The BeesNeez Phelicity Tube Condenser Microphone is a large diaphragm condenser microphone, drawing inspiration from classic models like the AKG C12 and the Telefunken ELA M251. It aims to deliver unparalleled clarity, fidelity to the source, and a sonic pleasure professionals seek in studio recording environments.
Circuit Design Excellence
In the design phase of the BeesNeez Phelicity Condenser Microphone, minimising the parts count was a priority to preserve the CK12 capsule's sonic purity. This approach allowed for precise control over the capsule's multi-chambered design, eliminating the need for complex circuit adjustments. The microphone features a 13:1 tape wound mumetal toroidal transformer, optimised for low DR IDC resistance and correct impedance conversion. The design utilises a large core to prevent early saturation, maintaining a compact form. Crafted with pure copper by the BeesNeez team, the transformer ensures a smooth and linear response across the listening curve.
Tube Selection for Optimal Sound
The microphone incorporates a 5654W vintage NOS pentode tube, configured as a triode to achieve low noise levels and a musical character. This choice reflects the industry's preference for pentode tubes in high-quality audio equipment, offering lower output impedance and uniform anode distribution within the tube.
The BeesNeez Phelicity excels in capturing the nuances of a wide range of sounds, from airy vocals and grand pianos to string sections and crisp snare drums. Its rapid responsiveness ensures that every detail of the source material is faithfully reproduced.
Unmatched Build Quality
Constructed from a single piece of cold-formed 380-grade brass, the microphone's body tube boasts high copper content for superior rejection and shielding. The head grille, crafted from bronze and finished to a mirror shine, undergoes medical-grade nickel plating for durability. The microphone's base and proprietary swivel mount connector, featuring gold-pinned Bakelite sockets, underscore the commitment to quality and longevity.
