Arabella Tube Condenser Microphone


5.0 average, based on 5 reviews

Manufacturer: Beesneez Microphones

Product Information

The Arabella is the third tube condenser microphone designed and released by BeesNeez Microphones. Not being a clone manufacturer, we wanted to create something different; we wanted to capture the essence of of the venerable U47/U48 with the versatility and build quality of the M49. How did we do it? The answer is simple. Take only the best materials (bronze and brass), NOS European steel Vacuum Tubes, Paper in oil and foil film Capacitors, American made resistors that have been designed for use in medical imaging add to this a hybrid capsule that captures the sound of the M7 with the stability and repeatability of the K47 mixed with over 1000 hours in R&D and last but certainly not least, build the entire microphone in our factory.

The Arabella tube condenser microphone met and in many cases exceeded every expectation that we set out to achieve in the beginning. Sonically we wanted to create a microphone that had a sense of cochlear linearity (TM) ie; hears and creates an amplified analogy of what we hear. The Arabella is a great classic sounding microphone that is a real go to, great for male and female vocals, natural sounding rooms and can take a real beating on drums or amp cabs. Often when we are asked what the Arabella sounds like we say “It’s like a mansion with the entire front wall missing, open and huge with a classic expensive sound”. The Arabella features our dual lapped K7 capsule, European Steel tube and 9 polar patterns.

Exceptional World Class Microphone

What's there not to like about the Arabella. Aesthetically for a high performance tube condenser, the classic retro build is very impressive. Most importantly though, is that it truly is a solidly built and well engineered microphone with a beautiful rich open sound. This mic has excelled in every application so far, mainly vocals and acoustic guitar but as an all round workhorse, I can't wait to try it on other sources.

The mic of dreams

Arabella really is a mic of dreams... You have to really hear her to believe it. Whether its the big Sinatra sound or a beautiful acoustic, Arabella is my go to mic for just about anything. Put her 2 feet in front of a kick drum and you will go weak at the knees. If I could only have one mic, it would be this one.

The Arabella is a fantastic mic. Warm and thick, it's been excellent as a vocal mic in my studio across a range of voices. I've recorded acoustic guitar and violin with it as well and it has a classic tone. I couldn't be happier with the results. Well done Ben, well done....

Brilliant Mic!

I love my Arabella! This thing sounds rich and amazing. The top end is detailed and silky, and not harsh at all, the bottom is full and powerful, while the mids seem to sit just right. I've recorded with some of the finest Neumann mics in some of the best studios in the world, and this Arabella is right up there with them. I bought on a hunch that Beesneez was making some of the finer boutique mics out there these days, and I was not disappointed. Although it took a little time to get the mic, it was worth it. Thanks Ben!
