22 47 Standard Edition Tube Microphone

The Peluso 22 47 SE is a large diaphragm condenser microphone styled after the legendary "Neumann U-47". To achieve the distinctive "47" sound we have found the 6SJ7 American style steel tube provides the same sonic quality as the VF14. With nearly identical specifications, the only discernable difference between these two tubes is a 2dB quieter noise floor on the 5693/6SJ7. These tubes are thoroughly tested and fully covered by our 3-year warranty. This American style tube is readily available and allows us to offer the Peluso 22 47 Standard Edition at a very competitive price. Professional engineers enjoy great success with the 22 47 SE for a wide range of applications from male and female vocals, acoustic guitar to tenor sax. There are countless applications for this versatile microphone. Known for its clear sound while capturing the low frequency nuances of the original U-47 with smooth mid range and balanced high end. Engineers will be proud to have a hand built microphone with the sound of a genuine U-47.

The 22 47 SE is paired with the Peluso MX-56 power supply. The dual sided capsule in the 22 47 SE enable the power supply to feature 9 polar patterns in an array from omni-directional to cardioid to figure eight.

The 22 47 SE features our heavy-duty 8-pin screw on cable connector. The large diameter pins in the screw on connector give a tight and secure cable connection designed to perform for a lifetime of use.

Acoustically matched pairs available upon special request.

Microphone kit comes as a complete system including: 22 47 SE Microphone in a Wood Box, Power Supply, New-style 8-Pin Screw on Cable Assembly, and a Shock Mount all packed in a Flight Case.

Comparing the 22 47, 22 47 LE and 22 47 SE:

All of the microphones in our 22 47 line are styled after the vintage Neumann U-47. This legendary microphone, manufactured in the 1950s and 60s, was revered for its clear sound, smooth and warm mid range, balanced high end and great body. The U-47 was used extensively during the recordings of the Beatles music and has continued to be used in countless well-known recordings since. Neumann discontinued production of this model when Telefunken ceased production of its key component, the metal VF 14 tube. Our 22 47 LE model is supplied with a German vintage tube from this era. We have worked for years to acquire a supply of these rare tubes. We are proud to offer a microphone with this true vintage tube. With our 22 47 SE model we are able to offer the same sonic quality with an American style metal tube. These tubes are available to us in larger quantities. This allows us to provide the sonic qualities of a "47" microphone with a lower price. The only discernible difference in sound between these two models is a 2 dB quieter noise floor on the SE model. The Peluso 22 47 model is based on a modification to the original U-47 for German Radio broadcast standards in the 1970s incorporating a glass triode tube. Carefully selected components, thorough testing, and attention to detail all come together making these some of our most popular microphones.

Reviews & Demos

'Using the 22 47SE was rewarding. It sounds just like the world's best U47, but without the unpredictable nature of those old mics. I found it could take hotter vocal levels with less distortion than an old U47 and, at the same time, exhibit a lower noise floor.
The Peluso 22 47SE is a kind of time machine--it transports and makes available to today's vocalists the big, impressive sound of the world's most famous and revered microphone, the Neumann U47.'

- Barry Rudolph, MIX Magazine


 

'While Recording Old Yellow Moon The 22 47 SE's were used constantly on the drums, from Glyn John's classic spread to tom closeups, always modifying the patterns. They seem to like cymbals!'
With Peluso 22 47 SE Microphone, using the Remote Pattern Selection with proximity changes there is nothing we can't do with these beautifully made Microphones. The noise floor has been greatly reduced from that of my old Neumann, which I can now stand down to the speculation vault.
