U-48 Microphones

According to the book Recording The Beatles, the U48 was one of George Martin's favorite microphones when actually "recording The Beatles". Utilizing the same M7 capsule, BV8 output transformer and VF14K vacuum tube as TELEFUNKEN’s historic reissue of the U47, the U48 features cardioid and bidirectional capsule capabilities (instead of the cardioid and omnidirectional found in the U47). Its authoritative mid-range and extended low-end response have made the TELEFUNKEN U48 an excellent tool for recording vocals and acoustic instruments, both near and far.
