Gefell Decca Tree Set 2 - Dark Bronze

Large Decca Tree set with three factory matched M 221 studio condenser mics
MFR# 2111162

Product Description

The Gefell Decca Tree - Set 2 is supplied complete with a matched set of three M 221 microphones in a suitcase. The tree can be stand mounted or slung (with optional hanging brackets) and has fully adjustable mounting positions. The kit comprises of: 6 x 57 cm arms, 1 x T-piece, 3 x jointing pieces.

Gefell M 221

The M 221 condenser microphone unifies universal small diaphragm capsule technology with a metal diaphragm and a modular preamplifier. The use of a certificated measurement capsule combined with a preamplifier with 48 V phantom powering reaches a constant magnitude and phase response and transmission properties which are long-term stable.

Because of the small capsule dimensions the M 221 is ideally suited for applications where a low interference with the sound field is demanded. It is usable as a main microphone for recordings which should include a certain amount of the room response. As well the M 221 is suited as a spot microphone for recording instruments very close where the low frequencies should be transmitted in detail and original. Moreover it can be used for multichannel main microphone arrangements like AB stereophony or decca tree. For these applications the microphone is ideal because of its precise and long-time stable transmission properties. The M 221 has an excellent transient response because of the pressure transducer capsule and is really suitable to record instruments with extreme transients. With the both different sized spherical corpuses a high frequency accentuation can be produced in an acoustical way to increase the presence and to compensate the high frequency roll-off in the diffuse sound field.

The M 221 can operate also in unfavorable climate conditions especially referring the temperature and air humidity for which the accessory humidity adaptor TA 202 is purchasable.

Acoustical Specifications

The pick-up pattern is equivalent to the longitudinal direction of the microphone. As sound transducer a condenser capsule with a diameter of 12,5 mm and a very thin metal diaphragm is used. The pressure transducer capsule exhibits an omni-directional polar pattern without proximity effect. Because of the free field equalization the M 221 has a constant frequency response from 3,5 Hz up to 20 kHz (± 2 dB). The static pressure equalization between the capsule interior and the atmosphere goes through a vent to the preamplifier. Therefore the humidity adaptor TA 202 is usable to protect the microphone in application with high air humidity. The use of the M 221 with the spherical corpus KA 3 effects a frequency response accentuation which begins at approximately 1 kHz and goes constant at 3 dB from approximately 4 kHz up to 12 kHz. With the spherical corpus KA 4 the accentuation of the high frequencies starts also at approximately 1 kHz and goes constant at 3 dB between 3 kHz and 12 kHz.

Electrical Specifications

The transformerless circuit design of the electronic impedance converter with symmetrical output facilitates an output capability for sound pressures from15 dB(A) up to 136 dB with a maximum of 0.5 % THD (total harmonic distortion). The microphone is connected by a standard 3-pin XLR-male plug with gold-plated pins which realizes the powering by an external 48 V phantom supply according to IEC 61938 with a current consumption of 6 mA.

Mechanical Specifications

The M 221 consists of a microphone capsule and a microphone preamplifier as independent mechanic parts which are connected to a complete microphone through a screw thread. Microphone capsule and microphone preamplifier have an identical overall diameter of 12.7 mm which enlarges to 21 mm over the length of the microphone preamplifier to the connection side of the microphone. The shape of this enlargement is designed for a minimum interference with the sound field. Microphone capsule and microphone preamplifier have together a length of 170.4 mm. On the connection side of the M 221 there are standard microphone holders mountable. To reach a higher attenuation against solid-born sound and impulses there are elastic holders and suspensions usable. The weight of the M 221 is 123 g what allows to use the microphone with stand mountings as well as to hang up the microphone from the ceiling without any problems.

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
Ryan F.
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.
Martin C.
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.
Phil T.
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!
Robby T.
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
Jake D.
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.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Rob M.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
Alan B.
Better than expected! Truly impeccable service. Your team was professional, knowledgeable, provided speedy delivery above and beyond standard. Vintage King Audio is definitely my go to for all of my audio and information needs.
