Neumann M 147 Tube Condenser Microphone

The M 147 Tube brings back the classic sound of Neumann’s famous tube microphones of the 1950s. The M 147 tube is a cardioid microphone using the same large diaphragm capsule as the legendary U 47 but combines it with an innovative tube circuit for lowest noise. It's transformerless output stage ensures superb performance at an attractive price.

The M 147’s unique sound character with unsurpassed presence and a distinctive midrange focus is ideally suited for vocals, both male and female, as well as speech applications such as voice-over and film dubbing. The M 147 is also an excellent spot mic for any solo instruments. Unlike many other tube microphones, the M 147 can be used for quiet sources, due to its exceptionally low self-noise of only 12 dB-A. Although its max SPL figure of 114 dB appears low, the M 147 works well with louder sources, too, as distortion rises very slowly to 5% THD for 134 dB SPL. This behaviour is intentional: The M 147 creates a sense of elevated loudness by means soft saturation – just like in the days of analog recording.
