  • Description
  • Features

The Telefunken U47 is a legendary cardioid valve condensor microphone, now faithfully manufactured as new by Telefunken themselves.

First developed in 1946, the Telefunken U47 is the mic of choice for a huge number of sound engineers and producers spanning the generations and decades since its first conception. The original is as popular today as it has ever been, and with the Telefunken U47 rolling out of the Telefunken factory as new once more it is now available to a whole new generation of audio purists.

The Telefunken U47 was the first microphone to provide switchable polar patterns, being omnidirectional and cardioid. The capsule on the original 47 was the famous M7, first developed by Georg Neumann in 1928. This combined with an amplifier built using surplus military valves and an output transformer created the most famous vocal mic of all time.

This combined with an amplifier built using surplus military valves and an output transformer created the most famous vocal mic of all time.

At a time when dark sounding ribbon mics were the industry standard, the Telefunken U47 blew all these mics away with it’s beautiful clear character and detailed response. When it was introduced the U47 brought a new level of audio quality to the recording and broadcast world, and is still incredibly popular today.

The latest incarnation of the Telefunken U47 is true to the original, and uses a newly built M7 capsule housed in a large chrome grill just like the original. The mic uses a newly manufactured BV8 transformer and VF-14k valve, built to the same specs as the same models that are found in the original microphones.

The rich and vibrant Telefunken U47 is a great tool on many different sources. The new model affords a whole new generation of sonic purists.
