Beautiful on acoustic guitar, drum overheads, piano, voice and more. The P-28 features Peluso's heavy-duty 8-pin screw on cable connector. The large diameter pins in the screw on connector give a tight and secure cable connection designed to perform for a lifetime of use.

    Peluso p-28

    bitchin mic, everything a tube mic should be, can't overload, compresses and saturates in a musical and utilitarian way, gets the take, clean with a juicy character for the lead track,

What We Think


The Peluso P-28 is as stunning sounding a microphone on acoustic guitar as one could really hope for. Match it up with a 1073 style preamp, and you're pretty much on your way. The P28 is somewhat of a hybrid between a KM54 and a C28. But, while the name may allude to maybe being a C28 clone, it is more of it's own thing - but definitely right in the same vein as these two legendary coveted microphones. With a somewhat more excited sounding upper-high-frequency response (but without sounding 'clicky') and a robust low end. The mid-range is slightly scooped, while the upper mids are slightly more forward and pronounced. The Peluso P28 is definitely the mic for folks disenchanted with something like your typical modern-day transformerless solid-state small diaphragm condenser mic (boy, that's a mouthful!). Expect dimension and fullness. Great for lovers of great analog sound and a nice antidote to the cold sterility of digital recording without losing the clarity of a condenser capsule.
