  • Product Description

    The Peluso 22 47 LE is a large diaphragm condenser microphone styled after the legendary "Neumann U-47." The Peluso 22 47 LE is equipped with a vintage German 'EF' style steel tube (Stahlröhren) manufactured between the 1940s and the 1960s. These vintage tubes are thoroughly tested and fully covered by our 3 year warranty. With nearly identical specifications, this tube provides the same sonic qualities as the original U-47's VF14 tube. This vintage tube provides the Peluso 22 47 LE with the true vintage sound connoisseurs crave. Professional engineers enjoy great success with the 22 47 LE for a wide range of applications from male and female vocals to acoustic guitar to tenor sax. There are countless applications for this versatile microphone. The "47" is known for its clear sound while capturing low frequency nuances with smooth mid range and balanced high end. Connoisseurs will be proud to have a genuine vintage tube paired with a brand new capsule of the highest quality and components built to the specifications of the vintage equipment. 

    Our 22 47 LE has the additional feature of 9 polar patterns, controlled from the power supply. It captures the low frequency nuances of the original U-47 with smooth mids and balanced highs.

    Comparing the 22 47, 22 47 LE and 22 47 SE:

    All of the microphones in our 22 47 line are styled after the vintage Neumann U-47. This legendary microphone, manufactured in the 1950s and 60s, was revered for its clear sound, smooth and warm mid range, balanced high end and great body. The U-47 was used extensively during the recordings of the Beatles music and has continued to be used in countless well-known recordings since. Neumann discontinued production of this model when Telefunken ceased production of its key component, the metal VF 14 tube. Our 22 47 LE model is supplied with a German vintage tube from this era. We have worked for years to acquire a supply of these rare tubes. We are proud to offer a microphone with this true vintage tube. With our 22 47 SE model we are able to offer the same sonic quality with an American style metal tube. These tubes are available to us in larger quantities. This allows us to provide the sonic qualities of a "47" microphone with a lower price. The only discernible difference in sound between these two models is a 2 dB quieter noise floor on the SE model. The Peluso 22 47 model is based on a modification to the original U-47 for German Radio broadcast standards in the 1970s incorporating a glass triode tube. Carefully selected components, thorough testing, and attention to detail all come together making these some of our most popular microphones.
