Nashville, TN (September 24, 2018)—Getting ready for its appearance at October’s AES Convention in New York City, Luke Audio has introduced its new Gold Standard AL-Y56-AU large diaphragm, tube condenser, “bottle” microphone, which comes with three interchangeable capsules that are also available individually.
The Gold Standard AL-Y56-AU is intended to be a lower-priced counterpart to the company’s Platinum Series. The interchangeable capsules—A1AU, A2AU and A3AU—are each a classic-type reproduction with 3 micron mylar diaphragms; likewise, each is gold sputtered and hand tuned.
The AL-A1AUis a reproduction of the ck12-type capsule with a 3 micron mylar diaphragm, and is said to be smooth and natural, bright, airy, open.
Meanwhile, the AL-A2AU aims to reproduce a k67-type capsule with a 3 micron mylar diaphragm and is punchy and mid-focused, according to Luke Audio.
Lastly, the AL-A3AU looks to reproduce a k47-type capsule with a 3 micron mylar diaphragm and is intended to be full bodied, rounded and warm.
The full LA-Y56-AU Package includes the Y56 Bottle microphone, all three interchangeable capsules, power supply, a 7-pin XLR cable, wooden mic box, wooden capsule box, aluminum flight case, shock mount, windscreen and power cable.
The full package is available at $699, while the cCapsules are individually available at $199 each.
