Taking inspiration from the fabled Sony C-37A, Manley Labs introduces  the Manley Reference Silver Microphone. Featuring an American built  capsule by David Josephson and a Manley designed circuit, this  microphone has warm and rich tone. The Manley Reference Silver  Microphone offers a mechanical selector on the rear of the head basket  that is switchable between cardioid and omni pick-up patterns. Boasting a  mic grade 5670 vacuum tube, Manley IRON® transformers, and a low-noise  switch mode power supply, the Manley Reference Silver Microphone is a  studio workhorse. This microphone is at home in-front of instruments  that range from female vocalists, to saxophones, from drum overheads to  banjos. Use the Manley Reference Silver Microphone where you might be  thinking about a ribbon, and use it with confidence!

After 27 years since the debut of the first Manley Reference Gold and  Reference Cardioid tube microphones which have since become modern  classics, we introduce to you the Manley Reference Silver Microphone.  The audio inspiration for this handcrafted beauty begins with the 1950s  classic Sony C-37a microphone, and specifically with California capsule  maker David Josephson's fantastic recreation of the C-37’s C-3 capsule  which features in adjustable acoustic chamber on the rear of the capsule  for the user to switch between Cardioid in Omni pickup patterns. This  distinctive capsule is the heart of the rich and creamy tone that the  Manley Reference Silver Mic delivers today, and reliably with a five  year factory warranty. The old SONY mics are super-rare at this point,  if you can find a decent working example of one!

Inside the mic, we are using a different circuit from our other two  microphones. The fragile high impedance signal from the capsule first  hits a FET sitting underneath the 5670 vacuum tube’s cathode which then  amplifies the signal into a more robust voltage that our hand-wound  Manley IRON® microphone output transformer sends out to your microphone  preamplifier. Output level from this mic is a wee bit lower compared to  our other two microphones, but after careful consideration coming  through the Beta-testing phase of development, we decided to leave it  there as this mic will find a forever-home in front of your loudest  instruments such as snare drum, guitars, and toms. It's a real natural  there!

Sonic character of the Reference Silver is on the rich and warm side.  You'll find this microphone stunning with female vocals and saxophones,  with a round character that is never sibilant or boxy. A brass section  will sound rich and cohesive. This microphone with its bountiful and  warm middle tonality also is a natural for drum overheads where you  might have too much brightness off the cymbals from other microphones.  It is a very classic sounding microphone, which is to be expected since  its innovative capsule design harkens back to the 1950s. Use the Manley  Reference Silver Microphone where you might be thinking about a ribbon,  and use it with confidence!
