1/5 Neumann U47

Buchen: Boring and predictable I know. But no mic manages to capture musical performance with both clarity and attitude as the U47 does – two things which tend to be mutually exclusive in the microphone obsession narrative. The Wagner U47w is the finest and truest re-make of the classic mic I’ve heard and deserves mention.

Name: Neumann U47 | Year Introduced: Conceived in 1969, mass production started in 1972 | Type: Condenser | Pattern: Cardioid
