Hamburg Mk8 Description
New Upgraded Version of the Popular Hamburg Edition with an even More Fine-Tuned Response-Curve Designed to Replicate a Vintage Late 1950’s German Tube (Valve) Mic. Hamburg Mk 8 is the Eighth Generation of ADK Microphones offering a Mellow, Robust Tonality.
The Hamburg Mk8 Favors “Crooner” Vocals or Ballads, Classical, Folk, Jazz Singers; Reeds.
Applications: Very Useful for Vocals or Sources needing a Rounder Tone. For Strings, Reeds, Nasal or Thin Vocals, or Vocals with Sibilance Issues – the Hamburg Will Work Wonders! Hamburgs have “Smoothness”, Historically the Classic German Tone.
THE HAMBURG HAS A ROBUST QUALITY THAT TENDS TO ROUND-OUT THE TONE OF THE SOURCE. GREAT ON VOCALS, REEDS, OR BASS ELEMENTS.
