K804 Mic II, aka Elf Dildo

 

While I innocently designed this mic to have forms of Gothic art and Art Deco, all the people around me associate the forms with Lord of the Rings movies, Elrond and a dildo. Sorry about that.

 

This acoustically transparent but sturdy and beautiful mic is produced with bronze casting, machining, blacking and polishing. The real magic how ever is inside. With the typical Knif practices all electrolytic capacitors are eliminated from the signal path and anode power supply. Signal from the NOS Telefunken EF804S tube’s anode is taken to Lundahl output transformer through Mundorf Tin foil cap. I dare to say that this is the most transparent sounding tube microphone head amp, which effortlessly delivers the signal picked up by the capsule and delivers it to mic pre amp.

 

Directivity pattern can be adjusted from the power supply in nine steps from figure eight to omni. There is also a -10dB pad. Cabling is Mogami.

 

The mic can be equipped with several capsule models.
