Bock Audio 251 Large-Diaphragm Multi-Pattern Tube Condenser Microphone

The 251 is THE vocal sound people ask for, but the original (vintage) versions are 50+ years old and sound very different from one another. Repairing, rebuilding and “nursing” original 251’s has been David Bock’s work spanning over 30 years.

    • Bock Audio 251 PRODUCT FEATURES:

      The risk for a modern studio or end user to depend on a vintage mic on a daily basis is increasingly problematic. The 251 is David Bock’s answer to the vintage mic dilemma of getting “that sound” without the headaches. It is a premier lead microphone for premier voices. It is built to last and provide the studio and user with many years of daily,
      high end performance.
