NEUMANN U47 AND U87 RESTORATION – AMAZING CLARITY

Neumann U47 Mic Repair

The U47 had been unsuccessfully attempted to be converted to a FET version which ended up rendering it useless by some technician.

We restored it back to a tube type with a high gain triode as close to the original tube (obsolete) as we could get and replaced the damaged capsule with a premium grade Japanese capsule.

 

The client is absolutely raving about the quietness and performance of the microphone.

Here is a sample he sent of him singing.

 

It is remarkable how clear it is.

The U87 mics were rescued from someone trying to unscrew the head which is not the way to open them.

The phenolic bases were destroyed and had to be rebuilt like a tooth filling cured with UV light.

New pins were molded in place where needed and they are fully functional with safety screws mounted in the head clamps so they can never be twisted again.
