Flea 47 Tube Microphone Set

Flea 47 Tube Condenser Microphone Set front

The Flea 47 Tube Microphone not merely looks identical to the original Neumann U47 but uses the same capsule and the closest equivalent tubes so offers the rich, dark, full bodied sound that gives vocals that unique, huge sound in a track. The Flea 47 is beautifully packaged and hand made, FLEA mics have become the microphone of choice for discerning engineers, producers and musicians worldwide.

Flea 47 Tube Mic Set

The Flea 47 Tube Mic is an exact replica of the U47. It is equipped with F7 capsule – our exact replica of M7 capsule, our replica of transformer and TELEFUNKEN EF14 tube. In fact, this is the same tube with different heating. We consider its sound character as closest to original.

Those of you who have knowledge of prices know that the price of a good VF14 tube can reach €1,500, so it is obvious that this mic is not a cheap thing. But the Flea 47 mic is possible to use for almost everything and always sounds perfect. Of course, there are a few exceptions, but only a fool would position this mic 5 cm from the kick-drumhead of a heavy metal drummer.

Price includes Flea 47 microphone, wooden microphone box, PSU and cables.
