Nashville-based mic makers Luke Audio have made a concerted effort to keep all production of their mics in the USA, even platinum-sputtering their own diaphragms in-house — a process that is unique. Their latest offering, the AL1 Phoenix features three switchable polar patterns (figure-of-eight, cardioid and omni) is designed to emulate the vintage tube greats and the mic itself will cost $1199. To that end, their mic sports an NOS (new old stock) 6072a vacuum tube, AMI output transformers and hand selected resistors. Discover more about the mic and company from our Summer NAMM show report below.
