V-47 Tube Microphone
The V47 is our custom-built tube microphone, handmade in California using premium parts. (The circuit was updated and upgraded in early 2022.)
- Solid brass, 34mm, single-backplate K47 capsule
- Vintage tone
- 9 polar patterns
- Elastic shockmount
- Power supply
- Robust flightcase
The capsule is our K47 recreation, the RK-47. The tube is a low-noise, selected 6072a type from Russia. The circuit is a modernized, low-noise and high headroom version of a vintage tube mic circuit design. We build these to order in our California shop with handpicked, audiophile-grade parts including a custom US-made transformer.
Quantities are limited.
The V-47 is available in a painted black finish with antiqued brass MP logo badge.
We have a limited supply of silver powdercoated mic bodies. Please be aware that the powdercoating process occasionally leaves tiny imperfections in the surface finish.
Power supply options
This microphone includes our standard power supply. It is an imported, zener-regulated supply that is comparable to what you would get with most any commercial tube mic under $1000.
As an alternative, we offer a custom, US-made premium tube mic power supply. These are handbuilt in California. To upgrade your V-47 to this premium PSU, order it here and choose the "upgrade bundle" option for discounted pricing. Note - the upgrade bundle pricing is only available if the PSU is ordered in the same shopping cart as the V-47 microphone.
This microphone includes an IEC power cord for US wall outlets. We can ship this kit anywhere in the world; the PSU (both models) has a 115V/230V switch. Non-US customers will have to source their own IEC power cord.
These microphones are built to order in our US headquarters. Allow 3-5 business days for assembly, testing, burn-in, and final QC. Click here for the latest news about custom mic ordering times.
