The CM49 JFET S microphone features a unique low-noise profile JFET transistor with tube sound characteristics and optimized to provide low noise at both high and low frequency with beautiful detail and focus.
The CM49 JFET S has an incredibly rich audiophile accuracy and a round tone with smoother clarity throughout the frequency range. The recording will fit beautifully into the mix even without EQ.
Like The CM49 S, the Wunder Audio CM49 JFET S is very true to the vintage Neumann M49.
The CM49 JFET S has a slanted grille to limit the effect of grille resonance on the response. Because the grille is slanted and presents a continuously varying profile to the capsule, there are fewer standing waves generated.
The CM49 JFET S Suprema uses the same Historic Berlin M7 capsule as the CM7 Suprema, and yet because of the completely different housing and the triode electronics, there are few similarities in the sound of these microphones. Both mics are superb vocal mics, though neither was designed for the purpose of close-miking, the CM49 JFET S and CM7 S really shines when placed close up with a loud source and creates a very desirable proximity effect.
