The ADK Z-Mod Blue Suede Tube Microphone is ADK's top-of-the-line valve microphone. The Z-Mod takes ADK's already-great sounding CS Custom valve microphone (now discontinued) and adds an upgraded chrome grille, power-coat chassis, a selection of additional valves from Mullard, JJ Tesla, and Tung-Sol, and upgrades the cabling to include 1 AccuSound HD-7 Tube Mic XLR Cable and 1 Silver Studio-Pro XLR (The silver cabling alone, a $600 value! You can't get these commercially anymore!).

The ADK Z-Mod Tube Microphones are Class A (Discrete) 9 Polar-Pattern Tube (Valve) Condenser Microphones hand-built as "One-Offs" using a custom Belgium-Designed PC Board built with Hi-Fi methods and materials, using a "No-Corners-Cut" approach. Features German Hand-Selected Valve, Top-of-the-Line Components (like a USA Jensen Transformer) with Australian-Designed GK capsules from the Custom Shop "Capsule-Bank". Based on ADK's Area 51 TT chassis, this is a totally Customized Product can be custom-built "One-Off" for each client based on one's preference for Historical, Vintage Curves -Microphone Response Characteristics. So, if you want a specific color for your capsule choice, then we can do that!

Your Capsule:

  • ADK Custom Shop "Blue Suede" Z-Mod-67: The Z-Mod-67 has the early 60's vibe. Almost imperceptibly Mellow. Scoops nasal, sibilance issues in a subtle way. More presence than the 47, but less top-end.

Your Transformer:

  • Lundahl Transformer: Lundahl transformers are known for their flat-frequency-response. So, nothing is hyped here. This is a great choice with the Z-Mod-67 variant (makes the Z-Mod-67-L). The Lundahl keeps the top smooth and the perception of the mid-range is that it is increased. The lows stay well behaved - not bloomy. But certainly not a boring choice of transformer! The music is in the mid-range.
