The Peluso Microphone Lab 22 47 SE is a large diaphragm condenser microphone styled after the legendary U-47. To achieve the distinctive "47" sound, Peluso uses the 6SJ7 American style steel tube which provides the same sonic quality as the VF14. With nearly identical specifications, the only discernible difference between these two tubes is a 2 dB quieter noise floor on the 5693/6SJ7. These tubes are thoroughly tested and fully covered by a 3-year warranty.

Professional engineers enjoy great success with the 22 47 SE when used in a wide range of applications from male and female vocals to acoustic guitar to tenor sax. Renowned for its clear sound while capturing the low-frequency nuances of the original U-47, the 227 47 SE features smooth midrange and balanced high-end. Engineers will be proud to have a hand built microphone with the sound of a genuine U-47.

The 22 47 SE is paired with the Peluso MX-56 power supply. The dual-sided capsule in the 22 47 SE enable the power supply to feature 9 polar patterns in an array from omnidirectional to cardioid to figure eight.

The 22 47 SE features a heavy-duty 8-pin screw-on cable connector. The large diameter pins in the screw on connector give a tight and secure cable connection designed to perform for a lifetime of use.

This microphone kit comes as a complete system including the 22 47 SE Microphone in a wood box, power supply, new-style 8-pin screw on cable assembly, and a shock mount, all packed in a flight case.

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

All of the microphones in Peluso's 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 midrange, 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.

THE 22 47 LE model is supplied with a German vintage tube from this era. Peluso has worked for years to acquire a supply of these rare tubes. They are proud to offer a microphone with this true vintage tube. With the 22 47 SE model Peluso are able to offer the same sonic quality with an American style metal tube. These tubes are available in larger quantities. This allows for a microphone featuring the sonic qualities of a "47" microphone at 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 the most popular microphones.
