The M 149 Tube is a switchable double diaphragm microphone. The K 49 capsule, known from the legendary U 47 and M 49 microphones, is followed by a tube as impedance converter. However, this tube does not operate on a transformer, as was necessary in the past, but is supplemented by a transformerless output circuit. This means that the M 149 Tube can be used with long microphone cables without distorting the sound. Two slide switches are located below the large, acoustically particularly open microphone basket. The front switch selects one of nine directional patterns. The rear slide switch operates a seven-stage high-pass filter and allows very sensitive adjustment of the lower cut-off frequency.Range of application:With nine different polar patterns, the M 149 Tube can be adapted to very different acoustic recording situations.Like its ancestors, it is particularly suitable for speech and vocals. This is due not only to its capsule, but also to the particularly low equivalent noise level of its modern circuitry.Acoustic characteristics:The M 149 Tube is reviewed from the side. Its front is marked by the company label and the directional switch.Below the capsule, a dome ensures dispersion of the sound from the upper half-space, so that there is no disturbing interference with the direct sound components.To protect against structure-borne sound transmission, the capsule is elastically mounted. The capsule is surrounded by the large microphone basket of the old M 49, which is now, however, acoustically more open and thus behaves in a more sound-neutral manner.Polar patterns:There are nine polar patterns to choose from: Omni, wide cardioid, cardioid, hypercardioid and figure-of-eight, each with an intermediate position.
