Gefell M 930 Ts Cardioid Condenser Microphone - Bronze

Large diaphragm microphone with output transformer - very low noise floor and a high sound pressure level even at high external load
MFR# 2111137

Product Description

The Gefell M 930 Ts unifies approved large diaphragm capsule technology with an optimized output transformer and a new developed circuit design. That attains a signal transmission with negligible distortion combined with a lower low frequency response, a very low noise floor and a high sound pressure level even at high external load.

Application

Because of its compact dimensions of the M 930 Ts is ideally suited for applications where an optical inconspicuousness is demanded. It can be placed on speaker desks in radio stations as well as for recordings of dialog pickups, audio books and in dubbing studios. Moreover it can be used as a main microphone for recordings of solo instruments or vocals, as spot microphone for recording instrumental groups and for setting up multichannel main microphone arrangements.

Acoustical Specifications

The pick-up pattern is perpendicular to the direction of the microphone axis (side adressed) and is marked by the model number and the polar pattern symbol. The company logo is at the reverse side of the microphone. A condenser microphone capsule with a diameter of 28 mm and a gold-plated polyester membrane is installed as sound transducer. The polar pattern is cardioid with a very high attenuation of rear sound incidence. The M 930 Ts has a constant frequency response with an accentuation of approximately 2,5 dB between 6 kHz and 12 kHz to raise the speech and high-frequency presence. The change of the low end frequency response caused by the proximity effect is well-balanced without a very strong overemphasis at small microphone distances

Electrical Specifications

The newly optimized circuit topology of the impedance converter leads in combination with the specially designed output transformer to a very high transmission level range for sound pressure levels from 7 dB(A) to 144 dB with a maximum of 0,5% THD (total harmonic distortion). As a result, the M 930 Ts has a clean, distortion free sound over an extremely wide dynamic range. RFI susceptibility is very low. 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 capsule is mounted elastically in the compact microphone housing of the M 930 Ts with a diameter of 45 mm and a length of 130 mm for attenuating solid-borne sound and impulses. If a higher attenuation of such influences is required it can be achieved by elastic holders and suspensions which are available as accessories. The weight of the M 930 Ts is 273 g without any holder and suspension. That weight allows the use of the microphone with standard microphone arms, stand mountings and other holders as well as on a microphone tang without any problems.

Features:

  • Big output transformer with optimized circuit
  • Low frequency transmission with negligible distortion
  • Lower low frequency response
  • Extreme dynamic range
  • Noise floor 7 dB(A)
  • Highly balanced output
  • High solid-borne sound attenuation

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.
