The U47 Dual Pattern Tube Microphone from Telefunken has been a staple in the recording industry since 1946. The first microphone to provide switchable cardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns, the U47 delivers both the warmth and versatility expected of the vintage studio tube microphone. The famous M7 capsule features pristine tonal response and high SPL, and is coupled with Telefunken's BV8 output transformer and VF14K vacuum tube. The VF14K tube is Telefunken's first plug-and-play design. The coveted U47 is sought after by leading recording professionals for capturing both vocals and instruments alike.
