Comparing the 22 47, 22 47 LE and 22 47 SE:

All of the microphones in Peluso's 22 47 line are styled after the vintage Neumann U-47. This legendary microphone, manufactured in the 1950s and 60s, was revered for its clear sound, smooth and warm mid range, balanced high end and great body. The U-47 was used extensively during the recordings of the Beatles music and has continued to be used in countless well-known recordings since. Neumann discontinued production of this model when Telefunken ceased production of its key component, the metal VF 14 tube. Peluso's 22 47 LE model is supplied with a German vintage tube from this era. Peluso have worked for years to acquire a supply of these rare tubes and are proud to offer a microphone with this true vintage tube. With their 22 47 SE model Peluso are able to offer the same sonic quality with an American style metal tube, which are available in larger quantities. This allows Peluso to provide the sonic qualities of a "47" microphone with a lower price. The only discernible difference in sound between these two models is a 2 dB quieter noise floor on the SE model. The Peluso 22 47 model is based on a modification to the original U-47 for German Radio broadcast standards in the 1970s incorporating a glass triode tube. Carefully selected components, thorough testing, and attention to detail all come together making these some of our most popular microphones.
