    Classic Telefunken condenser tone.

    Classic Telefunken microphones are known for their exceptionally clean and warm tone, substantial gain, and beautifully detailed acoustic reproduction—the RFT AK47 is no exception. Using standardized microphone parts from overseas, NOS tubes, and a combination of high-quality components made in the United States, Telefunken USA's large-diaphragm condenser microphone is a low-cost alternative to the Telefunken microphones that have gained such popularity among today's top producers, engineers, and musicians.

    In the spirit of the famous U47 and M49 microphones, the RFT AK47 features an updated circuit design based on a custom B47 transformer handmade in the United States by TAB Funkenwerk; a dual-sided, 6-micron gold-sputtered capsule; a custom 10-meter Gotham Audio cable; a remote 9-polar pattern external power supply; a New Old Stock Telefunken EF732 sub miniature tube; and a fully transferrable 5-year Telefunken warranty.

    Absolutely the best microphone in its price range

    By Andy-hHqK1

    from Portland, OR

    What can I say, its a Telefunken! You will not find another tube microphone in this price range that rivals the quality of the AK47. Smokey, ear-pleasing, vintage-sounding. This mic just produces a beautiful sound.
