MXL V67i Tube
Tube Condenser Microphone
MXL’s V67i Tube is essentially a tube-amplified version of the V67i. Both mics are dual-capsule, large-diaphragm condensers with a unique “warm/bright” switch to control the selection of the front or rear capsule.
Both capsules measure 32mm (OD), with a 25mm diaphragm. One has a 6-micron Mylar diaphragm; the other has an 8-micron Mylar diaphragm. Both are gold-sputtered and center-terminated.
The two capsules differ primarily in their high-frequency response; the “bright” side has 6dB higher response above about 4kHz, and 2dB lower response below 200Hz. Note that even the “Warm” mode has a pronounced HF peak (+4dB @ 10kHz), so the “Bright” mode is even more hyped (+11dB @ 9kHz).
Capsule selection (meaning, front or back) is confirmed by red LEDs mounted inside the headbasket.
The amplifier circuit uses a 12AT7 dual-triode tube.
The V67i Tube ships with a dedicated power supply, a Mogami power cable, a 15' Mogami XLR cable, a foam windscreen, an elastic shockmount (p/n MXL-57), a hard mount (p/n MXL MT-001) and an aluminum flight case.
