What We Think

If you are looking for a mic with that big, fat, lush sound of a real vintage U47, this is it (without the vintage price tag, of course). A lot of other 47 clones out there are tuned to sound the way a vintage one would have sounded right off the assembly line, but the Pearlman TM-47 is much more similar to how a vintage 47 sounds now, after years of loosening up. This gives the mic a darker, more smooth and warm sound that melts into the mix like butter.
