Neumann M49 V

Tube microphone with continuously variable and remotely switchable polar pattern

The legendary tube microphone of the 50s and 60s is finally back in stock. In original.

Introduced in 1951, the M49 revolutionized studio technology with its infinitely variable, remotely switchable polar pattern. And, of course, with its incomparably full and smooth sound, which has left its mark on countless recordings to date. The M 49 V is what many have been looking forward to: a reissue to original specification!

The beginning of something great

The M 49 is a great microphone in every respect. Its physical appearance is as impressive as its incomparable sound. With its revolutionary technology, the M 49 has set new standards. The M 49 is a true Neumann legend.

the goal itself was grandiose: in the early 1950s, in collaboration with Nordwestdeutscher Rundfunk (German Northwest Radio), a reference microphone was developed which was to replace all previous ones. Instead of having to replace the capsule to change the directional characteristic, the M 49 allowed remote control of the polar pattern from the power supply, continuously. With its balanced frequency response in all directional patterns, from omnidirectional to cardioid to figure-8, including the intermediate settings, the M 49 is a truly universal microphone: be it orchestra, piano, trumpet or vocals. , the M 49 is suitable for recordings of all kinds at the highest level. As a result, the M 49 was, and still is, in great demand. No other tube-era Neumann microphone has been produced for a longer period: from 1951 to 1971. Countless legendary recordings, from cool jazz to modern-day pop, bear his elegant sonic signature. M 49 is an indissoluble part of the Neumann DNA.

The best of the best

Finally the legend is available again! The M 49 V is a reissue of the latest revision c. Over the years, the M 49 has been continuously improved: the originally installed Hiller MSC2 valve was replaced by the Telefunken AC701 valve and then the AC701k.This and other circuit modifications improved the signal-to-noise ratio, dynamic range and performance. interference immunity. In parallel, a broadcast version was released, the M 249, with an RF-proof connector.

The M 49 V uses the same circuitry as the M 49 c, but with an even lower noise sub-miniature tube. As high frequency interference has increased dramatically due to mobile phone networks and WiFi, the RF-proof connector has been adopted by the M 249.

The supplied NM V model control unit is designed to automatically provide the optimum heating voltage for both the M 49 V and any historical M 49; it also adapts automatically to the local mains voltage. In addition, the M 49 V set includes the iconic yoke attachment, whose flexible positioning has contributed to the enormous popularity of the M 49. The M 49 V set comes in a high quality case which, like the entire microphone , is handmade in Germany.
