The Flamingo ME is a large diaphragm cardioid vacuum tube condenser microphone. It features a “Magic Ear” capsule, shaped like an ear and a proprietary “Golden Drops” alloy sputtered diaphragm . This ear shaped capsule together with the acoustically transparent head construction provides resonance free response. The Class-A discrete preamplifier drives a 6267 vacuum tube and a large custom-wound audio transformer. The power supply employs a sequential soft start and connects to the microphone with a very high quality multi-wire cable. Includes shock mount, power supply, VTC-06 6 metre microphone cable, wooden box and mains cable.
