Although primarily used as a vocal mic, the U47 is sometimes used for room mics, drum overheads, pianos, stringed instruments or guitar cabs. The uses are limited only by your imagination!

History

The Neumann U 47 is the granddaddy of large diaphragm condensers, with a justifiably legendary sound. It was the first post-war mic produced by Georg Neumann GmbH in West Berlin. Built around a World War II military radio tube with a capsule design from 1929, it became a bench mark mic in the early fifties. Engineers found out quickly that the sensitivity of the U 47 greatly enhanced the detail of their recordings. The mic was subsequently used on hundreds of high fidelity recordings ranging from classical to jazz. And the combination of head grille, diaphragm, tube and output transformer created a magical tone that has reproduced the vocals of virtually every famous singer in recent music history.
