Built in a sleek 44mm “BM800 style” body, I use my standard BFM transformer coupled circuit and transformer adapter board. The capsule is the standard k47 style that I use in everything else and I use a high quality XLR output connector.
The body is surprisingly small for an LDC making it very easy to sneak into tight places.
Standard configuration includes
- Fixed Cardioid Pattern
- Matte Red Color
- Internal Omni/Cardioid Pattern Switch (you must unscrew the body to access it)
- The imported (China) T8 style. This is low cost transformer which performs pretty well. It has a slightly thinner and brighter tone.
- CineMag (USA) 5722w. This is a very high quality transformer which is still moderately priced. It has a very full, even tone with great harmonic content and transformer crunch. Probably the best choice overall for most applications
- The Tab-Funkenwerk (USA) T12 style. This is a more expensive transformer. It has a massively fat and full low and low-mid response. Although it has great high frequency response, you may perceive the overall tone as slightly dark because of the extra full lows and low-mids.
