Heiserman Audio H47tube Condenser Microphone (B-Stock)

Richly detailed, perfectly balanced tube microphone tribute to the legendary U47 - includes a Pelican case, shock mount, power supply, and cables

MFR# H47tube

Product Description

Possibly the most famous mic in the world, the Neumann U47 is worthy of its endless accolades. With its richly detailed, perfectly balanced tone, the U47 has earned its place as the king of microphones. The Heiserman H47tube is our tribute to the king.

Extensive side-by-side comparisons with a highly sought after vintage U47 allowed us to fine tune and dial in the exact components needed to perfectly match the tone. The H47tube sounds so close to the vintage mic that Grammy winning engineers have struggled to tell the two apart.


The Heiserman team of unabashed tone snobs, and when a mic sounds this good, it has to look the part too. From the integrated polar pattern switch to the exact dimensions of the headbasket mesh, this premium handmade mic stands toe-to-toe with any mic that claims the U47 heritage.

Whether you're an experienced pro or new to the U47, you'll appreciate the attention to detail and the premium touches that make the H47tube look and feel as good as it sounds. From top to bottom, it doesn't get any better than this!


The original Neumann U47 was produced over a period of 16 years, during which time there were two different capsules, the K47 and the M7. The Heiserman H47tube is available here with the HK47 capsule. For most people, the HK47 capsule will be the best choice because it provides the most balanced tone, and is equally well suited for vintage and modern productions alike.


Heiserman tested countless transformers, tubes, capacitors, and resistors before settling on the final design of the H47tube. Each of these hand-selected components contributes to the beautiful tone of the H47tube, No expense was spared, ensuring the absolute best performance and sound.

  • Custom USA made BV08 transformer
  • NOS EF800 Series Tube
  • Sommer Tube Cable with custom connector
  • NOS Mial Polystyrene Capacitor
  • NOS Soviet Paper in Oil Capacitors
  • Premium Ohmite Thick Film and Vishay Resistors


When it comes to microphones, it makes sense to emulate the vintage designs of the past -- they're tried and true, and they've been used on countless hit records. But not everything vintage is worth emulating. Case in point: the case. Why are we still putting expensive mics in wooden boxes with flimsy hinges that couldn't withstand a six inch fall? The H47 Tube ships in a Pelican case with custom molded foam. And it's not just any foam -- it's laser cut, cross-linked polyethylene (i.e. the fancy stuff). It's shockproof, waterproof, and also looks pretty darn good.

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.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

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.
