microphone Neumann UM 57

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

The Neumann/Gefell UM 57 was a large-diaphragm tube condenser microphone manufactured by the Neumann company of Gefell, Germany, currently known as Microtech-Gefell. The mic used the Gefell company`s famous M7 capsule. This was a dual-diaphragm, center-terminated capsule with a PVC (plastic) diaphragm. It supported three polar patterns via a switc

The UM57`s legacy was celebrated during Microtech Gefell`s 75th anniversary in 2003, with the introduction of the limited-edition UM 75, which was presented as a recreation of the UM57. However, numerous differences existed between these two microphones: Due to age, and a shortage of high-quality audio components in East Germany when these microphones were made, many UM57 microphones underperform their potential. Oliver Archut of AMI/Tab-Funkenwerk suggests numerous modifications to move the [microphones] closer to the full potential of [the] M7  capsule:
