The Gefell M 1030 studio condenser microphone combines modern large diaphragm capsule technology with the latest in semiconductor circuit topology.  The size of the microphone housing is optimized with regard to the expectations of a large diaphragm microphone for studio applications.


  • Extreme dynamic range
  • Noise floor 7 dB-A
  • Large diaphragm capsule
  • Polar pattern cardioid
  • Universal applications
  • Advanced circuit design
  • Transformerless output
  • Internal elastic suspension
  • Optical ready indicator

The microphone is specifically designed to meet the needs of professional and semi-professional users who demand the highest performance.  The microphones are ideally suited for universal miking applications in broadcast and sound studios.  Applications include vocalists, announcers, dialog pickup and as spot microphones for recording guitars, keyboard, percussion, wind and string instruments.

The pick-up pattern is perpendicular to the direction of the microphone axis (side addressed).  The model number and pick-up pattern symbol mark the front of the microphone.  The green LED inside the protection grid operates as optical ready indicator.

The condenser capsule exhibits a smooth frequency response with a slight presence boost in the 8 to 14 kHz range.  The polar response exhibits an exceptionally high degree of rejection for sounds impinging from the rear (cardioid) or sides (super-cardioid) of the microphone.  The electronic impedance converter uses a newly perfected circuit topology.  This design reduces the noise floor to an extremely low level while also raising the maximum output capability.  As a result, this microphone have a clean, distortion free sound over an extremely wide dynamic range.  RFI susceptibility is very low.

The microphone capsule and electronics are elastically suspended inside the compact metal housing.   This reduces the sensitivity to mechanical impact and structure born noise.

The microphone stand holder MH 93.1 can be exchanged for an elastic suspension EA 92 with the adapter A 93 to further attenuate noise in extreme situations.  The M 1030 connect to the microphone cable with a standard three-pin XLR plug.  Powering must be provided by an external 48 V phantom supply according to DIN 45596 and IEC 268-15.

The microphone is finished in satin matte.
