Neumann U47 Fet, Wind shield and lead

20.04.2015
Thomann quoted a price lower than all the competition and I thought I needed to double check the item as I had thought that it would not be delivered from stock. My doubts were unfounded, the price was good, free delivery was within 5 working days and the microphone was carefully wrapped and protected. A neumann mike lead would have cost £85 so I was recommended a Fender at £9.31. The cable and plugs look robust and professional. Most pleased with Thomann's service - it seems to be a habit!

Just a mega-horny microphone .....

01.03.2016
That the new U 47 is an incredibly good large membrane micro, that one knows from the many tests and that is also expected for the price. But would I - in my environment and in my setting - also a difference to other very good mics hear? I was already curious. It was clear to me that the U 47 is primarily used for singing and speech. My application is a classical guitar in a homestudio, so not a completely sound-optimized room. I go with the signal into a RME Fireface UFX and tested the U 47 fet against a Brauner Phantom Classic and a Neumann TLM 102. Against the latter only for interest that here clear differences were clear. The result convinced me. The U 47 sounds very detailed, very direct, with a warm basic character. The Brauner sounds somewhat brighter, not so warm, but also very good. The TLM 102 falls clearly, clearly more dull and undifferentiated (was clear). Well, it is, as always, taste and this was just an application as a small instant test. But I've been fascinated by the U 47 fet, it's kind of magical about this sound. Whether you want to spend so much money or so much more than for other mics, everyone must decide for themselves ....
I have the U 47 fetched completely and packed, it is simply a mega-horny micro ...
