Gefell UMT 70S FET Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone

Large diaphragm, transformerless multi-pattern studio microphone
MFR# 211130

Product Description

The Gefell UMT70S is a multi-pattern FET microphone that features the legendary M7 dual-membrane, gold evaporated capsule with a new, state-of-the-art low-noise capsule amplifier for exceptional transient response, wide bandwidth and a natural uncolored sound.  The ultra-slim design benefits the UMT70S with less acoustic field disruption around the microphone and greater placement ease when lose mic-ing instruments.  The UMT70S is ideal for recording, broadcast, voice-over and live sound reinforcement.

Three-pattern side-address condenser with dual large-diaphragm & gold evaporated membranes.  Transformerless output stage for exceptional dynamics.  Each pattern yields a slightly different frequency response curve: the omni adds extra air in the 10kHz region while the cardioid and figure-8 have a 7kHz presence lift for voice. Comes with deluxe wood case.

Features:

  • Ultra low-noise circuit
  • Excellent dynamics and response

Ever since a documentary filmmaker I worked with brought one of these back from Germany ages ago, to record narration with in his company's small production studio, I have been convinced it is the absolute best microphone ever made, especially for Voice Over and Narration work. Not surprising that the only one that comes close is a vintage classic Neumann U47 - because it has the exact same capsule element, made exactly the same way, in the original factory where Georg Neumann developed and produced his unparalleled line of spectacular fidelity condenser microphones, still considered the essential go-to microphones in every top-flight recording facility and beloved by recording engineers, musicians and vocal artists across the planet. The UMT 70S in particular captures spoken word performance with incredible intimacy, detail, and such bold "presence" in the midrange band as to be the front & center spotlit starring focal point of even the densest music and efx soundscape mix, yet without sibilance or harsh metallic artifacts common to undeservedly popular "shotgun" condensers and super-bright orchestral/choral multipattern general usage music studio/concert hall mics requiring tons of EQ and compression to "sit right" in a crowded soundtrack mix. No wonder the original U47 was Sir George Martin's all-time favorite for recording Beatles vocals at Abbey Road Studios, and while not exactly the same electronics/amp circuitry, you can still hear that magical stunning presence with modern noise-free precisely clean fidelity in the compact and rugged UMT 70S. I've owned and insisted on using my own Gefell for voice over and narration work for the past 25 years or so, with several prominent production studios following my lead to stock their own mic lockers with this and other Microtech/Gefell models (the M930 is a favorite at some of the best studios now, like the famed Skywalker Sound, to name-drop an unimpeachable credit); but the UMT 70 remains my first and most reliable pick for any "center stage" BIG Voice Over/Narration sound gig. Now restricted to remotely performing exclusively from my own facility at home for the next couple of years (most likely), I noticed it was time to service and refresh the one I've depended on for the past quarter century, and certainly can't be without one at the ready 24-7, so now I have a brand spanking new one from the good folks at Vintage King. Now I won't go anywhere else for premium grade audio gear. Finally discovered for myself that VK is the most knowledgeable, finest service, reasonably priced, and just plain best Pro Audio dealers in the business. Thanks!

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.

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.

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.
