Comparing the 22 47, 22 47 LE and 22 47 SE:

All of the microphones in our 22 47 line are styled after the vintage Neumann U-47. This legendary microphone, manufactured in the 1950s and 60s, was revered for its clear sound, smooth and warm mid range, balanced high end and great body. The U-47 was used extensively during the recordings of the Beatles music and has continued to be used in countless well-known recordings since. Neumann discontinued production of this model when Telefunken ceased production of its key component, the metal VF 14 tube. Our 22 47 LE model is supplied with a German vintage tube from this era. We have worked for years to acquire a supply of these rare tubes. We are proud to offer a microphone with this true vintage tube. With our 22 47 SE model we are able to offer the same sonic quality with an American style metal tube. These tubes are available to us in larger quantities. This allows us to provide the sonic qualities of a "47" microphone with a lower price. The only discernible difference in sound between these two models is a 2 dB quieter noise floor on the SE model. The Peluso 22 47 model is based on a modification to the original U-47 for German Radio broadcast standards in the 1970s incorporating a glass triode tube. Carefully selected components, thorough testing, and attention to detail all come together making these some of our most popular microphones.

The 2247 is a force to be reckoned with. Its buttery smooth lows and low mids with clear and open top end make it ideal for vocals. However, it’s fantastic on most other sources as well. I’ve spent a lot of time with original U47’s and to me, I have an pretty hard time noticing a difference between the Peluso and the original. The build of this mic is exceptional. The power supply and cable seem sturdy and like they will last for years to come. Mic comes with a beautiful wood box, and it all fits nicely in the large case that’s included. This was a great solution for us, classic sound for a fraction of the price for the original.

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.
