Neumann U47 Microphone Clone
The Holy Grail of Vintage Tube Microphones.
The U47 mic setting new standards for audio excellence and introduced in 1948... built by George Neumann and had the Telefunken VF-14M tube that offered the perfect high quality sound that Neumann was looking for. In the early 50's a brand new U47 in box sold for $390. However, the VF14 tubes were very limited and by the 1970's had
completely disappeared, so the late production U47s had the RCA Nuvistor 13CW4 tubes, which were retrofitted to replace the VF-14M tubes with poor results. Modifications to the U47 often turn the classic U47 into no more than a decorative show piece.
As it is nearly impossible to find a VF14 for sale unless you're ready to pay crazy money top dollar for it .
A 28 mm gold sputtered PVC diaphragm with a dual membrane design... The U47 Capsule the M7 was original used in early U47, U48 and the M49. The M7 capsule has the diaphragm directly glued to the body. The K47 capsule Neumann used in the later models of the U47 have a flat ring with screws to mount the diaphragm.
Famous for it's big warm tone... The U47 is responsible majority of classic recordings from the 50's, 60's and 70's. With a large proximity effect that moving closer to the mic increases bass response, and has a characteristic pek around 8 KHz.
All bow to the King of microphones...The Holy Grail of Vintage Tube Microphones...
The Neumann U47.
