    Product Description

    The multi-pattern AK-47 MkII is a tube microphone with superior high frequency detail and a rich, full low-end response, suitable for vocals, guitar amps and drums. Sonically, the AK-47 MkII is a remarkably hi-fidelity microphone with a present but not harsh character, a forward mid-range, and a detailed low end response. Designed to take the punch of the heavy sound pressure level of a guitar amp or kick drum, it still has a delicate and intimate air that is usually found in more expensive microphones.

    Circuit Design
    The amplifier found in the AK-47 MkII features a new proprietary circuit designed around a NOS EF732 / 5840W vacuum tube, and a custom output transformer that is an exact replica of the historic BV8 transformer found in new TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik and vintage U47 and U48 microphones. The dual sided large diaphragm TK67D capsule undergoes rigorous testing in our laboratory prior to installation in the AK-47 MkII, and again during final testing and burn-in of the microphone.

    Construction
    The AK-47 MkII’s steel headgrille mesh and brass base ring are finished in a reflective chrome plating, giving the microphone a unique look and vibe. The aluminum body tube is finished in a black protective hard coat and is engraved with the microphone model name and serial number. A black and silver TELEFUNKEN diamond logo badge is featured on the front of the microphone. The power supply is also finished in a black protective coating.

    Accessories
    Each AK-47 MkII microphone comes complete with M 901 power supply, M 801 25’ dual-shielded TX-7 tube microphone cable, M701 elastic shockmount and wooden microphone box.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    There are some people who might feel $1850 is a lot of money to pay for a microphone. I have even seen people post about Aventone's CV-12 or the Rode K2 as cheaper, viable alternatives. Those people, simply put, have never felt the sheer JOY, as I have, of coming to end of a lifelong quest. I have been a singer for over 25 years, and a studio guy for even longer. And though I never thought it would happen to me, I am here today to tell you I have fallen in love again... With my voice! Have you ever recorded a new song that you just KNOW is gonna be the next Bohemian Rhapsody, and it ends up sitting on your hard drive for years? Because no matter how many times you take and re-take the vocals, even though you're using a good quality mic (I have been wrestling with an AKG C-214, which is no Radio Shack mic!), you just can't seem to SIT IN THE MIX?? For me at least, those days are over... My voice through the Telefunken AK-47 is the Sonic equivalent of sliding into a nice, warm bathtub filled with butter. It doesn't just sit in the mix, it LOVES it there! I don't need anything more than a little compression, and a little reverb, and I am home. With the C-214, (as well as a couple MXL's and various other large diaphragm condensers) I would be throwing chorus, eq, an "emonizer" and various other VBL and tube-modeled processors at my takes before I could get a sound. And these are all respectable mics which work very well for certain applications - I intend to keep them all. But I'm telling you, this is the next best thing to a vintage U-47 that I have ever used. My only problem is that NOW I gotta go back and re-record everything I have done in the past 5 years or so with the Telefunken! Actually, I'm looking forward to it! Dude, I'm telling you - if you can afford it, BUY IT!! It's all about the love...
