What do you look for in your studio microphones? Accuracy? Clarity? The ability to capture the special character of the voice or instrument? Manley's Gold Reference Multi-pattern mics do all that and more.
Recently redesigned for the super-quiet Sovtek 12AX7LPS vacuum tube, the design and technical specifications of the Gold Reference Mics are of the highest standards. The capsules (1.25 inch overall, 1 inch diaphragm diameter) are Manley's own design; the capsule rings and back-plates are milled from solid brass and are mounted on Teflon insulator rings. The 3 micron gold diaphragm film is tensioned using proprietary techniques which ensures capsule-to-capsule consistency, combined with the speed, air and superb ultra-high frequency response you dream about. The polar pattern control is continuously variable between omni, cardioid and figure 8 positions
But it's what all the impressive technical expertise adds up to that really matters. What you get with the Gold Reference mics is superb sound in a class by itself. Add the Manley Gold Reference mics to your studio and we're sure you'll agree that they are easily some of the finest mics money can buy. Comes complete in a locking carrying case.
If you're going to sell (or try to sell) a mike at four grand, it needs to look as well as sound The Biz, and Manley's Reference Gold, with its outrageous styling and 24-carat gold-plate finish, certainly scores ten in the 'wow' stakes.
