Neumann presents a reissue of the iconic M 49 aptly named M 49 V

Some exciting news for musicians and audio engineers, Neumann Berlin has recently announced a reissue of the renowned M 49 microphone!

Since its origin in 1951, the M 49 has been highly praised as an excellent studio microphone. It cemented its position as a legend in recording technology and has become a desirable item among collectors and purists alike!

Critically acclaimed musicians used the original M 49 in studios to record their songs, including Michael Jackson, John Lennon, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan and Barbra Streisand. It continues to be used today by modern artists… who can afford it!

The original Neumann M 49 was only produced between the years 1949 and 1957. Its remote-controlled seamless polar pattern helped reshape studio technology, as it was able to record silky-smooth sounds while recording engineers could try out new ideas in the studio.

The price of this reissue is just under $17,000 (I know, I know) because if you want to buy a refurbished original M 49 microphone today, you’ll have to shell out €18,000 or AU$26,535.42! Oh!

In announcing the reissue microphone, Neumann claims that the M 49 V is built to the original specifications and design using documents from the Neumann archive. There will be a maximum of 25 handcrafted microphones each month in Germany by three craftsmen. Now that sounds like quality control.

Improvements have been made to the pattern control unit, which now switches to mains voltage and will be suitable for use with the old M 49 microphones. How convenient! The classic K 49 large-diaphragm capsule hasn’t changed since the 1950s, but this version will have a hand-selected subminiature tube with even lower noise.

Like the previous model M 49b (with a BV11 transformer and some circuit value changes), the M 49 V can be configured to improve the signal-to-noise ratio by approximately 3 dB. This is a useful option if the microphone is used exclusively for vocals and speech.

Availability is not abundant, so wait for those with the funds. Ralf Oehl (CEO of Neumann) states:

“Less than 48 hours before the official launch on sale, we already have more than 200 orders.”

The M 49 V comes complete with a pattern remote control unit, mic cable and the iconic “yoke” swivel mount, all in a beautifully crafted case.

The RRP is AU$16,249 and NZ$17,849 and will be available in August 2022.
