A phantom powered version of the original U47 was released in 1969 known as the U47 FET. The circuit was quite desirable, using transistors creating a very robust sound. The FET mic has since obtained a legendary status being the most preferred mic in obtaining larger-than-life kick and bass tracks as well as thick and full vocals. The U47 FET is now becoming as sought after as the U47.
“The R&D for the CM7 FET relied on studying the original U47 closely,” says Wunder Audio’s Mike Castoro. “Employing the exact replica of the original grille is one of the key aspects of achieving the correct performance. We’ve been BETA testing this mic for a year now and are very happy with the progress and end result.”
