Neumann resurrects an icon with M 49 V

German studio specialist Neumann.Berlin has reissued the M 49 studio microphone. Characterised for its continuously remote-controlled polar pattern, the M 49 is in great demand both amongst collectors and as a vital recording tool.

Handmade and hand soldered in Germany, the M 49 V is a reissue according to original specifications and design documents from the Neumann archive. It uses the same circuitry as the most popular historical revision, the M 49 c, but with a lower noise, hand-selected sub miniature tube. The pattern control unit automatically adapts to the mains voltage and is also compatible with old M 49 microphones. Replacing the old bayonet connector, the M 49 V uses the RF-tight connector of the historic M 249 broadcast version. In addition, the M 49 V can be configured via internal switches, either as a made-to-order option or post-sales by Neumann Service.

Protecting its BV11 output transformer from unwanted distortion, the infrasonic filter can be lowered from 30Hz to 12Hz, resulting in the frequency response of the early M 49 up to 1957. Improving the signal-to-noise ratio by approximately 3dB, the M 49 V can be set to a fixed cardioid pickup pattern when used exclusively for vocals and speech. The M 49 V comes as a set with remote pattern control unit, microphone cable, and a classic “yoke” swivel mount in a handcrafted case.
