Bock Audio's Standard-setting Vocal Microphone Masterpiece!

The Bock Audio 507 is the latest masterpiece from David Bock - one of the world's leading experts on vintage microphones. Bock set out to design the ultimate large-bodied vocal microphone that could deliver transcendent results in even the most demanding vocal applications. To achieve the goal, Bock and George Cardas developed a patent-pending elliptical large-capsule design, the Bock/Cardas Ellipse, that delivers an even higher level of audio performance. Its unique design and its beefy tube, fully discrete electronics, and custom power supply similar to 1947-era microphones, put the Bock Audio 507 at the top of their renowned line.

Sound Deluxe

I have the same microphone I bought in 2006. Then it was called sound deluxe. Three albums now. None better in the world. I paid over $4,500 at the time. If you want to reach heaven with this mic. Pair it with an Avalon VT-737sp pre amp. And never look back. Because no other mic and mic preamp will ever ever catch you. End of your search for the best in the world or universe.

Bock - Better than the rest!

This microphone has the ability to capture a vocal and have it cut through. I voice and produce commercial and concert spots. Many times the music tracks are very loud combined with various sound effects. The Voice Over just cuts through no matter what! I recently voiced and produced spots for SGT PEPPER LIVE Featuring Cheap Trick for the Las Vegas Hilton Showroom in Las Vegas. Cheap Trick recordings are LOUD however I did not have to lower the volume to compensate for the Voice Over. My voice over using the Bock 5 Zero 7 just cut through. The producers of the show were blown away by the spots. Imagine if you’re recording singers! It can take any volume you can throw at it! Mate it to a quality pre amp and you’re flying!
