and lasting value, an investment that usually survives several generations of audio engineers. Although Neumann microphones certainly are not cheap, professionals know from their daily experience that they are worth the cost. Many owners of home recording studios also dream of having “a real Neumann” of their own.
Neumann U 67 – Return of the Legend
We are very proud to announce the re-issue of the Neumann U 67 tube microphone, one of the most famous and desired microphones in recording history. Sonically, the current reissue is identical to the U 67 made from 1960-1971. It uses the same capsule and electronic design. Key parts, such as the BV 12 output transformer, are meticulously reproduced according to original documentation. EF86 tubes are carefully selected for optimal characteristics and lowest noise in a dedicated measurement facility. The power supply was redesigned to meet today’s strict safety requirements and to accommodate the slightly higher filament current of newer premium grade tubes. The new power supply NU 67 V is fully compatible with older U 67 microphones.
