A Smooth Silver Lining

Based on the 1950’s classic Sony C-37A, the Manley Reference Silver features a rich, warm low-end while smoothing out harsh high frequencies. This sonic profile makes the Reference Silver a perfect choice for female vocalists, horn sections, and drum overheads. The backside of the capsule features a unique and adjustable acoustic chamber which adjusts the pickup pattern from Cardioid to Omni, making it the perfect choice for a number of sources. The engineers at Manley chose to use David Josephson’s renowned C-3 capsule, which is a stellar recreation of the unique C-37 capsule. Paired with the highest build quality, and Manley’s IRON output transformers, the Reference Silver is sure to be a go-to choice whenever you need the rich, warm sounds of the C-37A.
