Peluso 2247 Switchable Pattern Tube Microphone  From Peluso

Switchable Pattern Tube Microphone (9 Patterns) with a vintage tone

Peluso Microphones

What We Think

We like to call this one the Peluso "short-body" 47. While this mic does not have quite the incredible detail and subtle warmth as his SE version (Peluso 2247 SE), Peluso has created an incredibly affordable tube microphone that captures a lot of the original coloration and sonic characteristics (nice round low-end and low-mids) that made the original Neumann U47 so famous.
If your budget can swing the Peluso 2247 SE, your money will be well spent. If it can't, you'll be hard pressed to find a better rendition of the 47 that is even remotely as well priced as this little guy. For under $1,600, this is a microphone that will add a color that most project studios have never before been able to afford.

Building a Mix Using Peluso Microphones - Part 1: Drums (22 47 SE, P-67, P-84)

The Peluso line of custom vacuum tube condenser, solid-state condenser and ribbon microphones brings the very best in vintage sound to new life. In the first video of our Peluso series, SoundPure Recording Engineer, Allen Palmer, selects just a few of John Peluso’s great selection of mics, for a simple drum recording. With the 22 47 SE on the kick, a P-67 on snare, and a pair of P-84s on overheads, provide a complete and full drum sound.
