Great on Vocals!

When the rock-'n'-roll era had begun in late 50's, some engineers were recording loud vocals with singers singing directly into microphones at very close range; when the U 47 or U 48 were used in this way, the result was considered by many engineers at the time to sound unacceptably harsh. (This could be considered ironic, since the U 47 and U 48 have a cult following today specifically for use in close-up vocals, with some engineers seeming to fancy that they are re-creating a "vintage" sound--whereas in fact, they're creating a sound quality that was specifically abhorred by the "golden ears" of the era.) The result was the U 67, a microphone with less emphasis in its upper midrange response, giving it less of a "forward" tone color.

Designed as the successor to the infamous U 47, the Neumann U 67 large diaphragm tube condenser is one of the most sought after vintage microphones in the world. The U 67 utilizes the EF-86 tube and a K-67 capsule. This particular example is quite rare because it is badged "Telefunken" and not "Neumann."
