Soundelux USA has released the U195 cardioid fet P48 microphone.
It’s based on the original Soundelux U195, in production from 1996-2006, and the Bock 195, in production from 2007-2014.
The U195 is a phantom-powered single, low-noise, wide-band fet mic coupled with Soundelux USA’s k67 capsule. It maintains the “FAT” switch low-frequency control and its output transformer.
“The U195 can satisfy a wide range of applications for engineers and studios that may have a few expensive models, but need to fill out their mic cabinet without breaking the budget,” said California-based David Bock, who oversees the manufacturer of the microphones for Soundelux in the U.S.
The new Soundelux USA version of the U195 “was optimized removing the patterns, removing bandwidth restrictions, multiplying the transformer size and removing the atonal inharmonic fet bias system,” the company said in an announcement.
The Soundelux USA U195 is priced at $1,249.
