A highlight of the FLEA Vintage range is the flagship FLEA 47 Vintage, billed as being an exact replica of the famed Neumann U47, the first commercially available switchable-pattern cardioid / omni capacitor microphone, built around the coveted M7 capsule paired with a VF14 valve in the amplifier / impedance-convertor stage. As such the FLEA 47 Vintage comes complete with the F7 capsule, a replica of the M7, a replica of the BV8 transformer and Telefunken EF14, UF14, or VF14 tubes.

 

Fans of the sound of the M49 multi-pattern tube condenser microphone, but not necessarily seeking the original look, might consider turning to the FLEA 49 Next from the FLEA Next range - identical in sound with the same wiring and components but housed in a modern-looking casing, complete with a standard kit, lined wooden box, power supply, cable, and shock mount

 

Those preferring a more hands-on approach could always assemble one of several replica microphones using one of the company’s mechanical kits and parts.
