Multi-Pattern Tube Condenser Microphone

The CR998 is a tube-and-transformer based multipattern condenser.

The capsule is 797 Audio’s version of the Neumann K67: a center-terminated, dual-diaphragm design.

Polar pattern control is effected by a 9-way rotary switch on the power supply.

See also the 797 Audio U95S (link in sidebar), which is the same microphone with different exterior metalwork.
