Manley Labs is proud to announce that its Manley Reference Silver Microphone has been nominated for the prestigious 2019 NAMM TEC Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in the category Microphones – Recording. Inspired by the classic 1950s Sony C-37A condenser microphone, the Manley Reference Silver Microphone delivers a warm, rich, creamy tone, thanks to an American-built capsule by David Josephson and Manley-designed circuitry. Josephson’s single-sided, large-diaphragm (1-inch) capsule is an impressive re-creation of the C-37’s C-3 capsule, including an adjustable acoustic chamber on the rear of the capsule that enables the user to switch between cardioid and omni pickup patterns.
Boasting a mic-grade 5670 vacuum tube, Manley IRON® transformers, and a low-noise, switch-mode power supply, the Manley Reference Silver Microphone is a studio workhorse. It’s a great choice for anything from female vocalists to saxophones, from drum overheads to banjos, and anywhere that you might normally consider using a ribbon microphone. Yet it can handle the loudest instruments, such as snare drum, guitars, and toms. A brass section will sound rich and cohesive.
The Manley Silver Reference Microphone is equipped with the company’s proprietary precision suspension system, and the capsule is mounted onto a rubber shock-mount. Manley’s custom-designed swivel features a T-bar handle and locking clutch action that require no tools to adjust. A genuine leather capsule protector slips and ties onto the end of the microphone to protect the capsule when not in use, and the microphone is packaged in a rugged carrying-case.
