Product Description

You’ve been considering it for a while: a high-end tube mic that’s leagues beyond anything you currently own. We invite you to consider the Manley Reference Cardioid. When a track needs to make an impact, the Reference Cardioid obliges, with a sound that’s bold and authoritative, yet stunningly transparent. For years, it’s been a top choice for engineers and producers looking to record huge-sounding vocals and instruments with audiophile-grade sonics. Its nuanced, silky top end is extended well past the range of human hearing. The mids are warm and clear. The bass is powerful and punchy. Whatever the source, you’ll always get eat-it-with-a-spoon results with the Manley Reference Cardioid.
