The Studio Projects T3 vacuum tube mic
is based on classic 1950’s era designs, combined
with present day technological refinements. It is a versatile
microphone with abundant applications in the studio from
pianos and strings to guitar cabinets and saxophones.
Also a serious vocal mic, the T3 will please even the
most discerning ears.
The T3 is a variable pattern vacuum tube (valve) condenser
microphone. It features our 1.35” (34.5mm.) precision
dual membrane capsule coupled through a minimalist tube
circuit designed around the 12AY7 (6072) triode and a
balanced transformer output. Pattern control is variable
between omni directional, wide cardioid, cardioid, supercardioid,
hypercardioid and figure of eight via a nine-position
switch located on the front of the remote power supply
(SPT3). This allows the T3 to be used in all manner of
recording situations whether as a room mic, a single
point mic for bluegrass or as a spot mic when attenuation
from the side and rear is needed. The circuit design
of the T3 uses as few components as necessary to prevent
added noise and coloration. A hand selected 6072 "dual
triode" vacuum tube is used for its low noise, sonic
characteristic and reliability. The T3 provides warm
transparent sound associated with large capsule tube
microphones and it is the absolute stand-alone value
in its price class.
As a result of uncompromising dedication and advanced
production capabilities, Studio Projects will continue
to broaden the range of quality pro audio microphones & electronics
for today's recording environment.
