Behringer T-47 sounds undeniably rich and smooth. At the heart of the Behringer T47 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 reacts in much the same way the human ear does.
Another advantage is that tube mics typically outperform transistor designs when it comes to subtle signal levels, such as environmental ambience. Behringer T47 picks up every nuance of your performance, capturing an openly transparent slice of time and space - with just the right amount of tube warmth. Now you’ll be able to justify that new set of strings for your acoustic guitar (because you’ll hear the difference), and you’ll marvel at the sparkling highlights coming off your wind chimes.
Behringer T-47 features a tight cardioid (heart-shaped) pattern, which reduces the pickup of sound from the sides and rear for improved source isolation. The included custom shock mount fits all standard microphone stands and provides further isolation from external sources of vibration, such as sounds transmitted through floor joists, outside traffic, etc.
The included BEHRINGER PSU-T provides the supply voltage for the tube preamplifier and houses a LOW CUT switch that can be used to reduce the low frequency response, if so desired. The included 7-pin multi-core cable supplies power to the mic and routes the audio signal to the XLR socket on the PSU-T.
