M149 tube
Author: Posted by M. Schneider / Neumann

Dear Han,
while I'm not the one calculating end prices, there's some things I can say.
- True, you can get a 6111 for a few US$. These are all from those manufacturers we found completely unsuitable for microphone applications, after having test bunches of 100 pcs each. - In the end, there is only one type we use in the M149, and the price we have to pay for it is markedly higher, especially as the suppliers know that stocks aren't unlimited. - The tube has to be pre-selected, even with this manufacturer. - I presume you have a very early M149, which were still fitted with 8254 tubes. In this case, definitely the whole tube module has to be replaced when switching to over to the 6111.
I hope these explanations help...
Best regards, Martin Schneider Neumann Mic. Development
