Neumann U 47 FET Collector's Edition Condenser Microphone
The U 47 FET is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with a cardioid directional characteristic and FET 80 circuit technology. This technology, also used in the U 87, is characterized by a wide dynamic range. Like its predecessor, the U 47, the U 47 FET employs the K 47 capsule which features a slight boost in the frequency response 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.
