Neumann Gefell produced the The CMV 563 condenser microphones from 1956 til 1971. This tube microphone became popular for its great price/performance ratio.
CMV 563 comes with an M7 "bayonet" capsule, but it can also be paired with an M55k omnidirectional capsule.
The M7 capsule barely needs an introduction, it is a cardioid capsule found in the Neumanns famous U47 mic.
The capsule is separated from the microphone amplifier body with a short pillar 'stalk'. It is a dual-diaphragm, center-terminated capsule with diaphragms reskinned with Mylar/Gold of original gauge exclusively. The CMV 563 is perfect for capturing the nuances of vocals and other instruments for a nostalgic and accurate sound.
This CMV 563 has been Recapped and serviced. It comes with a brand new Drefahl DN221-E PSU & Sommer tube cable and connectors. VTC 57 Shock Mount is included.
