Neumann U47

The U47 : King of condensers. The most iconic microphone with the telefunken
Ela M 250/251.
Its warm and precise sound is due to a very simple and clever electronic design. There is nothing more in a 47 than a few caps, some resistors, a couple of diodes, a valve, a transformer and... some Berlin air. The microphone offers two directivities (omni+cardio for the 47, omni figure of 8 for the 48). The typical wonderfull sound comes mainly from the valve and the transformer. It was made from 1947 until 1965 and blends perfectly with the 21st century's technolog. the best choice on male voice, trumpet etc.
