The Mini K47 captures the tone of a vintage microphone, with modern performance specifications. It is a small microphone with outsized tone. It has been widely praised by Tape Op, Recording Magazine, Tone Report Weekly, guitar monster Doug Doppler, producer/engineer Rob Schnapf, and hundreds of home studio owners.
“K47” refers to the capsule design. The capsule in this microphone is modeled after the one in the most famous microphone of all time. It provides a full, balanced tone without any harshness or hype in the upper frequencies. It will record less sibilance and fewer mouth sounds on your next vocal track. It will add weight and body to high strings and electric guitars. It will reduce the jangle in strummed acoustic tracks.
For this microphone, we chose a very clean and transparent circuit design. It lets the sound of the capsule pass through without alteration. Self-noise and distortion performance are on par with microphones costing significantly more. The circuit incorporates the best tricks we’ve learned from modifying and upgrading other companies’ products.
To ensure that every Mini K47 microphone delivers superior performance out of the box, we test them extensively prior to shipping: for polarity, noise, frequency response, and sensitivity. We listen to every microphone before it leaves our facility.
The Mini K47 ships with a swivel mount and padded storage pouch. As of May 1, 2016, the Mini K47 also includes an elastic shockmount as a free upgrade.
