The Telefunken AK-47 MKii is a large diaphragm valve condensor microphone from the R-F-T series of renowned manufacturers Telefunken.

Well known for their high end valve mics, with the R-F-T series Telefunken have developed a range of incredible sounding microphones at a far more affordable price point. Often their no compromise ethic to design yields extraordinarily expensive microphones, so with models such as the Telefunken AK-47 MKii in the R-F-T range Telefunken are able to bring their microphones to a much wider audience at a lower cost.

The R-F-T line, of which the Telefunken AK-47 MKii is a member, makes use of American designed circuitry with NOS valves and standard parts from foreign manufacturers. Without cutting corners, Telefunken have produced an affordable alternative to their acclaimed top of the range models.

The Telefunken AK-47 MKii uses a new amplifier circuit based around an EF732 valve and a custom made transformer that is an exact replica of the famed BV8 transformer as found in the original (and reproduction) U47 and U48 microphones. The Telefunken AK-47 MKii uses a dual sided capsule too for flexibility.

The sound of the Telefunken AK-47 MKii is probably closest to the famous U47 and U48 models (the latter of which was once described as George Martin’s favourite microphone). There for the tone is naturally rich and beautiful.

The Telefunken AK-47 MKii is suited to a huge range of tasks (just ask the engineers who have visited Livingston Studio 2 recently), and shines in particular on vocals.
