Some historical data: The M 221 A was introduced in 1954. Taking advantage of the TELEFUNKEN AC701k valve, the M 221 A was the very first tube microphone on the market with a diameter of only 20 mm. The M 221 A was manufactured in limited quantities for just a few months. Following improvements to the design the M 221 B was introduced. The most obvious difference between the A and B versions was the way the capsule was mechanically adapted to the amplifier body. The M 221 A type has female threads and the B model male threads (the same as the current generation SCHOEPS Colette Series amplifiers but with a different contact plate).
So... it won't be long, before she's gone !!!
