The 2B Beauty is a large diaphragm tube condenser microphone that was first introduced into the market in 2015, and has many studio engineers scratching their heads at the quality versus price ratio. It uses a patented, pure gold coated, 34mm dual sided capsule, and sits at the top of the quality spectrum with some of the best tube microphones available. It has a very clean and flat frequency response, with detailed and natural sounding mid and high frequencies. The 2B Beauty is an amazing vocal microphone, but with the switchable low cut filter, the -10dB pad, and 9 different polar patterns, it can also be used in a wide variety of recording applications, such as acoustic instruments, orchestras, and even drum overheads. Comes with custom wind screen, shock mount, power supply, power cord, 5 pin XLR, and interchangeable white and blue body's.
-Classic plate-follower circuit with transformer-coupled output, similar to those used in vintage German tube-mic designs
-Custom made dual-bobbin output transformer
-Psvane 12AX7-TII Premium Grade Treasure Tube
-German red Wima capacitors
-Optional Shuguang 12AT7 is also available. It does not enhance the sound, but rather provides a different tonal character, and more headroom.
-Note: The 2B Beauty is an enhanced version of the iSK TRM-11. The TRM-11 uses a Shuguang 12AX7B tube, which is a low cost stock tube used in various OEM products. The 2B Beauty uses a Psvane 12AX7-TII Premium Grade Treasure Tube, which are the factory tested cream of the crop from a company that specializes only in high end tubes. This tube provides even cleaner amplification, and gives this microphone more clarity, and a smoother high end.
