Neumann/Gefell CMV-563 kit

Neumann/Gefell CMV-563 Detachable-Capsule Tube Condenser Microphone, serviced by our mic tech guru Dave Way.

The Kondensator-Mikrofon CMV 563 is a tube condenser bottle microphone manufactured by the division of the Georg Neumann company in Gefell, East Germany, which has since been renamed Microtech Gefell. The mic was made from 1956-1971, then reintroduced in 2011 (see the new MTG CMV563).

The CMV-563 mic was conceived as a tube preamplifier that could be used with any of a variety of interchangeable capsule heads: the M 55 (omni), M 7 (cardioid), M 8 (figure eight) and M 9 (omni) as well as M7S, M8S and M9S with short handles. The M7, M8, and M9 attached via a long “bayonet” mount. The “S” versions screwed directly onto the mic body.

This Neumann CMV 563 Includes:

  • Power supply
  • Mic body
  • 1 x ELA MZ 032/2 capsule
  • 1 x M8 capsule
  • Cable
