The ADK Frankfurt 49 T is a FET large-diaphragm condenser microphone inspired by the legendary M49 with an unmistakable big low midrange subtly mellow sound and the ability to scoop out nasal and sibilance very naturally.
The ADK Frankfurt 49 7 boasts the GK49 capsule from ADK Low-Noise 3 Zigma range and offers a darker tone. It also includes a unique circuitry that prevents hard clipping but instead softly saturates for a much more musical experience even in front of sources with extremely high SPL. Built in Seattle, the Frankfurt 49 T is nonetheless a truly international microphone with the capsule designed by a Belgian-American-Australian team, and the use of British Oxford transformers and Norelco Uber-FET.
The Frankfurt 49 T offers three polar patterns (Omni, Cardioid and Bi-directional) as well as a two-way Attenuation pad providing a choice of 8dB or 16dB of attenuation.
