For sale is my Chameleon Labs TS-1 tube condenser microphone. It is in good working condition with normal cosmetic wear from use. Case and power supply both have some scuffs. This is a crazy great tube condenser, especially given it's price. Unfortunately I have to downsize my mic collection a little bit.
I like Treelady Studio's description of its sound: "Chameleon Labs is a company that is trying to make vintage-sounding gear using modern components while keeping an affordable price tag. The TS-1 is a small diaphragm tube condenser mic. Within minutes of turning it on you'll appreciate the warm, gooey, chocolaty-good coloration this mic imparts on any source you put in front of it. Particularly great on brighter acoustic guitars, cymbals, and any time you want to have a round, warm, colored sound in your recording chain."
