The Bock 251 is a large diaphragm studio microphone that emulates a vintage 251. The design uses a hand-wound multi-section transformer. This is over-sized to provide very low distortion at extreme LF. Distortion is primarily 2 nd harmonic and rises relatively slowly (2% @129 dB). The capsule is a German 1″ dual diaphragm design with an asymmetrical C12-like back-plate. The tube electronics are based on a GE5670 with a resistive, rather than transistor, load. Polar patterns are switchable.
