This one fits many types of mics, and I am very happy about its look and feel,
much recommended to any one who own mics they like to take extra care of.
Thanks to the option to order the kit without a capsule I was able to customize it with an M7 capsule. Compared to the other kits this one is a little bit brighter than the tube-U47 (M7) and sounds a little bit more natural and balanced with my voice. The quality of the components is as excellent as in the other kits. Just follow the steps in the guide carefully and you will get a gem! Professional soldering equipment is mandatory, gloves very recommended especially for the high impedance section.
The box is elegant, spacious, my U47 is well protected when I'm not using it, and there's a discount on it when you buy a microphone body or kit on the site! Very great 👍🏻
The logo is of very good quality, the paintwork is well finished and gives the microphone a professional look, I love it!
Excellent microphone, exceeded my expectations. I like the sound better than today's AKG original! The kit is not intended for beginners, but it is not too complicated either. The instructions are very good. The sound is very natural, uniform and resolute without any harshness. The capsules are very well matched. Perfect microphone for recording acoustic instruments or voice! The polar characteristics are very uniform and the sound is always consistent. I'm recording a concert Steinway D with them next week.
I have now built 3 of them and all sounded richer and clearer in comparison shots than an original Neumann U87Ai. My recommendation: Use the attached modified capacitor for more low end and search for the mod for the low cut filter in Discord!
J’ai eu plein de micros avant, AKG C414, Shure SM7b, Neumann TLM49 et plein de classiques en studio mais j’ai pris une claque en entendant le C12 la première fois et encore aujourd’hui, c’est toujours une sensation incroyable. Ce micro est riche, chaleureux, ferme, il a un rendu toujours précis et brillant mais jamais aggressif ou désagréable.
La qualité inégalée auparavant pour moi de ce micro m’a poussé à prendre un U47 quelques semaines plus tard et je suis devenu complètement fan ! 😍❤️
Un micro tellement doux qu’il donne vraiment l’impression qu’on chante dans un nuage de soie ! J’ai adoré le construire et j’aimerais trop en avoir un autre (au moins) pour faire la paire ❤️
I bought it for a personal DIY project, the capsule is delivered quickly in a protective case, it's very well built, the sound is really great, the high and bass are very well reproduced.
Pas besoin de plus dépenser, la qualité neutrik est là, d ailleurs les pro les utilisent couramment .
résiste au soudage , contacte doré , robuste ...
porté plutôt vos efforts sur l acoustique de vôtre local . c est là que l on gagne et pas sur les détails insignifiants que peut apporter une fiche quelque soit sont prix .
Good quality and price. For this money, it can not be better!
I bought this one to build a cable for connecting my audio interface with my headphone amplifier.
It did not take much time because the Neutrik NP3 X is well manufactured and easy to solder.
It workes just fine and I never had a problem with it. I would buy it again for another cable.
I use Neutrik connectors almost exclusively because they are a great design - super strong, well shaped tips that make a good connection to the socket, grippy but not bulky and a superb cable strain relief. They are also easy to work with, soldering them is a joy. You simply cannot go wrong with Neutrik connectors.
The design is vastly superior to cheaper connectors.
The way the body is connected to the tip, with the strain relief pushing both parts together, there is simply no way, this connector will open by itself. Also the strain relief is very long, with a gradient crossover between cable and connector, which makes it very good in the long run.
As for NP2 X: Neutrik plugs are more expensive than most of the contenders, and they will set you back quite a bit if you're buying bulk. However, I've had enough no-name connectors fail on me through the years to appreciate the build quality of Neutriks, and I will try to get ahold of Neutriks whenever I'm going to solder my own cables.
TRSs are not as easy to solder as XLRs, but absolutely manageable.
Overall, a high quality product at a right price.
I have and will continue to buy Neutrik sockets and connectors as they are of a consistently high standard.
Every component part of the jack is robust and up to the rigours of studio and performance life.
The soldering to the ground and ring terminals is the only tricky part of this particular connector (as opposed to xlr terminals) but that is more down to my own soldering capability, but it is manageable and the surrounding plastic insulation is very resilient to the occasional slip of the soldering iron!
Great, love this one.
I used this to make a multi cable for my pedalboard, for cable method and amp switching al trough one multi-cable great, very good quality too.
super verarbeitet und leicht zu löten.
Fiche de bonne facture! Parfait
Skvelý konektor, ktorý sa ľahko letuje a uťahuje a evidentne drží na kábly dostatočne pevno.
If I have to assemble cables myself, I only use Neutrik for plugs and sockets!
Best quality! Very good signal transmission! Extremely good stability! Very good strain relief! Always easy soldering and what counts: an attractive look!
The only drawback would be the price. Neutrik is happy to be paid for its good name. The XLR products in particular do not have to be that expensive.
I make custom tube microphones, this cable is best for connecting them to the power supply. There are no problems with it.
This cable handles really nicely and is much more flexible than you'd expect for the numbers of cores it has. Even the larger core sizes are still flexible.
We used this to make some new cables for JTS JS1-Tube mics (along with 7-pin XLRs) to make better quality cables than the ones supplied with the mics. This cable didn't disappoint
when in the studio someone tripped over to cable ripping it out of the mic, the mic was a SE x1T Valve mic ( fantastic mic for what you pay... if you can find one !!) what it did was not only rip from the connector but also stretch the cable so tore the strands inside so the original cable had no reinforcement to stop this, so here we are buying this cable to replace it, great cable to work with when soldering it all the plastic sleeve does not melt down the wire leaving just a mess and the cable is also good quality, well.. its done the job perfect is strong and i am really happy with it ( and got a bit longer :-)...)
This seems very good value cable. The cores are thinner than others but adequate. The cable is very pliable with a thick sheave so perfect for stage use. Using mine for TSR Jack keyboard and XLR mic leads.
