Vacuum tube large-diaphragm microphone;
cardioid polar pattern for multiplicity of applications; exceptionally natural, warm sound;
tube sound enriches digital recordings; complete with many useful accessories and aluminum carrying case.
AKG SolidTube, the flagship of the Project Studio Line, is the first
microphone that combines the sound of classic vacuum tube technology and
the benefits of advanced solid state componentry at an affordable
price. Mechanical ruggedness, high SPL capability, and low self noise
are as natural SolidTube features as its warm tube sound.
heart of the SolidTube is the ECC 83 (12AX7) vacuum tube. It provides
excellent transfer characteristics and is readily available from musical
instrument dealers carrying spare parts for guitar amps. A ground lift
switch on the power supply eliminates unexpected ground loops quickly
and easily. Standard accessories include a spider type shock mount, pop
screen, power supply, cable, and strong carrying case.
microphones are very popular for their warm sound. The SolidTube
emphasizes even harmonics and adds low-level distortion that the ear
perceives as an enhancement to the sound.
