The Superlux CM-H8 series microphones are large 1" diaphragm side address condenser mics which look somewhat similar to the Shure KSM-32. The sound is that of a high quality large diaphragm condenser mic, and the frequency response is similar to many such mics. Sonically they are closer to the Neumann U87 than the more neutral sounding Shure KSM-32. If you take the mic apart you will be pleasantly surprised by the build quality. The inside is very clean and the components and circuit board are high quality. The importer provides a two year warranty. The price is far lower than any such mic I have ever seen. Phantom power is required for all but the tube CM-H8D or CM-H8G.

Superlux CM-H8D

The Superlux CM-H8D is a tube microphone that reminds me of the classic Neumann U67. Click here for the manufacturer's data sheet.

Superlux CM-H8G

The Superlux CM-H8G is a 9 pattern tube microphone similar in concept to the classic Neumann M-49c but implemented using modern manufacturing techniques. It uses a dual 1" diaphragm condenser capsule. Like the original M-49c and unlike Neumann's new M-149, it places the variable pattern control remotely from the microphone on the power supply, and uses a transformer coupled output stage for maximum rejection of interference. I find the ability to remotely control the pattern to be one of the outstanding benefits of this microphone when compared to other modern offerings where the pattern control is only on the microphone. Couple this with classic tube/transformer sound and you have an outstanding high end studio mic at an amazingly low price. Click here for the manufacturer's data sheet. Each mic comes with a shock mount plus a stand adapter, 25 foot cable, AC power supply with IEC power cord, foam windscreen, hard shell case, and internal serial number for $538.00 plus shipping. UPS Ground shipping in the 48 states is $35.00 for one mic or $55.00 for two. Email me for International Sales.

Superlux PRA-288A
Snare Drum Mic.

The Superlux DRK-B5C2mkII is their updated Professional drum mic kit. All but one of the mics in it come from their PRO series rather than the less expensive PRA series. It comes with a PRO-218A Kick Drum Mic, three PRO-228A Tom Drum Mics, a PRA-288A Snare Drum Mic, and two PRO-268B Condenser High Hat/Overhead Drum Mics. The PRO-218A has a shock mount stand adapter, and the frequency response curve printed on the side of the mic. The PRO-228A Tom mics have built-in stand adapters. The PRA-288A is an extremely tiny snare drum mic with a separate stand adapter, and the frequency response curve printed on the side of the mic. The PRO-268B Condenser High Hat/Overhead mics have separate shockmount stand adapters and foam windscreens. The updated kit uses the new PRO-268B microphones instead of the PRO-268A used for years in these kits. The PRO-268B is shorter than the PRO-268A and has a low cut switch and a 10 dB pad switch. These kits compete with some of the best drum mic kits on the market. Click here for the manufacturer's data sheet. Each DRK-B5C2mkII Drum Mic Kit comes in a hard shell case for $359.00 plus shipping which is a lot lower than some of the competitive kits. The PRO-268B Condenser High Hat/Overhead mic is $110.00 plus shipping. UPS Ground shipping in the 48 states is $30.00 for the full kit. UPS Ground shipping in the 48 states for individual drum mics is $19.00 for one mic and $6.00 extra for each additional mic in the same order.Email me for International Sales.
