Gefell M 300 Stereo Set - Vintage King Edition

M300 stereo set in an aluminum case
MFR# M300 Stereo Set - Vintage King Edition

Product Description

The Gefell M 300 is a compact condenser microphone in studio quality.  The frequency response of the transmission factor is practically linear for a wide range of sound incidence and has a smooth treble boost rising to about 3 dB between 6 and 10 kHz.  The miniature microphone is well suited for vocal and instrumental soloists. lt permits a lifelike recording also at various sound incidence, e.g. announcer in synchronous studios, speaker, blower.

The M 300 is designed for studio applications in radio, television broadcasting and films for live performance and recording of instruments, vocals and speech and sound reinforcement in the professional and semiprofessional market also under adverse acoustic conditions, e.g. in churches.

A new low-noise integrated hybrid circuit and the transformer-less circuit design guarantee an extremely wide dynamic range by a low equivalent loudness level and a high reliability in operation.  RFI susceptibility is very low.

The microphone is powered by a three-pin XLR connector with the C 70 microphone cable.  The power supply is provided by 48 V phantom powering, which is internationally standardized as P 48 in DIN 45596 and IEC 268-15.  A two-channel powering is possible with the N 200 power supply.

The finish of the miniature microphone is dark bronze.

I have a pair of Gefell M310 microphones that are used primarily for boom work on film and TV recording projects. I began using them for music recording as well and wanted a cardioid sister set to go with the M310 and thus acquired a set of M300.

The M300 microphone simply delivers a sweet, sweet capture of most audio sources. The way it delivers captured sound is quite lovely and truly exceeded my expectations.

In the frequency plot, it appears the high frequency bump will be a problem, but the truth of the matter is the M300 in no way sounds as bright as that plot might imply. I have used quite a few other small diaphragm condenser with similar high frequency bumps that deliver a harsh, strident capture. If that is the experience you have as well, you should do yourself a favor and audition the M300 and listen to what that frequency bump SHOULD sound like.

With regard to how the M300 compares the the M310, they are a great match and very useful tool set. Of course the M310 has a more tight frequency pattern and on many instruments and settings, the difference is clearly audible. For example, on snare drum, the M300 permits substantially more bleed from adjacent parts of the drum set while the M310 delivers a very defined capture of the snare drum (and has become my favorite snare drum microphone as a result!). The M310 has a more flat response up top with the M310 delivering a more sweet sounding top end in many cases. But honestly, they have similar characteristics and it is no surprise given they use the same capsule. They are great sibling microphones proving a useful tool set for a variety of situations.

I need to make a special mention to the Vintage King Stereo Set: It is a real deal. Compare the price of a stereo set of the M300 from Gefell and then look at the VK stereo set. Consider the shock mounts, the stereo bar and the pair of really nice mic cables all packed into a tidy case. It is a real deal and I can see no reason to acquire the M300 stereo set any other way than via the Vintage King package.

I have owned quite a few small diaphragm condensers and used many others. The Gefell M300 is a real work horse delivering some of the best capture one could ever hope for. I humbly believe the M300 will compare favorably to ANY other small diaphragm condenser or any era. One set of ears might prefer another brand/ model in a shoot-out, but when comparing multiple mics in a shoot-out, I believe the M300 would always be chosen as one of the best.

The M300 is priced appropriately for the level of quality it provides when compared with its peers.

For my part, the Gefell small diaphragm condensers I own I will keep until I no long own any sound equipment... and even then, they will be some of the last gear to go. If you are looking to buy a small diaphragm condenser or a stereo set, do yourself a big favor and audition the M300.

Great sounding mic set .... I found them not to color the instrument being recorded..primarily purchased for recording acoustic guitar and I’m quite happy with the purchase. ...great quality mic set, came with needed accessories and a substantial case...not to mention the great pricing I git from vintage king!

couldnt afford a vintage pair of KM84's and was looking for an alternative. Called my guy at VK and he suggested I check out these Gefells. He said he was sure I'd like them and if not I could return them. Sweet and natural sounding top end like 84's with that perfect tighter bottom end for all kinds of tracking - acoustic gtrs, drum OV's, hi hat, piano's - you name it. super pleased for the money

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.
