The Ak-47 is described by Telefunken Elektroakustic as a mix between the historic M49 and U47 / U48 microphones, and this is quite accurate. It has a very smooth low end and a nice presence without sounding overly bright. The AK-47 features a proprietary circuit designed around a NOS EF-732 / 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 EF-732 / 5840W tube is very similar to the legendary AC-701 tube, and this along with the transformer creates the classic character that can make this mic so appealing in many circumstances. It utilizes a dual sided large diaphragm TK67D capsule, which is tested by Telefunken rigorously in their laboratory in Windsor, Ct. before implementation. It is hard to find the same natural mid-range and overall classic character with mics in this price range. The mic can really work well with male vocals, acoustic guitar, and even an electric guitar for an old school vibe.Questions? We're here to help! Call toll free 1-844-MUSIC-ZOO (1-844-687-4296).
