Bock Audio 407 – No Longer Available

Studio tube cardioid microphone with power supply, custom cable, LB Pro Spider suspension - packed in a shipping carton
MFR# 407

Product Description

The Bock Audio 407 continues the Bock tradition of the finest hand built microphones by using an outstanding power supply and amplifier found in the flagship 507, but with a traditional hand selected and custom built k47 type capsule.

Designed with the classics of yesteryear in mind, the 407 has the girth and reach of a vintage microphone without the maintenance issues or hard-to-find parts. The Bock 407 embodies all the most important characteristics of the original while offering consistency, reliability and long term serviceability that is a requirement for today.

The 407's primary use will likely be male or female lead vocals due to its signature proximity effect. The original 47 had proximity effect behavior that was part of its sound and why it defined "big vocals". With up to +12dB of boost at 100Hz when used at 1 inch working distance, the 47 signature was "the sound" of many great artists such as Frank Sinatra. Led Zeppelin 1 used a 47 on nearly every vocal track. Tuesday Night Music Club and Cheryl Crowe was a classic application of a 47 for vocals.

The key application was and still is close worked vocals, male or female. Tube 47's were never really flat even at distance (beyond 18 inches) due to its signature head grille sound. Brass instruments were a favorite 47 application (the classic jazz signature of the most famous records from the 1950's) and small ensembles (of nearly any instrumentation) saw the 47 as the "go to" mic. Cello and violin at short distance gain intimacy and acoustic or electric bass will find a perfect warm tone without muffling using the 407. Individual drums or drum kits will have astounding impact with no overt artificial high end found when using some small diaphragm mics. Solo performers who sing while playing acoustic guitars may be recorded with just this one microphone.

Ships in a cardboard outer container including microphone in wood box, power supply, cable and spider shockmount.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
