Neumann M 147 Tube Cardioid Condenser Microphone

The Neumann M 147 Tube is a cardioid side-addressed condenser microphone with a K 47 dual diaphragm capsule. The K 47 capsule design was inspired by Neumann’s legendary U 47 and M 49 microphones. Whilst the microphone has a cardioid polar pattern, it becomes more directional when capturing higher frequencies - similar to the performance of a U 47. The M 147 Tube excels on vocals with it’s microscopic detail and beautiful warmth. The M 147 Tube combines a transformerless output - guaranteeing extremely low self noise, and the warmth of Neumann’s valve technology. The M 147 Tube comes with the KT 8 aluminium protective case, SG-2 microphone clip and the N 149 A tube power supply.

The M 147 ships with the SG-2 mic-clip NOT the shock mount depicted on the Neumann website.
Neumann shock mounts for the M 147 can be purchased separately.

    • Neumann M 147 Tube PRODUCT FEATURES:
