One of the Most-recorded Mics in History

The Neumann U47 FET Collector's Edition brings the epic sound of one of the most recorded microphones in history into your studio. Neumann went back to the schematics and production notes from the original U47 FET to bring you the wide dynamic range, detailed sound, and fast transient response of the original. Experienced engineers at Sweetwater will confirm the U47 FET lets you record kick drum tracks with amazing power and punch, track vocals with exceptional articulation and detail, and capture the full dynamic range of delicate acoustic instruments. Complete with a Collector's Edition box and a Certificate of Authenticity, you'll be adding a legendary microphone to your studio's toolbox with the Neumann U47 FET Collector's Edition condenser microphone.

FET circuit delivers fast, detailed response

Compared to tube-based microphones, solid-state microphones like the U47 FET are known for their resistance to distortion and detailed sound. These are the reasons the original U47 FET was so popular on kick drums and other percussion instruments, capturing their power and intensity with amazing fidelity. Don't let its most popular use fool you though - the U47 FET Collector's Edition is ready to be your go-to choice for acoustic instruments, and should be on your short list of mics to audition with every vocalist you record.

In order to recreate the sound of the original U 47 FET, Neumann has built the U 47 FET using the original production schematics. The U 47 FET uses FET 80 circuitry—the same technology found in the famous U 87—to achieve a particularly wide dynamic range, making it the perfect solution for miking loud sources.

The U 47 FET is also equipped with the K 47 double large-diaphragm capsule, which was used in the original tube version of the U 47. This color capsule provides an even, balanced tone with a slight boost above 2 kHz that makes the midrange of any instrument sing.

  • Fast transient response is perfect for drums and other percussion
  • Wide frequency response captures bass instruments with outstanding power, punch, and focus
  • Created using original U47 FET schematics and production notes to bring you the real deal
  • High-quality Collector's Edition wood box and Certificate of Authenticity included
