Bock Audio 195 Large-diaphragm FET Microphone at a Glance:
Built with quality in mind
The 195 provides a pad (-15dB) and bass roll-off (10dB ) - further enhancing this microphone's extraordinary versatility. Component selection and construction reflect Bock Audio's dedication to lasting quality. The capsule uses a premium-quality 1-inch gold-sputtered diaphragm.The electronics package has no surface mount components. Instead, it incorporates Roderstein resistors, low ESR elecrolytic capacitors, polypropylene coupling capacitors and a unique FET circuit exhibiting remarkable low noise, low capacitance, and extended high frequency characteristics.
No FET fizzle
Ample headroom throughout prevents the FET "fizzle" plaguing other designs, while a massive output transformer maintains coherent signal integrity across the full audio bandwidth.
The "do-it-all" Bock Audio mic
For budget-conscious studios facing a wide range of demands, the 195 serves as a "do-it-all" premium condenser microphone. It delivers superb results on lead vocal tracks as well as in VO/ADR use, providing remarkable fullness and presence with exceptionally low background noise.
195 capsules are hand-picked by David Bock. Each capsule must meet his criteria or they are rejected. The other microphone parts in the assembly are all sourced locally in Los Angeles and hand assembled, one at a time, by David Bock himself in his production area in Los Angeles, CA.

Just Lovely!!!!!! close [-]
The Bock Audio 195 is an amazingly clean, slightly vintage-sounding, switchable FET mic. It's clean, crisp, and very transparent, yet has a lot of character. Definitely one of my personal favorite FET mics for vocals.
