parts (right:) Neumann U47
The kit includes:
The kit does NOT include:
All parts (apart from the tube socket and the 6-pin Tuchel connector) are unused, either original NOS or precise copies of the original part, hand-manufactured in a limited quantity only.
Great effort has been spent into development of
the kit and each individual part is completely
interchangeable with the original.
If you have access to an old Neumann U47 to compare: just remove the 3 screws at the top and 1 at the lower body. Take the top grille and body tube off the chassis and compare the microphone mechanics:
You will see that the only difference to the original is the missing "Neumann" batch on the outside body (for obvious legal reasons!) - and of course the fact that your original U47 will look old and used...!
Private users please note:
The kit can be used to restore original Neumann U47 back to absolute showroom condition. If you are considering to use the kit to build a fully authenticlooking new U47 reproduction, please be aware that extensive experience with tube microphones, in particular U47 and very good technical knowledge is essential to get reasonable results. If you even plan to build a fully authentic sounding U47, you really need to know what you are doing... Don't forget that there are some authentic looking U47 "clones" around, which however do not have the magic of the original. Please do not ask me for the "secrets"... I cannot "transfer" my 25 years experience with the kit...
Please understand that we cannot provide "how-to-build-a-U47"- instructions or complex technical information.
All parts are available as the complete kit only.
The mechanical kit is made to order and has a delivery time of about 4-6 weeks.
(Please note: Currently we are unable to take any new orders.)
