TG Microphone is a solid-state large diaphragm condenser microphone
Continuing the rich tradition of innovation, the TG Microphone is unique in its feature-set and as the name implies, the sound is TG.
The TG Microphone's unique on-board EMI 'Tape Equalizer' section combined with its 'Dual Tone System', dedicated PSU and other features create an extremely flexible microphone capable of rivaling scenarios where the FET47, C414, U87, and U47 traditionally have found favor.
The Tape Equalizer is adapted from the NAB/IEC tape equalizer facility found on vintage EMI TG mastering desks, and applied to great effect in the TG Microphone. Historically used to compensate for tapes played back on machines of the opposite standard, the repurposed tape equalizer allows the engineer to sculpt the sound at the source in lieu of external processing.
The microphones shaping possibilities are further expanded when the Tape Equalizer is combined with the selectable 90/50 Hz Low-Cut filter.
The 'Dual Tone System' modifies TG Microphone's input and extends its flexibility to capture a wide range of sources. System 'A' is TG mid forward, while the alternate 'B' voicing takes extreme SPLs and is at home wherever a FET47 would be the choice.
The TG Microphone relies on a dedicated power supply (PSU). The use of a dedicated PSU, rather than 48V phantom power is integral to the TG Microphone's larger than solid-state sound.
Other features include: cardioid and omni patterns, and 10 dB pad.
Shockmount, 25' Mogami 4-pin mic cable, dedicated PSU, and wooden case are included.

This microphone has become our first choice for vocals. The tape EQ significantly changes its character and can be adjusted for each vocalist. We are beginning to use it for instruments and had outstanding results with acoustic guitar.

Awesome mic, works on everything. It's always clear and natural, without losing mojo.
Takes kick drum really well, a favourite on electric guitars and it's beautiful on vocals. The eq preset makes it very fun and creative.
