6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Vintage Sound Meets Modern Technology

The Neumann M 149 Tube Studio Microphone combines classic, vintage warmth with modern technology, producing a truly unique tone, ideal for vocalists and more. The M 149 Tube Microphone features a large-diaphragm transformerless tube design with switchable polar patterns. This high-end tube microphone features two slide switches located below the large headgrille, allowing you to selection from nine directional patterns. The wide frequency range and range of polar patterns makes it ideal for a variety of recording applications from vocals to percussion. The nine polar patterns deliver exceptional clarity and refined audio for a truly unique character.

Wide Range Of Recording Applications

Its versatile nature makes it ideal for a variety of recording applications. With its nine polar patterns in total, the M 149 Tube Microphone is not only ideal as a superb vocalist microphone but can be great in a range of other recording situations. The modern circuitry and extremely low noise level provide exceptional audio performance. At the heart of the microphone is the K 49 capsule – highly renowned for its incredible acoustic qualities, used in the legendary U 47 and M 49 models. This capsule enables the M 149 Tube to feed long microphone cables without any colouration, ideal for studio settings.

Seven-Position Filter

One of the most unique features on the microphone is the seven-position filter, which allows you to select between a high-pass filter, advancing in half-octave steps between 20 Hz and 160 Hz (- 3dB). The filter is highly useful for minimising rumble from air-conditioning or wind from background noise. The filter is also an effective tool for controlling the audio signal when the mic is used at close distance.

Design & Construction

The robust yet sleek design of the Neumann M 149 combines vintage aesthetics with a modern sheen. The M 149 comes complete with the N 149 power supply, specifically designed to feed the microphone through an 8-core cable. The output connector for the audio cable is a 3-in XLR, with the output signal balanced. Additionally, the microphone comes complete with an aluminium case, 8-core microphone connecting cable, power supply and EA 170 full elastic microphone suspension as well as a dust cover.
