We are proud owners of two vintage Neumann u67 tube microphones previously owned by Richard Branson in the 1970s at the Manor Studios. These very mics were famously used on Mike Oldfield’s seminal piece ‘Tubular Bells’, and now you can use them too. In addition, the vintage AKG c24 gets a lot of use at Kore. As a stereo version of the inimitable c12, it’s probably the best room mic you will ever hear!
Our 1940s Melodium is a broadcast ribbon microphone manufactured in France and used for national radio during World War II. The Melodium boasts a huge proximity bass boost, making it the kind of ribbon microphone that sits very comfortably in front of a drum kit or bass cab.
