format_quote Bruce Swedien was the "ear" behind the NU-47 and Martin Kantola the maker. This particular unit is one of the first mics he made and it is with the famed Telefunken VF14-tube, that later models don't have.

BRUCE SWEDIEN: "This is an extremely high quality, prototype Microphone designed and built by my good friend Martin Kantola, who hails from the Swedish speaking part of Finland. I first met Martin in 1992 in Helsinki, Finland, when I was doing a Master Class at the Sibelius Academy. Both Martin and I are fascinated by the Art of Microphone Design.

The basic concept behind the NU-47 was to make the most capable hyper-fidelity Microphone possible, designed expressly for the recording of featured Solo Sound Sources in modern music recording.

Of course, it's a fantastic vocal microphone. There have been very few NU-47's made. One was made for Icelandic singer Björk, who absolutely loves the sound of this incredible new microphone. She told us that, "It captures both the small and the big sounds that I make!"
