New KEL microphone: HM-7U

Discussion in 'Microphones' started by patrick_like_static, Aug 31, 2008.

  1. KEL's in the news again with a website makeover and a new microphone model, the HM-7U ($299). It's slated to ship in late September (though, historically, it may end up being later). No sound samples are available at this time.

    "We start with a quality capsule featuring a K47-style backplate to get the basic sound in place. Instead of crappy tubes and junky transfomers we use a proven class-A, dual-FET, transformerless circuit with premium WIMA film capacitors to squeeze out all the rich detail the capsule has to offer."

    What do you guys think? Are any of these specs desirable?

    I am buying it just because of the shiny blue light!

    If it is anything like there other products it should be a good piece of gear. I own 2 hm-1's, a hm-2d, and a hm-4 and find all of them really useful and great bang for the buck !!

  4. I could do without the blue LED. But I'm with you, David. I never got to hear the HM-4s but I'm a fan of KEL's other products, and of their company in general.

    Was only joking about the blue light. I have an HM-1 amd it's my favorite amp mic; I should have got two. I am looking forward to the HM-7U.

    Kelly is a stud!! can i buy stock in the company?

    Well now THAT was interesting.

    Must have new Kel mic.......A perfect compliment to my 25 year old Neumann U87.
