    A vacuum tube condenser mic that delivers fantastic sonic qualities and comes equipped with a power supply/preamp box.

    A recording microphone with classic tube sound
    The sound of tube mics is undeniably rich and smooth. At the heart of each of these Behringer T-47 mics is a hand-selected 12AX7 tube, which has been specifically designed to give these microphones their incredible sonic character. One advantage tube condensers have over their solid-state counterparts is that they are not subject to the rapid rise of odd-order harmonics, which the ear perceives as highly unmusical. Even when subjected to high sound pressure levels, the T-47 condenser microphone reacts in much the same way the human ear does.

    Cardioid polar pattern
    T-47 tube condenser mics feature a tight cardioid (heart-shaped) sound-reception pattern, which reduces the pickup of sound from the sides and rear for improved source isolation. The included custom shock mount fits all standard microphone stands and provides further isolation from external sources of vibration, such as sounds transmitted through floor joists and outside traffic.

    Dedicated power supply
    The included Behringer PSU-T power supply/preamp provides the supply voltage for the tube preamplifier and houses a Low Cut switch that can be used to reduce the low frequency response, if so desired. The included 7-pin multi-core cable supplies power to the mic and routes the audio signal to the XLR socket on the PSU-T.

    The ultimate recording mic
    Since the early days of recording, sound engineers have been searching for the best-sounding mics for recording acoustic instruments and the human voice. The resounding choice of professional recordists around the globe has been the tube condenser microphone because nothing compares to a sound that's so open, warm, and full of character. Unfortunately, tube mics can wipe out a home-recording budget faster than you can say "phantom power supply." But with the T-47, anyone who can afford a decent live microphone can have a studio-grade, tube-powered condenser mic for about the same price.

    The T-47's sensitive side
    Another advantage of tube mics is that they typically outperform transistor designs when it comes to subtle signal levels, such as environmental ambiance. The T-47 picks up every nuance of your performance, capturing an openly transparent slice of time and space with just the right amount of tube warmth. Now you'll be able to justify that new set of strings for your acoustic guitar (because you'll hear the difference), and you'll marvel at the sparkling highlights coming off your wind chimes.

    • Professional, large-diaphragm, tube condenser microphone for unsurpassed audio quality
    • Hand-selected 12AX7 vacuum tube for exceptional warmth and vintage sound

          Comments about Behringer T-47 Tube Condenser Mic:

          Very impressed overall with this mic. Warm sound and smooth but still crisp high end as well. You can get some great versatility by moving the mic around in front of the source. This I imagine solely due to the cardiod pattern. Imncredible on vocals, both male and female and also great on stringed instruments. I plan on picking up another. Very pleased!

            Comments about Behringer T-47 Tube Condenser Mic:

            I'm not a professional recording engineer, but I am a professional musician... I make my living with music. While I may not know everything there is to know about microphone placement techniques, I do believe I know good sound and this microphone has it. If you're on a budget and need a large diaphram condenser, I suggest checking out the Behringer T-47. Just sounds good!

            TheT47 is a Great Tube Condender

            Comments about Behringer T-47 Tube Condenser Mic:

            Let me start by saing that I'm a recording musician for many years and recognize a good sounding product. I had a chance to A/B the Behringer T47 against the Neumann TLM49, Rode NTK, Audio Technica AT4047, and Neumann TLM103. These mics,were all used with a pop filter, all connected to an Avalon VT737 EQ set flat, minimum compression about 2:1 going into a Roland VS1880 24bit Hard Disc Recorder set flat. All takes were played back flat. 1st off I'd like to say that I don't understand one of the other reviewers stating the T47 has no top end. This was certainly not at all my observation. The T47 has a very nice smoothe top end somewhere peaking at 12khz and sounded very sweet. The frequency curve is flat in the mids and then begins to rise around 6 khz znd starts to drop at 12khz. Honestly The T47 came out alot smoother and balanced than all the mics I tested when recording male and female vocal takes. The T47 sounded better than the whole bunch - It was full enough ,bright enough and really sounded great [played back with flat EQ . The TLM49 sounded thin , not much bottom because of it's capsule design (frequency rolloff below 1 khz) and a little blah on the top end. The Rode NTK sounded tinny with it's overly large 6 khz and 12 khz bumps - it was rather shrill and had too much sibillance without much lows. The Audio Technica At4047 sounded kind of too thick on the bottom even with the 80hz rolloff engaged. It was acceptable but nothing to be too excited about. The Neumann TLM103 sounded nasal in the mids and there was also noticeable sibillance. All these mics were recorded and played back flat and the T47 came out on top for overall quality of sound. When I EQ'd all the Mics on playback the T47 still sounded best. It had a nice sizzle at the top like much more expensive tube mics have, and a nice balanced low end. I didn't mention that in the seesions I utilized the roll-off on the T47. I'm quite frankly very surprised at the outcome. I have to say that Behringer really has come up with a GREAT PRODUCT. It seems to be built solidly. I rated everything a 5 except for the "Features" which I gave a 4.5 because there's no pad. At this price the mic is a steal even without a pad. I think the little window in front of the T47 which displays the heater of the 12AX7 is cool. I know there are some that have put it down saying it's tacky etc. Let's face it , if Neumann did it we'd all be saying how novel an idea it is. It's time to start listening to some of these brands we have all put down in the past and give credit where it's deserved. The T47 is a mic I will gladly enjoy using and deserves the truth to be told about it, that it is an outstanding sounding tube mic ! KUDO's TO YOU BEHRINGER, I'M IMPRESSED AND SURPRISED !!!

            Comments about Behringer T-47 Tube Condenser Mic:

            Mic sounds great . Of course it's not a Neumann U 47 wich i think is what they are going for here . Great sparkle tone , more frequency than the Shure sm58 , wich is a great mic ! Did have a problem with the tube heating up and humming badly but new tube solved that problem . Came with a mic case ,30 ft chord , power supply ,mic holder shock mount and filter . Responds to differant tubes but i prefer lower gain lower out put 12ax7 , for this as some tubes make it too bassy and midrangy .
