   The Schnauzer is a dual diaghram 9 pattern microphone that
combines the Old School circuits with modern transformers.
The Schnauzer is housed in a MXL9000 body and sports an
ADK TT capsule, Cinemag transformer, GE NOS 6072A tube,
and high quality capacitors. The circuit is an incarnation of the
Telefunken ElaM251.
   This mic sounds full and balanced. The highs are smooth and
silky, The mids are clean detailed and crisp. The bass is full
and firm.The TT capsule works very well with this combination
 and has none of the harsh highs found in some microphones.
Several options are available for this microphone that can custom
tune this microphone to fit your needs.
