ADK Custom Shop “Blue Suede” Z-Mod-67:
The Z-Mod-67 has the early 60’s vibe. Almost imperceptibly Mellow. Scoops nasal, sibilance issues in a subtle way. More presence than the 47, and a bit more air than the 47, however the tailored top-end makes it smoother than either the 12 or 251 designs. Very Beatle-esque!
It took our design-team five years to put the “DNA” of each Classic Valve Mic into the capsule tonality. We took an additional two years beta-testing Transformer Combinations for each of the five Capsules. We enlisted the help of the most respected ‘bat-ears’ in the recording industry, including the late, great Mike Shipley, Chuck Ainlay, and Ronny Brookshire, etc. We ended up selecting an American, a Swedish, an English and a German Transformer builder.
