The Tribute 2 is a multi pattern tube condenser microphone. It has been designed to capture the smooth nature of the original 251 microphone. The sound is very open and present, but still has an amazing smoothness to it. The capsule used in the Tribute 2 is the BeesNeez CK12 capsule. Like the original AKG CK12, this multi-chambered capsule is, without a doubt, the most complicated capsule available and the accuracy that is achieved is only possible with the best possible machining and care. Each CK12 capsule is entirely manufactured, hand-lapped, and diaphragmed by Ben Sneesby personally. The transformer in the Tribute 2 is a 13:1 tape wound mu metal toroidal transformer. The advantage of this transformer for this type of microphone is that it makes possible to reduce turn count and increase wire size, thus reducing DC resistance, while maintaining correct impedance conversion. Its characteristics are very smooth with no frequency ring or non-linear response within the listening curve. The Tribute 2 uses a 6S6B-V Russian Military tube. The microphone includes swivel mount connector and lead, tribute series power supply and wooden box.
