Product Description
Additional Information
  • Product Description

    This is no clone, this is history continuing. The handmade Gefell CMV 563 / M7S is crafted in Gefell, Germany, where the original CMV 563 tube microphone was born in 1956. There, the small, dedicated team has revived one of history's most enduring designs and bridged the decades-long gap by ensuring today's capsules are interchangeable with yesterday's. The CMV 563 / M7S comes equipped with a cardioid M7 capsule, a design redrawn from the original M7 drawing dated May 26, 1950. The bottom line is, it's all here: the look, the vibe, the tone, the workmanship, the legacy. The Gefell CMV 563 / M7S.

    • History's classic design lives on
    • Meticulous craftsmanship and rigorous testing
    • Gorgeous packaging befitting the classic microphone

    History's classic design lives on
    While many have dared to copy the CMV 563's classic interchangeable design, the original CMV 563 and its capsules have stayed the standard. The CMV 563 / M7S is a seamless continuation of its rich history, as painstakingly faithful to the original 1956-released microphone as today's reasonably available parts and electrical standards allow. Gefell did choose to use an EF86 tube in place of the EC92, ensuring consistent, low-noise, high-dynamic-range operation in the circuit. The end result is the Gefell CMV 563 at its very best — nothing rebuilt, restored, or uncertain. It's a sure thing. When you want that big, beautiful old-school tube mojo, the CMV 563 / M7S is your ticket.

    Use vintage capsules with the CMV 563 / M7S
    While the CMV 563 / M7S comes with a brand-new but vintage-design-derived M7 cardioid capsule (the "S" in the name stands for "short"), you have options. The Gefell CMV 563 / M7S seamlessly works with vintage capsules, making this microphone among the most versatile tube microphones available. The CMV 563 / M7S comes with a G/B adapter, allowing you to use the mic with bayonet-type capsules in addition to screw-type capsules.

    Meticulous craftsmanship and rigorous testing
    When a microphone comes out of the Gefell lab, you know it's been thoroughly vetted — from the initial design process (in this case, a history-proven, 45-year-strong design) to a mic-by-mic examination and three-way quality test to ensure every spec and characteristic is spot on. Individual tubes are specially selected after a tube-by-tube measurement and listening process. Each microphone is finally measured in an anechoic chamber and thoroughly listened to, examined, and evaluated before being made available for sale.

    Gorgeous packaging befitting the classic microphone
    With no corners cut, the Gefell CMV 563 / M7S is presented in a sharp mahogany-colored wooden case with a blue interior, showing off the body of the mic. Included, you get the CMV 563, the M7S capsule, the C 563.1 microphone cable, the EA 92 elastic suspension, and the G/B adapter.
