The Neumann M 49 V is a recreation of the legendary M49 Tube condenser microphone with the same silky, warm, deep and rich sound. 

The Neumann M 49 V is acoustically identical to a vintage version, sounding indistinguishable from the original even in direct A/B comparison. It boasts three polar patterns (omni, cardioid and figure-of-eight) accessible via the NM V Pattern Control Unit and PSU). 

However, Neumann has taken the opportunity to extend the low-frequency response, allowing users to drop the frequency from the original 30Hz to 12Hz if they so choose to suit more modern production styles.

The M49 V also features the possibility of using a new circuit, turning the microphone into a fixed-cardioid polar pattern. The new circuit increases the microphone’s sensitivity by 2dB and reduces the equivalent noise level by 3dB resulting in a more intimate sound. Please select the appropriate version before checkout.

Handbuilt in Germany, using rare triode tubes. The M 49 V will only be available as a limited edition. This iconic tube microphone ships in a rugged case and includes the PSU/Pattern Control Unit, a Cable, Shock mount, and safety and quick guides.
