Neumann M 269 C Microphone For Sale
Neumann M 269 C Microphone with Original Case For Sale
The M 269 is a large-diaphragm, multipattern tube condenser microphone. It is a variation of the Neumann U-67, developed as a way to sell the U-67 to the German broadcast market.
German broadcasters imposed requirements on the supply voltage of microphones. The EF86 tube in the U-67 did not meet these requirements. To satisfy broadcasters’ requirements, Neumann developed the M269 by making the following changes to the basic U-67 design:
- The EF86 was swapped for an AC701 (aka AC701k) triode vacuum tube.
- The “Omni” and “Figure 8” positions on the pattern selection switch below the headbasket are replaced by a remote-control feature labelled ‘F’; both positions (which function identically) allow the mic’s pickup pattern to be controlled remotely via the switch on the power supply. A side-effect of this feature is that the M269, unlike the U67, provides continuously-variable pattern selection.
- RF shielding was incorporated into the M269 plug.
Sold in great condition with its original power supply, cable and cradle. Also includes its original Neumann branded flight case.
