“This microphone (M 930) is priced very
attractively, yet matches or exceeds the
performance of alternatives costing substantially
more.”
Hugh Robjohns, Sound On Sound, January 2004

This amazingly compact family of large diaphragm capacitor microphones combines Gefell’s latest sputtered gold capsule with photovoltaic decoupling technology to achieve outstandingly low self-noise (6dBA for M940, 7dBA for M930 & M950), with a remarkably wide dynamic range. As some of Gefell’s best loved FET microphones, these are much sought-after for solo voice and instrumental recordings, and are to be found at numerous broadcasting studios as presenter microphones, chosen for their natural warmth and low susceptibility to pop and proximity problems. The small physical size is a major advantage in today’s equipment-laden broadcasting studios to be able to maintain good sight-lines.

The cardioid M 930 is a favourite for voice-over and “on air” use due to its small size and does not get in the way when handling scripts, etc., as well as being unobtrusive for instrument recording – yet is still a full sized large diaphragm condenser microphone.  The M 930 is also excellenty as a main stereo pair and is available as a stereo set with ORTF  and XY mounting options.

The super-carddioid M 940 has the classic super-cardioid polar-pattern with an attenuation of about -7dB at 90º and -15dB at 180º

The wide-cardioid M 950 is especially useful for organ and grand piano due to the extended low end response and still retaining a degree of directivity for use where an omni-directional patten would not be appropriate.

Finish: satin nickel or dark bronze
