SNAMM03: Luna - The M-Audio Condenser Mic
Testing 1,2. Ahem. Fly me to the moon

M-Audio's partnership with Groove Tubes continues to blossom with the brand new Luna professional condenser microphone. The eye-catching lollipop design combines with state-of-the-art electronics to create an inexpensive microphone that honors vintage microphone principles. M-Audio designed Luna with the goal of delivering a microphone of uncompromising quality at an extremely affordable price. It is an ideal mic for first time purchasers, as well as more experienced recordists wishing to add a fresh new sound to their microphone locker. The large diaphragm cardioid condenser design is perfect for professionally capturing vocals, guitar, piano—and, in fact, most sound sources. Luna also sports a solid brass capsule—a quality valued by microphone connoisseurs for the warmer sound it delivers. The 1.1” diaphragm is metallized in a proprietary evaporated gold process. Luna uses Class A FET electronics, a technology that is much quieter than the op-amp technology often found in solid state microphones. All Luna microphones are also +/- 1dB from the standard reference microphone and from each other, clearly demonstrating the high manufacturing standards employed in their production. “Luna addresses the needs of a wide range of recordists,” says Adam Castillo, M-Audio’s Marketing Director. “We specifically designed the mic to accommodate the budget of just about anybody serious about recording. It has a great sound that is very reminiscent of classic vintage microphones, yet also has a unique character all its own. And there’s no getting around the fact that it’s one very hot looking microphone. Luna makes a statement both visually and aurally.” The Luna carries an MSRP of $249.95 and is now shipping.
