The P-280 delivers an ultra-high resolution signal, crystal clear low noise-floor and vacuum tube warmth. The perfect combination for today’s demanding recording environments. The P-280 employs our unique tube/FET combination amplifier stage to achieve the quietest noise-floor we’ve ever encountered in a tube microphone. The miniature pentode tube keeps the circuit’s signal warm and pleasing, never brittle or strident. The even frequency response, crisp detail, and dead quiet noise floor bring astonishing results from almost any source. It has an assertive gain level, and easily handles very high SPL sources. A balanced output achieved through a generously sized output transformer. The body and head grille are machined brass with a sleek black finish. The new Peluso P-280, a new standard for today’s widely diverse signal chains.

The P-280 is paired with the Peluso MX-56 power supply. The dual sided capsule in the P-280 enables the power supply to feature 9 polar patterns in an array from omni-directional to cardioid to figure eight.

The P-280 features our heavy-duty 8-pin screw on cable connector. The large diameter pins in the screw on connector give a tight and secure cable connection designed to perform for a lifetime of use.

Acoustically matched pairs available upon special request.
