The Lulu Tube Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone reacts to a sound in a forgiving and almost human manner. The replication is immaculate and the warmth is unmistakable. The Lulu Tube sets a new standard in a market that is saturated with rebranded OEM Microphones. If you are a Lulu Fet owner, you will absolutely love the Lulu Tube, with its NOS 1960’s 5784wb tube. It will be a great addition to your mic cabinet and has not been designed to replace your Lulu Fet mics, but rather to complement them. Now you have a mic with the same frequency response as your Lulu Fet mics, but with the added beauty and girth of a tube microphone.
The Lulu Tube features our very own designed BeesNeez E-Core single-spool transformer. The E-Core transformer in this microphone offers us the advantage of a low-leakage transformer and a small physical size. We have also found during our testing phase that E-Core transformers such as this one offer a lower susceptibility to core magnetization. When a core becomes magnetized, the lamination permeability is reduced. Many phantom-powered microphones that do not have carefully chosen transformers over the years become magnetized and the functionality of the transformer is drastically reduced.
The capsule in the Lulu is our version of the Neumann KK84, exhibiting the same flat frequency response as the original.
The tube is a JAN 5784WB Raytheon.
The Lulu Tube Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone reacts to a sound in a forgiving and almost human manner. The replication is immaculate and the warmth is unmistakable. It is based on the original KM54 that is still found used all over the world today because of its very flat and forgiving nature.
The Lulu Tube body tube is made from brass. After machining the body, it gets sent to a local powder coater for completion.
