The MF65A is an active version of MF65 and brings its sonic performance to a new level. Specifically designed for extremely low noise it opens up a new territory of applications, notably classical music, broadcasting, movie, and studio recordings. Because of its condenser-like output level, and because of the optimized load on the ribbon and perfect impedance integration, the MF65 puts much less stress on the preamplifier and cable choices, making it a perfect and very affordable solution for projects and professional studios.
The MF65A includes a mechanism for fine ribbon adjustment with consistency, offering the highest possible performance. The top quality toroidal transformers were designed and tuned specifically for this particular model and are made in-house.
The MF65A is a precision instrument of uncompromised craftsmanship with the utmost attention paid to every detail both sonic and cosmetic. Its very tight manufacturing tolerances ensure the highest level of performance and uniformity from unit to unit. The MF65A tonal balance combines vintage vibe with modern sound, creating a unique recording tool. It excels on piano, brass instruments, drum overheads, acoustic and electric guitars, choir, violin, voice, and as a room microphone, among other applications.
It is sold with lifetime parts-2-year ribbon replacement warranty.
A stainless steel shock-mount is an integral part of the Samar MF65, however, it can be removed if two microphones are to be used in a Blumlein pair. Samar's Blumlein shock-mount (available as an additional accessory) is specifically designed to hold two MF65s with an indexing fixture using stainless steel thumb screws, locking both microphones with precision and high repeatability. This essentially turns a pair of Samar MF65s into a stereo microphone, for more versatility.
Both stock and Blumlein shock mounts provide secure mounting, while yielding a very high degree of decoupling, as the microphone is supported only with two pinpoints—an approach never before seen in the commercial microphone industry.
The Samar MF65 is presented in a beautiful hand-crafted storage box made of curly maple with walnut accents. Instead of usual foam, which deteriorates with time the box is lined with piano grade felt, securely clamping the microphone in place.
There are two options for the storage boxes:
1 - To fit a single microphone
2 - To fit a stereo pair with Blumlein shock mount
