Mods for the V69 ME

  • Microphone PartsMicrophone Parts
    The V69ME has an aggressive, sharp presence peak of +7dB @ 11kHz, which rises from 0dB at 6kHz. The RK-47 capsule revoices this hyped high end with a much broader and flatter peak (+4dB @ 5kHz).

Cardioid Tube Condenser Microphone

The MXL V69 is a large diaphragm tube condenser microphone with a fixed Cardioid polar pattern.

V69 ME CircuitIts circuit is somewhat unusual in that it is a 2-stage tube/fet design, with solid-state amplification following the initial tube stage. Moreover, it has a transistor-based impedance conversion circuit rather than a transformer on the output.

The circuit’s response contains high-frequency attenuation.

The capsule is MXL’s standard 32mm K67 type.

MXL began referring to the V69 as the “V69ME” (for “Mogami Edition”) in 2008/2009. No changes to the mic’s construction or components have been made since the socketed 12AT7 tube was introduced within this mic (replacing a soldered miniature tube).

The MXL V69 ME is also known as: V69ME, V69-ME.

The mic was released in 2002.
