BeesNeez Arabella Tube Mic – No Longer Available

Hand-built to encapsulate the essence of of the U47/U48 with the versatility and build quality of the M49
MFR# ARAU1

Product Description

The BeesNeez Arabella has been designed from the ground up, not to be a clone microphone. It does share lineage with a few classics, namely the Neumann U47 and M49 and has been designed to take the best of each to make an extremely versatile microphone.

The Arabella is the third Tube microphone designed and released by BeesNeez.  Not being a clone manufacturer, we wanted to create something different; we wanted to capture the essence of of the venerable U47/U48 with the versatility and build quality of the M49.  How did we do it?  The answer is simple.  Take only the best materials (bronze and Brass), NOS European steel Vacuum Tubes, Paper in oil and foil film Capacitors, American made resistors that have been designed for use in medical imaging add to this a hybrid capsule that captures the sound of the M7 with the stability and repeatability of the K47 mixed with over 1000 hours in R&D and last but certainly not least, build the entire microphone in our factory including the ENTIRE power supply.

The Arabella met and in many cases exceeded every expectation that we set out to achieve in the beginning. Sonically we wanted to create a microphone that had a sense of cochlear linearity ie; hears and creates an amplified analogy of what we hear.  The Arabella is a great classic sounding microphone that is a real goto, great for male and female vocals, natural sounding rooms and can take a real beating on drums or amp cabs.  Often when we are asked what the Arabella sounds like we say “It’s like a mansion with the entire front wall missing, open and huge with a classic expensive sound”.  As always, the Arabella is back by our all inclusive warranty and our money back guarantee “if you’re not absolutely floored by the performance and sound of the mic you can swap or return it for a full refund”.

The Arabella features our dual lapped K7 capsule, European Steel tube, Cinemag 2461NICO transformer and 9 polar patterns.

The Arabella comes with a hand built power supply, Gotham GA7C microphone cable, 60 mm suspension mount and carry case.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
