The new HM-7U features an enlarged grill basket and added body damping for a tighter, richer sound. Thanks to user feedback, the low-cut and pad switches moved to the back of the mic, along with a nicer phantom power light so engineers can access the switches and see the light without getting in the way of the artist.

Now you can get a smooth solid K-47 style mic without having to take out a second mortgage!

The HM-7U features a single pattern reproduction of the second generation capsule found in the famous U-47. This capsule is known for its smooth rich response compared with the brighter capsules found in many other mics.

The HM-7U utilizes a proven class-A, dual-FET, transformerless circuit with premium WIMA film capacitors to squeeze out all the detail the capsule has to offer.

We also add extra features including a low cut filter to control sub-harmonic rumble, a -6dB pad to help handle extra loud sources, plus a handy phantom power LED indicator so you know when the mic is active on stage or when recording.

The HM-7U has a thick glossy sound with good transient detail well suited to lead and back-up vocals, kick drums and toms, upright bass, woodwinds, piano, mandolin and more.

The HM-7U also features a lightweight, yet well-damped, body so it can be used safely on stage with a standard microphone stand, even though it is a full-size mic. Comes with a shock mount, swivel mount and flight case.

1x - Kel Audio Microphones

You’ll find high-grade film capacitors all over the PC board, as well as an ultra smooth styroflex cap between the capsule and FET for incredible detail and transparency. Users are successfully recording everything from drum overheads and toms to acoustic and electric guitars, horns, mandolins, grand piano, banjos, vocals and more.


2D - Kel Audio Microphones

Basically put it up whenever you want a smooth old-school vibe instead of the hash and grit of low priced tube mics, or the mud of some of the inexpensive off-shore ribbon mics flooding the market, recently. Also, because the HM-2d is a transformerless condenser mic, it’s far less susceptible to the loading effects that can drastically change the sound of dynamic mics from one pre-amp to the next.


3C - Kel Audio Microphones

The HM-3C starts with a 20 mm capsule based on the same design used in our popular HM-1, but the polar pattern is tighter and the frequendy response of the mic is flatter. The HM-3C is recommended for all acoustic instruments and ensemble recording or anywhere natural sound capture is required. The HM-3C was designed with one thing in mind — smooth natural reproduction of whatever you put in front of it.


Song Sparrow - Kel Audio Microphones

We’ve avoided the use of low-grade tube circuits, ceramic capacitors and underspec transformers in order to keep the mic affordable, choosing instead to bring you a simple, high quality design built with components that will serve you for years and years. The mic features a 1-inch side terminated condenser capsule married to a dual FET transformerless circuit and a high-grade signal path (including premium WIMA film capacitors).

Tips - Kel Audio Microphones

You might read suggestions in forums that a good way to position microphones is to plug one ear and move the open ear around a sound source until is sounds good. In the end you have to listen to the overall sound source live and then double check through mics, because the mics — not your ears — will capture the sound.
