New Nevaton MC59/S microphones in action
« on: January 25, 2020, 03:03:15 PM »
Went out this week to work with my new Nevaton MC59 / S microphones (matched pair) > MixPre-3 II. Had to go in  >:D mode using Kangool (70°  few cm apart, front). I uses a bit of tape to tighten the cables as I looked 'kinda' fragile (for  >:D that is)
Mics are tiny, but not that tiny. Had to make holes in the Kangool to get them nice facing. Use a custom design mount from srs@srsrecordingservices.com (on shapeways).

Level was set to 20 on the MixPre, which was perfect. Only a few moments it went around 3db in red, but no problem with 32bit floating (48khz).

DFC in a small venue (400 people), with hanging PA (2 Adamson SX18 top and 2 Adamson A215 sub, each side).

Here is a sample

Any clever comments or questions on this? I think we have a winner here. The bass is quite heavy, but this might as well be the room and the fact the mics were partly hidden. I have a open taping concert in a few weeks and will post a new sample than.

If anyone feels like doing a fine remastering job, get in touch!

I’m very interested in these mics. What did you end up paying for a matched set? You get XLR or the hardwired version?

Your clip sounds fantastic. Super clean  :headphones:

XLR's are longer and heavier overall.  They were the same price as the hard wired when I picked up my hard wired matched pair.  It appears that the matched pair of XLR's are now 60 € cheaper than a hard wired matched pair.

I'm bummed that I haven't been able to run my pair due to health issues on my end.

Late last year, I inquired about a "complete" set, including matched cardioids/wide-cardioids/omnis with a pair of hardwired "S" cables (5m each). 

I was quoted approximately $2710 USD, including shipping to USA.

Paid 1500 euro for the MC59 S version (which had the XLR at the end of the wire, see picture). I wanted the capsules small.
It is a matched pair of cardiods.

It is a matched pair of cardiods.  Bought through dealer in The Netherlands, so postage was about 7 euro extra.

Please take a photo of these set up on a stand like at a show.

I've been itching for some new mics just for a change of scenery. I love my MCE400's so much these are on the list.

Thanks for the sound sample. Sounds fantastic.

Last weekend Aaronj and I got together at a Supersuckers gig. We got permission for tripodtaping and soundboard. See picture :)

Left stand is from Aaronj: DPA 4015c (wide-cardiods) > SD MixPre 6 (PAS, about 35cm apart, around 90 degree)
Sample: https://soundcloud.com/user-620536679/sample-dpa4015c

Right stand is from me: Nevaton MC59/S (matching cardiods) > SD MixPre 3 II (PAS, about 20 cm apart, around 90 degree)
Sample: https://soundcloud.com/user-620536679/supersuckers-sample-nevaton-mc59c

Mics where on the same height, around 2.25meter.

Sorry, no close pictures.
