Although primarily used as a vocal mic, the U47 is sometimes used for room mics, drum overheads, pianos, stringed instruments or guitar cabs. The uses are limited only by your imagination!
The Neumann U 47 is the granddaddy of large diaphragm condensers, with a justifiably legendary sound. It was the first post-war mic produced by Georg Neumann GmbH in West Berlin. Built around a World War II military radio tube with a capsule design from 1929, it became a bench mark mic in the early fifties. Engineers found out quickly that the sensitivity of the U 47 greatly enhanced the detail of their recordings. And the combination of head grille, diaphragm, tube and output transformer created a magical tone that has reproduced the vocals of virtually every famous singer in recent music history.Beautiful condition classic tube condenser; switchable omni-directional or cardioid patterns.
