U47 Stereo Set


TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is proud to offer matched stereo sets of the U47 microphones.  Each system features a custom dual power supply capable of powering both microphones at one time, and a special locking flight case that will carry both sets of microphones, cables, wooden boxes, and the dual power supply.

In keeping with the long standing tradition, TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik have given a nod back to 1958 when both the U47 and U48 were offered in 3 unique packages. The U47 and U48 were both offered in what was called a “Stereo Set” that featured a sequentially serial numbered pair of U47 or U48 microphones with a dual [two microphone capable] power supply, and the “Studio Set,” which was a single U47 that was matched to a U48.

Stereo microphone techniques are often used for recording classical music and large signal sources like orchestra, choirs, and large chamber groups. They can also effectively be used on drum overheads, acoustic guitars, piano, and percussion.

The TELEFUNKEN U47 Stereo Set will allow versed recording engineers a variety of stereo recording techniques, including X/Y coincidental pairs when utilizing the mics in their cardioid patterns, or A/B spaced pairs while using the mics in either cardioid or omni.

Every component in each of the two TELEFUNKEN U47 microphones is hand-selected, allowing as close a match as is possible between each system. Capsules are tuned to each other; transformers and tube are tested for matched gain and frequency response. These sets offer the user the knowledge and comfort that the tools they are using will give identical responses for their most important stereo recording.


Each U47 Stereo Set comes complete with:

-M940S stereo power supply (made in USA)

-Two M840 25’ dual-shielded Somner tube microphone cables

-Two WB40 wooden microphone boxes

-FC40S locking flight case.
