The Neumann U 47 is the granddaddy of large diaphragm condensers, with a justifiably legendary sound. Built around a World War II military radio tube with a capsule design from 1929, it became a benchmark mic in the early fifties. The U48 is essentially the same as the U47, except that it does cardioid and figure-of-eight patterns. The figure-eight capability of the U48 made it a favorite mic for recording the vocals of the Beatles.
