ADK Microphones Cremona 251-T Multi-Pattern FET Condenser Microphone

The ADK Cremona 251-T is an FET studio condenser multi-pattern microphone. The ADK 251-T is a solid-state FET version of the infamous Ela M 251. It handles much higher SPL and has lower self noise in comparison to the original. Sonically, the 251-T has an airy, smooth frequency response with solid mids. Key features include selectable polar patterns - cardioid, figure-8 and omni. The mic also has 2-way attenuation switch and 2-way high pass filter switch. Each ADK Cremona 251-T ships with an aluminium flight case, shock-mount, pop-screen and XLR cable too!

    • ADK Cremona 251-T PRODUCT FEATURES:

      The ADK Custom Shop Cremona 251-T Microphone is based on a unique FET circuit that saturates gradually (unlike most condenser microphones which tend to clip abruptly). Key to the Tonality -a Belgian-American-Australian-Designed Capsule, British Oxford Transformers, Hi-End Phillips Norelco Uber-FET. Manufactured with Hi-Fi Methods and Materials, including a $6 Resistor! It took three microphone experts including a PhD in Physics, a Design Genius in Belgium and a 40 year-old Mic Locker to create it! Two-Way Attenuation Pads & Two Way HP Filter to enable end-user to tailor the dynamic behavior of the microphone and create new textures, with rarely the need for outboard processors or even EQ.

      All Class-A F.E.T. design manufactured in 3 Zigma Aerospace Manufacturing facility with British Oxford Transformer, and premium quality Low-Noise 3 Zigma capsules with Vintage Voicing Curves. The audiophile circuitry differs from lesser-designs in that it is designed for Soft-Saturation at extremely high SPL as instead of going into the “crunch” and unpleasant distortion (not the good kind of distortion!) of hard-clipping.
