Wunder Audio CM50 FET S Condenser Microphone

Large diaphragm, solid state condensor mic with power supply and accessories
MFR# CM50 FET S

Product Description

The Wunder Audio CM50 FET Suprema microphone is the solid-state version of the CM50 Suprema. It comes with the very same spherical capsule as employed in the successful CM50 Tube Mic.

The Wunder Audio CM50 FET Suprema tube microphone is true to vintage using an original Neumann style M50 spherical capsule. The Wunder Audio CM50 FET S has an incredible lineage; its predecessor, the CM50 FET, has been used worldwide in Decca trees for recording the soundtracks for many of the major motion pictures produced today. The CM50 FET version is widely used by scoring engineer Shawn Murphy and Tom Steel among others at most of the sound stages in Los Angeles including; the Newman Scoring Stage 20th Century Fox, Sony Scoring Stage, Culver City and other top scoring stages worldwide including Abbey road! Main left-right usage of the CM50 FET include; Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, the Hobbit film series, Harry Potter and Marvel films. The new CM50 FET Suprema is one step up from this already perfect mic.

The CM50 FET S is the best available microphone for orchestral recordings because it has a response that rises slightly and it becomes increasingly more directional at higher frequencies when exposed to direct sound, but it remains flat in a diffused sound field.

In addition to being the perfect microphone for soundtrack recordings, the CM50 FET Suprema is definitely an important mic when recording drums and capturing the room sound, giving the instrument volume and depth. Once you try this out on drums, you will never want to record without it, as the drums sound flat without the CM50 FET Suprema. "Simply one of the most wonderful sounding room mics in the world. It is a must for huge drum sounds!”

Grille

The CM50 FET S has a slanted grille to limit the effect of grille resonance on the response. Because the grille is slanted and presents a continuously varying profile to the capsule, there are fewer standing waves generated. This gives the most natural sound obtainable my any microphone. Very pure and pleasantly warm. The size of the grille forms a larger-volume enclosure giving the capsule more breathing room and contributing to its openness. In every way the Wunder Audio CM50 FET Suprema grille is true to vintage and identical to the original M50. It has been used as historical replacement parts on the vintage M50s.

FET Circuitry

Wunder Audio CM50 FET Suprema incorporates an audiophile grade MOSFET circuit. Sonically, the MOSFETs enhance low-level detail retrieval and provide a startling improvement in low noise performance, adding a sense of purity on vocals and strings thought to be impossible in transistor amplification. There is also a sense of linearity that allows the microphone to maintain consistency of clarity and tonal balance from low to high levels, so there is no more confusion and congestion when the volume is pushed. The staging, depth retrieval and the overall presentation takes on just the right balance of airiness and bloom.

Capsule

The CM50 Suprema uses the same M9 capsule as the historic M50. Neumann went through several materials for their diaphragm, starting with PVC which quickly became too brittle, then went to aluminum which was difficult to tension correctly. For a brief period nickel was used and finally the decision was to use Mylar, as in the KM 83. Wunder have successfully recreated the small pressure transducer, similar to the capsule for the KM series microphones, embedded in the surface of a 40 mm diameter Lucite sphere. By mounting the miniature capsule in the large Lucite sphere all standing waves larger than 40 mm are eliminated thus canceling out proximity effect. No other microphone set to Omni can achieve the naturalness of the CM50 S sound. The inspiration is classic, the execution is cutting-edge.

Box and Yoke Mount

Your Wunder Audio CM50FET S is nestled in velvet and softly secured in place in a foam-lined oak-wooden box that is clasped and hinged. This beautiful oak box is also sold separately. Your CM50 S yoke mount is an improved one-piece design for durability.

Upgrade Your Mic

All previous versions of the Wunder Audio microphones can be upgraded to the Surprema.

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.
