What We Think

“The middle sibling of Neumann's 'Big 3,' the U67 is a recognizable sound across most record collections: Beatles, Bowie, and beyond. However, forgetting the vintage studio budget needed for one, these mics today can be wildly inconsistent. This is where the P67 excels. I decided to put one through the paces as my main 'workhorse' across sources while tracking my current record. On vocals, paired with a 1073-style pre, the results were absolute forward magic. It seemed to couple the 'larger than life,' creamy sound of the 47, but with a bit more presence and attitude that handled nasality and sibilance incredibly gracefully. On acoustics, it really brought some attention and spark to the track inside of a dense and heavily layered mix. My current favorite has been blending it on amplifiers with a ribbon, finding the perfect balance of smoothed attack without giving up presence and detail. It has become a reliable tool I can't 'un-hear.'”

The Peluso P-67 was a work in progress for John Peluso for over 2 years. The production had a few hurdles, in particular perfectly mastering the sonic characteristic associated with the original vintage grill (which, believe it or not, has tremendous acoustic properties that defined the historic Neumann U67 that this microphone replicates).  We felt extreme excitement when we got the call from John Peluso: “I’ve got the basket figured out!”  Now, this might not seem like that much of an impressive road block, but you have to look at the full picture of how a microphone works.

The sound of a microphone is largely produced from the capsule itself (tube, transformer, etc), but there is of course more to it than that.  The pressure that hits the capsule, as well as the space around the actual capsule (inside the basket) has a HUGE impact on the performance and sound of the microphone.  Knowing this, the job for John was to build a basket that gave the capsule the same identical acoustic performance - not just the capsule, but even the air and pressure buildup and release associated with a tailored perfect grill pattern, by design, to match the original air and pressure patterns associated with the grill of a vintage U67.

This is why we love John and his products.  He refused to get the design ‘close enough’; he wanted it to be dead-perfect.  Everyone who has talked to us already knows how much we love the rest of his product line, but for some of us personally, this is a microphone that we had been salivating over.  Until this mic was produced, we didn’t feel that there was a really dead-on clone of the original Vintage Neumann U67.

For vocals, a great sounding U-67 can be the perfect choice, but we wanted this microphone for numerous other choices like miking guitar cabs, and other things like acoustic bass and brass.  Many of you will have noticed that we take pride in our guitar recordings, and a good U67 has been a hole in our mic locker that we are glad to have finally filled.  Yes, this means that guitar tracks are coming, but vocal tracks should be up not too far behind.

No one was building a U-67 clone until now, so if you are like us and can’t stomach spending $15k+ on a vintage microphone with unknown history and questionable maintenance concerns, we invite you to give us a call and talk to us about getting a Peluso P67 for your studio!

Manufacturer's Description from Peluso

The Peluso P-67 is styled after the vintage Neumann U-67. Produced from 1960 to 1971 the legendary U-67 is a key part of the classic sound of albums of the late 60s and early 70s. The shape of the dual mesh head grille and glass EF style pentode vacuum tube are part of what enables the P-67 to very accurately achieve the sonic qualities of a U-67. The P-67's capsule has dual 34 mm gold-sputtered diaphragms. The P-67 features two switches on the microphone body. A low frequency roll-off switch decreases the low-end gain and can counter the proximity effect of close range vocals. A -10dB pad switch for lower gain can be used with close range brass, guitar cabinets, drums or other high level sources. The P-67 is a highly functional and versatile microphone. Professional engineers know the "67", ask anyone.

The P-67 is paired with the Peluso MX-56 power supply. The dual sided capsule in the P-67 enables the power supply to feature 9 polar patterns in an array from omni-directional to cardioid to figure eight.

The P-67 features our heavy-duty 8-pin screw on cable connector. The large diameter pins in the screw on connector give a tight and secure cable connection designed to perform for a lifetime of use.

 

Acoustically matched pairs available upon special request.

Microphone kit comes as a complete system including: P-67 Microphone in a Wood Box, Power Supply, New-style 8-Pin Screw on Cable Assembly, and a Shock Mount all packed in a Flight Case.
