Vintage Neumann U47 vs Flea 47 Tube Microphones | Retrosonic Pro Audio
This is a Retrosonic Pro Audio demonstration video of two legendary vintage Neumann / Telefunken U47 tube microphones and their modern replicas by highly praised Flea microphones.

We had a great chance to test the differences and similarities of two vintage Telefunken / Neumann U47 tube microphones, one with original K47 capsule and another with original M7 capsule, and two brand new 47 replicas made by Flea microphones in Slovakia with corresponding F47 and F7 capsules.
