P-67

Vacuum Tube Large Diaphragm Condenser

In 1960, the U 67 sought to deliver smoother highs, a solid bass and a rich detailed mid-range while introducing some new technical advances. 

Proximity effect is the low-end boost created when a vocalist gets very close to a microphone. It can have a very powerful effect, but can leave the bottom end muddy and boomy. To handle this, the '67 introduced a low-end roll-off switch. For very loud sources like drums or certain guitar amps, a -10 dB pad switch was also introduced. Though the much-loved steel body VF14 tube of the U 47 had been discontinued, a lower noise floor was now possible with the new glass pentode tube. A more accurate figure-eight polar pattern was also now possible thanks to the development of the double back plate K67 capsule. Manufactured from 1960 to 1971 the U 67 was the versatile workhorse of professional recording studios of the time. The Peluso P-67 is a faithful tribute to this treasured microphone.

      The sound character is full, rich and smooth, with its solid, well-focused mid-range and crisp, bright top end, balanced nicely by a firm and well-extended bottom end. If I had to sum up the P-67's character in two words, I'd say 'smooth and creamy'!

      In our experience, Neumann U67s are much like U87s. You can put one in most situations and get a usable sound straight away, but where a U87 might sound pretty good, a U67 will often sound wonderful.  That sums up our time with the P-67. It’s not fussy about placement; it makes recording easy and it just works – really well!
