Microtech Gefell M 1030

  • condenser microphone
  • cardioid
  • large diaphragm capsule
  • PE diaphragm
  • transistor pre-amplifier
  • phantom powering P48


The studio condenser microphone M 1030 combines modern large diaphragm capsule technology with the latest in semiconductor circuit topology. The size of the microphone housing is optimized with regard to the expectations of a large diaphragm microphone for studio applications. The microphone is specifically designed to meet the needs of professional and semiprofessional users who demand the highest performance. The microphones are ideally suited for universal miking applications in broadcast and sound studios. Applications include vocalists, announcers, dialog pickup, and as spot microphones for recording guitars, keyboard, percussion, wind, and string instruments.The electronic impedance converter uses a perfected circuit topology. This design reduces the noise floor to an extremely low level while also raising the maximum output capability. As a result, these microphones have a clean, distortion-free sound over an extremely wide dynamic range. RFI susceptibility is very low.
