Neumann U47 FET: A Renowned Condenser Microphone for the Ages

The Neumann U 47 FET Collector's Edition condenser microphone commemorates what is arguably one of the most popular large-diaphragm condenser microphones in recording history. Neumann has started with the specs that made the original U 47 FET such an essential asset to any major recording studio in the world, and primed this collector's edition for your recording pleasure. With its wide frequency range, fast and detailed response, and original U47 FET design and transformer, this iconic workhorse of a microphone is perfect for recording drums, bass, vocals, and various acoustic instruments.

Amazingly Detailed Response from Neumann's FET Circuit

Your U 47 FET Collector's Edition microphone uses the same FET circuit as the original to capture the nuance and subtlety of every performance with amazing precision. With a maximum SPL of 147 dB, you'll never have to worry about your U 47 FET distorting during tracking -- go ahead and mic up guitar cabs, horns and other loud sources. The K47 capsule and the FET preamplifier circuit deliver incredibly fast response to transience and awesomely dynamic applicability. Whether you're recording drums, bass, acoustic instruments, or vocals, your U 47 FET is ready and waiting.

Tailored Frequency Response

Along with having a high maximum SPL, your Neumann U 47 FET boasts a frequency response of 40 Hz to 16 kHz. The strong proximity effect can be curtailed utilizing the low-cut filter that comes in at 140 Hz. Although this mic is a stellar performer for tracking low-end instruments like kick drums and bass, don't shy away from trying it out with other instruments as well to see how clear and transparent your recording sessions can get.

Add a Jewel to your Mic Collection

Having such a wide range of instrumental applicability really makes this microphone a must have for your recording studio. To commemorate this iconic asset, a collector's edition carton box and a certificate of authenticity are included. You really can't go wrong with Neumann large-diaphragm condenser microphones, and this U 47 FET will show you how Neumann remains a champion in the game of capturing music the way it's meant to be heard.

Neumann U 47 FET Collector's Edition

The 1960s and 1970s are considered to be one of the most innovative periods in the history of music. Many sound concepts of this pioneering time are currently being rediscovered and are regarded as a great enrichment -- particularly in the digital audio world. The interplay among studio technologies of different generations forms the basis of unprecedented freedom for new sound experiments.

An icon of that era which was decisive in helping to shape the sound of the 1970s is the Neumann U 47 FET. As the transistorized successor of the U 47, it permitted the processing of very high sound pressure levels for the first time, for instance allowing positioning directly in front of loud amps. Due to this feature, and the capsule sound derived from its famous tube-based predecessor, the U 47 FET contributed to many legendary recordings of the time. Now the U 47 FET is back! For the Collector's Edition U 47 FET, Neumann has resumed production of this classic mic, according to the original production documents and schematics. The Collector's Edition is supplied with a high-quality wooden case with special packaging, and an individual certificate with the serial number of the microphone.

In terms of technical design, the U 47 FET is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with a cardioid directional characteristic and FET 80 circuit technology. This technology, also used in the U 87, is characterized by a wide dynamic range. Like its predecessor, the U 47, the U 47 FET employs the K 47 capsule which features a slight boost in the frequency response above 2 kHz. If required, a switchable low-cut filter raises the lower cutoff frequency electronically from 40 Hz to 140 Hz, and switchable attenuation can reduce transmission levels by 10 dB. In addition, to prevent overloading of the connected preamp, the output signal can be reduced by 6 dB via a switch on the bottom of the microphone.
