FLEA 47 Next

You like the U47 sound and you are set up mainly for a cardioid "mood"?
Don't really need an omni?
This is the right place for you. The FLEA 47 NEXT sounds identical to the FLEA 47! Built with the same wiring and components as the FLEA 47.
Elimination of the omni pattern allowed us to make slightly different design.
Compared to the FLEA 47 design, the FLEA 47 NEXT - comes without a pattern selector, which is unnecessary due to the cardioid only modification, and a different microphone bottom connector. We used a 7pin Binder connector for the 47 Next.
The FLEA 47 NEXT is packaged with our full standard kit, lined wooden box, power supply, cable and shock mount.

    FLEA 49 Next

    Are you a fan of the great M49 sound? You don't mind that it's not the original look? After trying FLEA 49 NEXT you will fall in love with it.
    Identical sound to the FLEA 49, all the same components and the same wiring! The only difference is a great new look!
    The FLEA 49 NEXT is also packaged with our full standard kit, lined wooden box, power supply, cable and shock mount.

    FLEA 47 SUPERFET

    At the beginning of the FLEA 47/48 SUPERFET story we were trying to reach mainly one goal – to build the microphone with as similar sound character as the tube 47 version has but with all benefits of the FET technology, e.g. signal to noise ratio, a lower price ...
    The price is very important to make these microphones affordable for a wider range of users. It doesn't mean we build it cheap or we “impoverish” it somehow in quality. Construction is comparable with the most expensive microphones and we use old pure technologies like point to point soldering of all sensitive parts on a special base, output transformer with size and materials like in tube version, our F7 capsule skinned by skilled German technicians. All contacts and soldering pins are gold plated, output connector is made by reputable manufacturer – Neutrik. The passive components are meticulously selected and tested before they are used. The complete microphone is manually equipped and wired. The microphone heads are absolutely compatible with the FLEA 47, FLEA 48 or original U47/U48 microphones. The quality of the sound was always the priority to us, our microphones are long time tested in cooperation with famous sound engineers and musicians all over the world and only we were pretty sure the result is uncompromising we decided to open the door and revealed these babies.
    All measurements were verified by independent company to avoid any misleading information and results.
    When we look into the past, it's clear that the original U47 is the most wanted microphone ever in music industry. Sound of this microphone is amazing on almost everything – vocals, acoustic instruments ... Moreover, if you have a pair, you can realize A/B, X/Y, ORTF stereo techniques. FLEA 47 SUPERFET offers exactly the same, both cardioid and omni patterns. And having a pair of them opens the doors for all mentioned stereo techniques above.
    To keep your microphones safe, in standard packaging is our handmade oak wooden box for the microphone. The part of the standard package is also our heavy duty shockmount.

    The 48 is the gun. A lot of sound engineers are looking for the 48 because of its incredible sound on vocals or voiceovers in figure-8 pattern. A lot of them are willing to own all patterns to get a variable sound and to be able to experiment in studio. This unique sound of the 48 is historically proved by the famous studios like Abbey Road, Capitol, etc. And if you have a pair, the doors are open for Blumlein or M/S techniques.
    To keep your microphones safe, in standard packaging is our handmade oak wooden box for the microphone. The part of the standard package is also our heavy duty shockmount.
