Vintage King is excited to announce that the Gefell CMV 563 M7S has just started shipping. If you're familiar with mic history, those letters and numbers are no coincidence. Gefell has officially returned to producing one of its most highly acclaimed microphones in the brand's history.
The original 1956-born tube condenser mic features an interchangeable capsule system, making it a beyond-viable option for nearly any application. The storied mic-maker has successfully bridged its decades-long production gap by ensuring that the new and vintage capsules are seamlessly interchangeable.
The mic itself boasts the same big, old-school tube personality we've come to expect from the vintage pieces, with an EF86 in place of the EC92 for consistent low-noise, high-dynamic-range operation. With the CMV 563 M7S, you receive the cardioid M7 capsule, a design redrawn from the original M7 drawing, dating as far back as 1950.
The CMV 563 M7S is presented in a mahogany-colored wooden case that showcases the vintage look, and includes the expected accessories, such as a beefy supply and elastic suspension, plus the bonus of an adapter for both bayonet and screw-type capsule attachments.
