Midiman (Arcadia, Calif.) announced the shipment of the new line of Groove Tubes microphones. This all-new, American-designed lineup of studio condensers features six different models differentiated by medium- or large-diaphragm sizes, tube of FET circuitry, and single or multiple polar patterns.

The entire line employs sold-brass capsules. Ultra-thin evaporated gold diaphragms yield an extremely transparent sound. These diaphragms, according to Midiman, are half as thin as its nearest competitor; 3 microns on the large diaphragms and 6 microns on the medium-sized diaphragms.

All large-diaphragm Groove Tubes microphones incorporate the company's unique Disk Resonator technology, delivering extended frequency response that is ideal for accurately capturing the realism of any sound source. Disk Resonator interacts with part of the diaphragm at high frequencies to extend the range of the capusle transparently, through 20 kHz and beyond. Each mic is hand-assembled, hand-tested and measured against Groove Tubes golden-reference mic; each mic must measure within +/- 1 dB of the reference mic in order to pass inspection.

The new line also introduces affordable matched pairs for stereo miking; all Groove Tubes mics now ship in matched pairs without a penalty fee.

Midiman announced in January 2002 that it will begin distributing Groove Tubes mics
