Neumann U47 Dual-Pattern Tube Microphone #2372 (Vintage)

Two-pattern large diaphragm tube condenser mic

Product Description

Excellent condition classic tube microphone with an incredible enveloping warmth modern mics just can't reproduce. This particular example has a Nuvister tube, new power supply, and an aftermarket mic box.

Applications

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!

 

History

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. The mic was subsequently used on hundreds of high fidelity recordings ranging from classical to jazz. 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.

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.
