      Neumann U 47 FET

      he U 47 fet is an essential contributor to the 1960s and 1970s. As a secret weapon for recording producers eager to experiment, it was not only a top microphone for soloists, but also decisively affected the spatial dimension of the sound and the tonal depth of countless productions.

    • Neumann U 64

      Neumann U 64

      The Neumann U 64 miniature condenser micro­phone differs from the well-known standard range of miniature micro­phones in the shape of the micro­phone head. The directional characteristic is cardioid. Special features of this micro­phone are the independence of the directional characteristic from frequency and a response ex­tend­ed to the high-frequency end. The miniature construction makes it par­tic­u­lar­ly suitable for unobtrusive use in film and television studios.

    • Neumann U 67 Tube

      Neumann U 67 Tube

      The Neumann U 67 is a multipattern large-diaphragm condenser microphone with a tube-and-transformer topology. It was introduced by Neumann in 1960 with the intention of replacing the U 47 in Neumann’s product line.

    • Neumann U 87

      Neumann U 87

      The Neumann U87 features 3 switchable polar patterns and has a -10dB pad. A very popular microphone.
