The SoundeluxELUX 251 recreates the sonic beauty of the classic 251, one of the most sought after vintage mics ever built. Its strong, powerful bottom and airy, unabrasive top puts this mic leagues ahead of others; its performance simply cannot be found in cheaper microphones. This characteristic gives the sense that its response extends well beyond the normal range of a studio microphone.

The ELUX 251 has the ability to transform the most intimate details of a vocal, maintaining its clarity even under stressful vocal situations, and doesn't fold or get harsh as the singer's intensity increases. It will give you absolute confidence that your vocal tracks will stand the test of generational degradation: mixing, processing, mastering, broadcasting and webcasting! All of these technical details and attention to the old school philosophy and craftsmanship are there for one reason: to provide you with the highest quality recordings possible, with no compromise. The ELUX 251 is the ultimate high resolution tube mic!
Applications Though it's primary use will undoubtedly be on male or female vocals, the ELUX 251 will also find itself an extraordinary performer on other instruments as well. Drum kits will have astounding impact and transient response, with no overt artificial high end or midrange boxiness. Pianos will also benefit from the open top of this mic. It will also excel on acoustic guitars, percussion, and as a main ensemble mic.

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.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.
You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
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.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
Better than expected! Truly impeccable service. Your team was professional, knowledgeable, provided speedy delivery above and beyond standard. Vintage King Audio is definitely my go to for all of my audio and information needs.
