Crafted to meet the demands of industry professionals, this microphone embodies meticulous engineering and unparalleled sound fidelity.

Unmatched Circuitry

The heart of the Tribute 2 lies in the exclusive BeesNeez CK12 capsule, replicating the multi-chambered design of the original AKG CK12. Achieving such precision is only possible with the highest machining and hand-crafted care standards. The BeesNeez team hand-laps and diaphragms each capsule to ensure that precision is paramount from start to finish. It offers unrivalled noise performance and sonic delivery and is designed to directly replace the AKG CK12 in existing builds or for bespoke microphone manufacturers.

Innovative Transformer Design

The Beesneez Tribute 2 incorporates a 13:1 tap wound mumetal toroidal transformer, which enhances performance by reducing direct current resistance and ensuring optimal impedance conversion. This meticulously crafted transformer boasts a compact size without compromising sound quality, ensuring a rich, interference-free audio experience.

Superior Tube Selection

Including a 6S6B-V Russian Military tube underlines BeesNeez's commitment to low noise and authentic tonal characteristics. Selected for its auditory resemblance to the Telefunken AC701K, this tube fortifies the Tribute 2 with a historic yet modern sonic excellence.

Sonic Excellence

Engineered to capture the esteemed smoothness of the original ELA M251 microphone, the Tribute 2 offers an open and present sound which continues to grace countless legendary recordings.

Robust Construction

BeesNeez doesn't compromise on build quality. The Tribute 2 microphone chassis is constructed from a single piece of cold-formed 380-grade brass, ensuring the microphone's resilience and longevity. The custom-made base and the meticulously machined bronze grill, coated with medical-grade nickel plating, speak volumes of its robustness and build integrity.
