MFR# f-48 microphone

Product Description

Vintage sound in a modern package, designed and hand built by an audio engineer. The Singular Audio f-48 is a microphone that has everything you want in a high end studio microphone, with an affordable price. The f-48 is a large diaphragm FET condenser microphone. The capsule is a K-47 type, the same type found in the famous U47 FET microphone. It has a very smooth top end, with a mid forward sound. Very pleasing on all kinds of sources, and especially vocals. Always full and never harsh.

Only the best components are used, with resistors hand matched for the best performance. This microphone features an amplification circuit with a FET transistor, manually biased for best sound. Inspired by a vintage Neumann circuit, this design generates a defined and crisp sound without hyped high end. In audio, often simple circuits and designs work well. This mic is very reminiscent of a U47 FET, but has fewer parts so it has a slightly warmer sound with more harmonics. It also has very low self noise. The mic features a 7:1 output transformer, for extra smooth tones, a flattering transient response and mojo. An internal switch allows for both cardioid and omni pattern operation. f-48 comes in a protective hard case, with shock mount. The body has a powder-coat finish, built to last, with laser engraved logo. The color of the microphone body may vary slightly, due to the production process.

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.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

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.
