    Michael Joly Engineering MK-319 Classic PE modification for your mic


    Listen for yourself, here's the proof -
    Hear the MJE MK-319 Classic PE mod in action against the legendary Neumann U 67.

    There are five paired sound files below. The left-hand file is the U 67, the right-hand file is the MJE MK-319 Classic PE. In all cases, the recordings were made with both mics live, mics positioned vertically in headbasket-to-headbasket orientation, Daking 500 series preamps for both channels. Vocal distance apx 10", guitar distance apx 18". This is Michael Joly writing. Listen and read more to learn if the Classic PE mod for your MK-319 is right for you. Then place an order or click "contact me" to send your questions.

    Btw - The U 67 (about $8000 used) topology is based around the Neumann K67 capsule followed by HF de-emphasis in a tube / transformer-coupled circuit. NOTE: As a FET / tranformer-coupled mic, the MJE MK-319 Classic PE is not a U 67 clone. Rather, I have chosen the U 67 as a reference standard to showcase the qualities of the Standard PE mods for your MK-319.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Is this a complete, mod'd mic I'm buying?
    A: NO. THIS IS A MODIFICATION SERVICE TO A MIC YOU SUPPLY. The picture shows a typical MJE MK-319 Classic PE.


    "Michael Joly has quickly gained a reputation for ironing the wrinkles out of (an) inexpensive microphone, at a "Bang-for-the-buck" price most of us can easily afford...I was blown away by the exponential difference in quality"

    Andrew R. DeLapp, Tape Op Magazine, May / June 2007


    Premium Electronics

    The Michael Joly Engineering Premium Electronics upgrade features a great-sounding, low noise Field Effect Transistor (FET) impedance converter or "front end". The FET I've selected for this application has fast transient response and impressively low self-noise - the already low self-noise centered at 150Hz actually declines another 15dB in the critical 2kHz-4kHz band where we are most sensitive to noise. Recordings made with your MJE MK-319 Classic PE mic will have great clarity, definition and reach without the noise-based graininess that plagues many condenser FET microphones.

    And this suite of upgrades includes all the signature Michael Joly Engineering innovations: single layer headbasket conversion, capsule isolation-diffusion mounting for "bonk reduction" and reduced vertical standing wave interference, capsule resonator modification for clearer high end, field-proven MJE Premium Electronics mods and elimination of low cut and roll-off circuits to eliminate stray capacitance losses that rob HF detail and transient response.

    Easy to order a risk-free mod for your mic. Ps - it loves to go to U 67 shoot out parties.
