Peluso 2247 LE TELEFUNKEN TUBE Switchable Pattern Tube Microphone
Switchable Pattern Tube Microphone (9 Patterns) based off the Legendary U 47
What we think:
John Peluso has somehow managed to put a vintage German EF14 Telefunken tube in a mic that is under $3,000. This very well may be the greatest value of any large diaphragm tube microphone on the market today. One studio has even put their original top-shelf U47 in the cabinet.
This mic is modeled similar to the U47 and boasts excellent high end. It takes the U47 to the next level. If you are looking to add a truly exceptional top shelf tube microphone to your collection, look no further. For this amount of money, there just isn't a better deal, period. At this price, there is no reason every studio with money for a new mic shouldn't pick one of these up.
Keep in mind that these mics are made from a real, vintage, new-old stock EF14 tube. That means when he can't get the tubes any more, he will only have the American Tube substitution available. At this price point, this thing is an absolute steal - pick one up while you can!
