Manley Labs Nu Mu
MPN #MANLEY NUMU
Smartly engineered to build efficiently and esthetically designed to elicit ravishing compliments from your clients, the Manley Nu Mu breaks new ground in performance and value.
Building upon our proud heritage, the Manley Nu Mu® merges the esoteric "T-Bar mod" all-tube front end from the legendary Manley Variable Mu® and makes it standard followed by a new solid state audio chain for the smoothest dynamics action coupled to the punchiest sonic path. Featuring Manley's new HIP function, the Nu Mu finesses dynamic control to bring up lower level details without knocking the life out of exciting transients.
