The Peluso CEK 89/S Microphone Capsule is an single sided Neumann style microphone capsule designed by Peluso for great frequency and transient response.
These capsules are made by Peluso Microphone Lab. They buy the metal work from China and then the sputtering and diaphragm work is done at their lab in the U.S. These are very nice capsules, with great frequency and transient response. These are of the finest quality, and with the costly machine shop work done in China, we can sell them at a fraction of the cost of a comparable German capsule.
Front End Audio strongly recommends purchasing the Peluso Saddle & Stem with this capsule, as most stock Saddle & Stems do not fit Peluso replacement capsules.

I bought this capsule to use as an upgrade mod for my MXL 960 mic. It is exactly the same size as the stock capsule, so it's and easy swap. The result? Much improved mid-range clarity and much smoother highs. Definately worth the investment!!
