The transistorized successor of the U47, the Neumann U47 fet helped shape the sound of the 1970s, becoming an icon for that 70s sound. The U47 fet permitted the processing of very high sound pressure levels for the first time, allowing positioning directly in front of loud amps. Due to this feature, and the capsule sound derived from its famous tube-based predecessor, the U47 fet contributed to many legendary recordings of the time.
In terms of technical design, the U47 fet is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with a cardioid directional characteristic and fet 80 circuit technology. This technology, also used in the U 87, is characterized by a wide dynamic range. Like its predecessor, the U47, the U47 fet employs the K 47 capsule which features a slight boost in the frequency response above 2 kHz. If required, a switchable low-cut filter raises the lower cutoff frequency electronically from 40Hz to 140 Hz, and switchable attenuation can reduce transmission levels by 10 dB. In addition, to prevent overloading of the connected preamp, the output signal can be reduced by 6 dB via a switch on the bottom of the microphone.
