Neumann U67 Condenser Microphone

The Neumann U67 Condenser Microphone is hands down one of the most recognizable and desired mics on the planet. Now meticulously reissued, the U67 is back again and better than ever! This is a historically accurate reproduction direct from Germany!

The Neumann U67 Condenser Microphone origins begins in the late 50s, as the successor to Neumann's flagship microphone, the Neumann U47. The VF14 tube, which helped contribute to the U47 sound, was being withdrawn from production by Telefunken, necessitating the creation of a new microphone.

The Neumann U67 Condenser Microphone features a host of new technological advancements. Mylar was used for the capsule membrane, held in tension by a brass ring as opposed to glue; an internal cutoff filter and external pad switch helped counteract the proximity effect; a new dual-capsule created an accurate figure-of-eight pickup pattern; a smaller EF86 tube allowed for a slimmer body; and most importantly the overall shape of the microphone changed. The new iconic look featured a tapered head grille, and a tapered body shell. So unique was this mic design, that Neumann patented it.

Neumann originally named their new microphone the U60, after the year of its creation. This was later amended to the "U67", showing continuity with its parent microphone, the U47. By 1967, the predecessor was no longer manufactured, and the successor reigned supreme as the large diaphragm tube mic of choice for audio professionals worldwide; a condenser mic that can be used on almost any instrument or vocalist with outstanding results.

What We Think

I don't think that much needs to be said about the Neumann U67. Even if you have never used one, you know of it - it is that iconic. Probably best known as the quintessential vocal mic for male vocalists (especially in rock music), it also kills on acoustic guitars, and electric guitars (one of my favorites for clean electric guitars). It is so known and loved, that there have been countless clones over the years. But, there is nothing quite like the original. Which is why it is so exciting to see Neumann not only bring it back - but revive it in all it's original tone and glory. This is 100% the real deal!
