    THE U 47 fet IS BACK

    An icon of the1970s era, the U 47 fet with its unmistakable sound, is now available again. For the new "Collectors Edition U 47 fet", Neumann has resumed production of this classic mic, according to the original production documents and schematics.

    The U 47 fet was first manufactured from 1972 to 1986, and since then has been firmly established in the range of microphones used by many well-known studios. In addition to serving as a soloist microphone, it has become legendary especially for the recording of bass-heavy instruments and for the direct miking of loud amps.

    The U 47 fet Collectors Edition is a new edition of this classic, issued in the year 2014. For this, Neumann has resumed production of this classic mic, according to the original production documents and schematics. It is supplied with a high-quality wooden case with sophisticated special packaging, and an individual certificate with the serial number of the microphone.

    In terms of technical design, the U 47 fet is a condenser microphone with a cardioid directional characteristic and fet 80 circuit technology. Among other things this technology, also used in the U 87, is characterized particularly by a wide dynamic range. The K 47, already employed in the U 47, is a double large-diaphragm capsule with a slight boost in the range above 2 kHz.

    If required, a switchable low-cut filter raises the lower cutoff frequency electronically from 40 Hz to 140 Hz, and switchable attenuation can reduce transmission levels by 10 dB. In addition, to prevent overloading of the connected preamp, the output signal can be reduced by 6 dB via a switch on the bottom of the microphone.

    This relaunch offers the opportunity of combining history-making technologies side by side to create new realms of sound: Just as a smartphone provides almost unlimited possibilities, digital audio technology can offer endless creative options - with the U 47 fet conferring its own signature sound.

    The list of renowned artists who have created musical masterpieces with the sound of the U 47 fet - including AC/DC, Kate Bush, Bruce Springsteen, and later R.E.M, the Pretenders, a-ha, Dire Straits, Metallica, Michael Bubl‚ and many others - will now grow longer ...
