For Gear Heads:
The Peluso 2247 is a large diaphragm condenser microphone styled after the legendary "Neumann U-47". The Peluso 2247 is equipped with a glass triode tube. In the 1970's German radio modified the original U-47 incorporating this glass style tube to conform to broadcast standards. This tube helps the 2247 achieve its high gain and low noise floor. Our tubes are thoroughly tested and fully covered by our 3-year warranty. Professional engineers enjoy great success with the 2247 for a wide range of applications. The 2247 is know for its smooth sound, high gain and low noise floor. There are countless applications for this versatile microphone.
Peluso 2247 is paired with the Peluso MX-56 power supply. The dual sided capsule in the 2247 enable the power supply to feature 9 polar patterns in an array from omni-directional to cardioid to figure eight.

All of the microphones in our 2247 line are styled after the vintage Neumann U-47. This legendary microphone, manufactured in the 1950s and 60s, was revered for its clear sound, smooth and warm mid range, balanced high end and great body. The U-47 was used extensively during the recordings of the Beatles music and has continued to be used in countless well-known recordings since. Neumann discontinued production of this model when Telefunken ceased production of its key component, the metal VF 14 tube. Our 2247 LE model is supplied with a German vintage tube from this era. We have worked for years to acquire a supply of these rare tubes. We are proud to offer a microphone with this true vintage tube. With our 2247 SE model we are able to offer the same sonic quality with an American style metal tube. These tubes are available to us in larger quantities. This allows us to provide the sonic qualities of a "47" microphone with a lower price. The only discernible difference in sound between these two models is a 2 dB quieter noise floor on the SE model. The Peluso 2247 model is based on a modification to the original U-47 for German Radio broadcast standards in the 1970s incorporating a glass triode tube. Carefully selected components, thorough testing, and attention to detail all come together making these some of our most popular microphones.
The Peluso 2247 Short Body Tube Microphone is styled after the classic "Neumann U47" Tube Microphone. The 2247 Short Body has a little less detail and top end compared to it's big brothers the 2247 SE and LE Model. It still has that huge, rich large "47" tone that work wonders on a ton of stuff.
There is no doubt that every recording geek out there would love to own a real Neumann U47. But the chances are due to age or even price sometimes that is not possible. The maintenance along with the price of a vintage microphone is not always ideal especially for the home or even commercial studio guys. Well along comes John Peluso and his decades of knowledge and experience with vintage mics. And along with John comes the 2247.This mic just screams NEW U47 out of the box. It’s got that classic U47 sound with a hint of top end smooth presence that shines through on a mix. Paired with a nice preamp you have got that sound we all know and love.
