The Neumann U67 was the first microphone equipped with the famous K 67 capsule, which has since become associated with ?the Neumann sound? and continues to be used in its successor, the U 87 A. No less important is the U 67?s masterful tube circuit featuring a clever pre-emphasis/de-emphasis scheme to minimize tube hiss. The Neumann U67 was also the first microphone to address modern recording techniques such as close miking. Its switchable low cut filter compensates for the proximity effect occurring at short recording distances. Using its preattenuation, the Neumann U67 can handle high sound pressure levels of up to 124 dB without distortion (and much more if you don?t mind a bit of ?tube grit?).

Sonically, the current reissue is identical to the Neumann U67 made from 1960?1971. It uses the same capsule and electronic design. Key parts, such as the BV 12 output transformer, are meticulously reproduced according to original documentation. EF86 tubes are carefully selected for optimal characteristics and lowest noise in a dedicated measurement facility. The power supply was redesigned to meet today?s strict safety requirements and to accommodate the slightly higher filament current of newer premium grade tubes. The new power supply NU 67 V is fully compatible with older U 67 microphones.
