The M147 Tube is a vacuum tube condenser microphone with cardioid characteristic. At the heart of this microphone is the K47 dual diaphragm capsule, inherited from this model's now legendary predecessors, the U47 and the M49.

Following the capsule is a tube that functions as an impedance converter. The next stage is an efficient, transformerless output circuit, that guarantees an extremely low self-noise level.

The M147 Tube can feed extremely long microphone cables without affecting the quality of the audio signal. Like all Neumann tube microphones, the M147 Tube comes with an elegant satin nickel finish. The microphone is delivered as a complete set in a high-quality aluminum case. Included with the microphone are a microphone cable, a metal swivel mount for a mic stand, and a compact universal power supply for standard mains sockets.
