    Michael Joly Engineering "nU-2500"


    Listen for yourself, here's the proof -
    Hear the "nU-2500" in action against the legendary U 67.

    There are five paired sound files below. The left-hand file is the U 67, the right-hand file is its nU-2500 pairing. 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 nU-2500 - a u 67 alternative - 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: The nU-2500, while a tube / transformer-coupled mic IS NOT a U 67 clone. Rather, I have chosen classic U 67 as a reference standard to showcase the similar qualities of the nU-2500.

    MJE nU-2500 Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Is this a complete, mod'd mic?
    A: NO - This is a modification-service to a user-supplied mic. The picture shows a typical nU-2500 modified Oktava MKL-2500.
