Manley Debuts Limited Edition Mic for 30th Anniversary

Only 100 of the Reference Cardioid XXX Anniversary Limited Edition will be produced.

Chino, CA (October 7, 2019)—For the company’s 30th Anniversary, Manley Laboratories is releasing a limited run of its Reference Cardioid tube microphone in a custom pearlescent white finish with red accents, dubbed the “Reference Cardioid XXX Anniversary Limited Edition.”

Manley Labs Debuts Limited Edition Dual Mono Mic Preamp

First released in 1990, the tube vocal mic has, according to the company, since been heard “everywhere, from Don LaFontaine’s famous movie trailers to classic singers like Etta James to chart-topping hits from artists like Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Panic! at the Disco and Avril Lavigne.”

This XXX Anniversary Edition Reference Cardioid microphone production will feature the Manley Power Switch-Mode Power Supply, currently used in the Manley Reference Silver Microphone and said to be “empirically quieter” than the microphone’s original linear PSU. The new power supply is also universal, allowing it to work anywhere in the world without a voltage changeover switch or power transformer rewiring.
