Peluso 2247 SE AMERICAN Switchable Pattern Tube Microphone
Switchable Pattern Tube Microphone (9 Patterns) based off the Legendary U 48.
What we think:
With the number of sales and positive feedback we've seen, we consider the 2247 SE to be the flagship microphone of the entire Peluso line. Modelled after the vintage U47, this mic has the sound that a 47 would in the '50s and '60s. You can expect the big, warm color and detail of its vintage counterpart, but at a better price and without the 40+ years of wear and tear. Typically thought of as a vocal mic, this is actually a great workhorse mic that can be used on any instrument and in any situation where you want that round, vintage colored sound that you know and love. The SE is essentially the same as the 2247 LE, but with a lower noise floor and better price due to the readily replaceable tube. If you're in the market for vintage sound, contact us today for a demo to find out why this is our favorite vintage mic replica.
The Peluso 22 47 SE is a large diaphragm condenser microphone styled after the legendary "Neumann U-47". To achieve the distinctive "47" sound we have found the 6SJ7 American style steel tube provides the same sonic quality as the VF14. With nearly identical specifications, the only discernable difference between these two tubes is a 2dB quieter noise floor on the 5693/6SJ7. These tubes are thoroughly tested and fully covered by our 3-year warranty. This American style tube is readily available and allows us to offer the Peluso 22 47 Standard Edition at a very competitive price.
Professional engineers enjoy great success with the 22 47 SE for a wide range of applications from male and female vocals, acoustic guitar to tenor sax. There are countless applications for this versatile microphone. It is known for its clear sound, and it captures the low frequency nuances of the original U-47 with smooth mid range and balanced high end. Engineers will be proud to have a hand built microphone with the sound of a genuine U-47.
The 22 47 SE is paired with the Peluso MX-56 power supply. The dual sided capsule in the 22 47 SE enable the power supply to feature 9 polar patterns in an array from omni-directional to cardioid to figure eight.
The 22 47 SE features our heavy-duty 8-pin screw on cable connector. The large diameter pins in the screw on connector give a tight and secure cable connection designed to perform for a lifetime of use.
Acoustically matched pairs available upon special request.
