Our kit is a perfect clone of the legendary Vintage Neumann U47 FET microphone ✅ the standard for years in the recording industry and studios around the world. You have the choice in the options, either in DIY it’s you the builder or already assembled by Mic&Mod and ready to play!
With our Premium K47 capsule according to the original specifications, the sound of our kit is faithful to the best microphone found in the world’s largest studios.
Capture the punchy sound, power and dynamics with facility!
Our U47 Fet clone is a faithful version of the original from the 70’s before the re-release of the brand’s model. This is the FET version of the famous U47 tube microphone!
Circuit delivers fast and detailed response
Our U47 FET version uses a premium and efficient detailed circuit, coupled with the K47 capsule, in dual-diaphragm with a cardioid pickup pattern. This capsule is known for its excellent dynamic response and wide frequency range. It’s just enough to enhance the sense of air and presence in your recordings, and the wide-ranging response gives you a vibrant sound that holds up extremely well to equalizing and compression.
Our design uses a high quality 2N3819 FET as the model of that time, a -10 dB pad and a low cut filter, which will be the best tool for your loud sounding recordings like drum kicks!
We also thought about mobility with the design of a quality aluminum case, ideal for your outdoor recordings or simply to preserve your microphone!
All components are carefully matched and selected in our workshop. We attach great importance to the precision of our circuits in order to be as accurate as possible compared to the original.

"I had a real one in my hands at one time, but I find the price of the original abusively expensive for a FET microphone, I built the Mic&Mod U47 Fet version in a few hours, and I am very satisfied with the result, the sound is clean, the design is beautiful, I can't wait to use it in studio recording"
"I had already bought at Mic&Mod the U47 Fet Renaissance version (designed by Atlantic Phonic) a few years ago, I didn't like too much the design with the leds, but the sound was good, with this one they correct all the flaws of the old one, I was able to compare it with a friend who has the real one, I think the clone is above!"
"J'ai eu la chance de pouvoir construire mon propre U47 Fet avec ce modèle, j'ai toujours voulu en avoir un mais impossible de débourser autant pour l'original, je le trouve vraiment super et je pense qu'on est loin des clones concurrents à modèle égal"
