    Dave Thomas replaces the 6J1B tube with a 6072a, and optionally replaces the stock transformer. Coupled with circuitry changes, these changes yield 6dB more headroom and higher SPL. The stock capsule can be swapped for a dual-diaphragm Peluso model such as the CEK-367.

Multi-Pattern Tube Condenser Microphone

The HAT60 is a large-diaphragm multipattern tube condenser mic.

The mic’s circuit incorporates a 6J1B tube. The dual-diaphragm capsule provides three pickup patterns (omni, cardioid, figure-of-8) that can be selected via a switch on the front of the microphone body.

CAD’s lookalike mic, the Trion 8000, has a reputation for being easy to modify, and that seems applicable here. Note that the Trion 8000 uses a different tube, the 6J1 (different from the 6J1B).

The Ningbo Alctron Electronics Co., Ltd. HAT60 is also known as: HAT-60, HST60, HST-60.
