Since the early days of recording, sound engineers have been searching for the best-sounding mics for recording acoustic instruments and the human voice. The resounding choice of professional recordists around the globe has been the tube condenser microphone. Why? Because nothing compares to the sound captured by a good tube condenser microphone — so open, warm and full of character.
But tube mics can wipe out a home-recording budget faster than you can say “phantom power supply.” That’s why we’re so very proud to present our new T-47 microphone. This mic exemplifies Behringer's commitment to quality and value — now anyone who can afford a decent live microphone can have a studio-grade, tube-powered condenser mic for about the same price.
The sound of tubes is undeniably rich and smooth. At the heart of each of these mics is a hand-selected 12AX7 tube, which has been specifically designed to give these microphones their incredible sonic character. One advantage tube condensers have over their solid-state counterparts is they are not subject to the rapid rise of odd-order harmonics, which the ear perceives as highly unmusical. Even when subjected to high sound pressure levels, the T-47 mics react in much the same way the human ear does.
