ADK Custom Shop Hamburg 67-T-FET Microphone

The ADK Custom Shop Hamburg 67-T-FET Microphone is pure Rock and Roll. The full forward mids give warm dimension, the silky top end provides pleasant detail, and the bottom end is full, but with a slight roll off that perfectly rounds the sound out (without losing depth). This is the quintessential male vocal mic. It also sounds amazing on acoustic guitars.

The ADK Custom Shop Hamburg 67-T-FET Microphone has the early 60's vibe - almost imperceptibly mellow. It scoops nasal, sibilance issues in a subtle way. The Hamburg 67-Au is based on a unique FET circuit that saturates gradually (unlike most condenser microphones which tend to clip abruptly). The Hamburg 67-Au boasts Australian-Designed Capsules, British Oxford Transformers, Hi-End Phillips Norelco Uber-FET. Manufactured with Hi-Fi Methods and Materials, including a $6 Resistor! It took three microphone experts including a PhD in Physics, a Design Genius in Belgium and a 40 year-old microphone collection (with many much older microphones) to create it! Add Two-Way Attenuation Pads (8 and 16 dB) to enable end-user to tailor the dynamic behavior of the microphone to the situation and obtain new textures, with rarely the need for outboard processors or even EQ. The Hamburg 67-T is a tri-polar microphone with selectable Cardioid, Figure-8, and Omni pickup patterns.

All Class-A F.E.T. design manufactured in 3 Zigma Aerospace Manufacturing facility with British Oxford Transformer, and premium quality Low-Noise 3 Zigma capsules with Vintage Voicing Curves. The audiophile circuitry differs from lesser-designs in that it is designed for Soft-Saturation at extremely high SPL as instead of going into the "crunch" and unpleasant distortion (not the good kind of distortion!) of hard-clipping.

What We Think

From Blues, to Hip Hop, to Metal, the ADK Hamburg 67 T-FET is the go to vocal mic. Male or Female, this mic is where it is at. Overall a smooth rich character, with a soft - yet detailed and airy top, balanced warm mids, and a low end with depth. After using the Hamburg, I quickly realized that my go-to vocal mic (for many years) was no longer going to cut it, and the Hamburg was where I needed to be. Consistently this is reaffirmed with the feedback I get from other musicians and engineers. The Hamburg quickly becomes a loved center piece of vocal chains.

Good microphone April 24, 2012
Reviewer: Yin Chun Chow from MidLevel West, Hong Kong Hong Kong  
This mic come with everything you'll possibly need!  Shockmount, Windscreen, Pop Screen, Pouch for the mic, flight case.  This is indeed a very nice feature.  

On to the sound, having only used it on male/female vox, ac guitar, I find it very pleasing overall.  Low end might not be as accurate as I'd hope for, while the top end has a thing in the 9-12k that annoys me slightly, it is still a very good mic for the price.  It is definitely miles up from the lower end mics like the MXL/CAD!
