The GA-47 MKII is not a product that is built in huge quantities on a big assembly line. It´s a product that is built by hand, fifty units at a time in a small workshop by a skilled and dedicated staff. It uses very high quality components all the way to achieve the goal of offering classic U-47 qualities.

About This Product:

This is a brand new Golden Age Project GA47 MKII Tube Condenser Microphone.

Product Details:
The Neumann U-47 microphone is one of the most highly revered and sought after microphones of all times. Being a true classic, the U-47 really needs no further presentation.

Due the high cost and low availability of vintage originals, especially ones in good condition, a number of manufacturers are producing U-47 clones. The selling price of the clones are covering a broad price span, several of them are sold at high price points.

Any manufacturer putting a U-47 clone on the market is bound to get the same question: "Does it sound like a U-47?"

My take is that this is the wrong question to ask, I would like to rephrase the question to: "Does it offer the classic qualities and advantages that a vintage U-47 in perfect condition do?"

The Neumann U-47 was produced between 1949 and 1965 meaning that the vintage original units are now very old and their performance do differ a lot depending on their condition. The different clones all have their specific sound character too. So, it's not easy to say which sound is "the right one". As always, not the least as microphones goes, it will ultimately be a matter of taste.

The Golden Age Premier GA-47 is the result of a lot of hard work and real world testing and the MKII version has been further refined. The end result is a microphone with a very sweet character that should appeal to a great number of users and a microphone that can be used for the most demanding recording tasks. It has proved itself to be a great all-rounder, this is not a "vocal-only″ microphone.
