Manley Reference Mono Gold Condenser Microphone

CK12-style American-made capsule, open grille, adjustable pickup pattern - hears deep into a room, capturing nuances and subtleties
MFR# REFGOLD

Product Description

The Manley Gold Reference Multi-Pattern microphones are a statement, quite simply, of the finest microphones that money can buy in the pursuit of truly accurate musical recordings. The Gold Reference Series employ Manley's own design of large capsules (1.25" overall, 1" diaphragm diameter) which are executed to precise tolerances made possible by modern micro-milling machinery in California. The capsule rings and back-plates are milled from solid brass. The gold diaphragm film comes from Germany and is tensioned using proprietary techniques by David Josephson ensuring capsule-to-capsule constancy, combined with the speed, "air" and superb ultra-high frequency response you have only dreamt about.

I've never known this not suit a vocalist! My studio's reference gold is always the first mic out on a vocal session because I know I can trust it's larger than life detail, incredibly flattering fat and bright tone and pure signal path. This mic is hard to beat! The amount of producers who come through my studio who say 'oh wow you've got the GOLD ONE' is amazing. The reference Cardioid version is also wonderful but the added flexibility and slight circuit change of this I really love.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

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.

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.
