Heiserman Audio H47 FET Condenser Microphone (Demo Deal)

A modern nod to the classic U47 FET condenser microphone featuring a versatile, smooth, and detailed sound

MFR# H47 FET

Product Description

Versatile, smooth, and detailed - the Heiserman H47 is a nod to the classic Neumann U47 FET condenser microphone, which was originally designed as a phantom powered version of the U47 tube mic. The H47 faithfully recreates the sound of the U47 FET, and excels in all of the same uses. Two years in the making, the H47 was developed alongside, and compared extensively to an original U47 FET. We think you'll be blown away by the sound of this mic, whether you're a new user or someone experienced with the original vintage mic.

Thanks to its smooth, full response, and gentle presence boost, the H47 is well suited to be your main studio mic. Or, if you're looking for a dedicated mic for vocals or kick drum, the H47 is the perfect choice!

Modern Design

Heiserman's 'no compromise' commitment to quality means getting the details right - they design and manufacture the H47 in the USA. As such, they have full control over every aspect of the mic's construction, from the capsule to the head basket, from the body to the final plating. They've bent over backwards to make sure that the H47 sounds incredible, looks stunning, and feels amazing in your hands. This is a premium mic, through and through.

The Heart of the Microphone - The HK47 Capsule

Unlike most mic companies, Heiserman design, manufacture, and assemble their own capsules. By keeping everything in house, they have been able to extensively refine our capsules, while also ensuring the highest quality and consistency of manufacturing and assembly. With the latest version of the HK47, Heiserman have reached the pinnacle of this design - the ultimate balance of smooth, full, and present. In other words, it doesn't get any better than this!

The Circuit

The H47 is true to the original circuit, and features 100% through-hole components, including modern, low noise FETs -- this mic is dead quiet! It also has high-quality Wima film caps and precision resistors, as well as polystyrene and tantalum caps (per the original schematic).

And like the 47 FET, the H47 features two separate pad switches, one -10 dB, and one -6 dB. For many engineers, combining the two pads was the secret to capturing incredible kick drum tones. The additional pad is achieved via the inclusion of a custom Cinemag transformer. Of course, the H47 also includes a 200 Hz high pass filter switch.

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.

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.
