The FLEA 47 is designed to be a superb replica of the U47. It is equipped with an F7 capsule – our replica of the M7 capsule – our replica of BV8 transformer and Telefunken EF12 tube. Of course, the price depends on the type of tube. Those of you who have knowledge of prices know that the price of a good VF14 tube can reach 1,500€, so it is obvious that this mic is not a cheap thing. But this mic is possible to use for almost everything and always sounds great! The body is duraluminium and is nickel plated. The grille is available in two versions: glossy chrome or matte nickel. The whole set includes the mic in wooden box, cable, shock mount and power supply. You can choose from two PSUs, modern or vintage-style (modern PSU is standard, vintage-style by request).

I've used vintage U47s before and this really brings me back to it! I love the sound and the price!

I have used a ton of microphones in my day.
This microphone is so incredibly easy to use, and the warmth of the tube is phenomenal.
I purposely used an inexpensive acoustic guitar just to see what it would sound like.
The results were quite amazing, I didn't have to fuss over perfect placement at all, I immediately got a great sound.
Also with vocals, this microphone has a depth and clarity that I haven't heard before.
The sound has nice bottom, while it delivers a smooth high end.
No matter what i put in front of this beauty, it truly sounded like the source, and for me... That's all I need.
Thank you Flea :-)
