【Inter BEE 2013 TV】Electori showcases four models of Peluso microphones styled after the Neumann U-47, with varying sounds produced by vintage, metal, and glass triode vacuum tubes
Electori exhibited four models of vacuum tube microphones manufactured by U.S. company, Peluso, which they began distributing in June. Peluso is a family-run business headquartered in Virginia, U.S.A. They have manufactured and sold vacuum tube and solid state microphones since their establishment in 2002. The four vacuum tube microphones on display this year were the 22 47, 22 47 LE, 22 47 SE, and P-67 models, each employing different kinds of vacuum tubes to produce their own unique sounds.
The Peluso 22 47, 22 47 LE, and 22 47 SE constitute a series of vacuum tube condenser microphones styled after the legendary Neumann U-47 that was manufactured in the 1950’s and 60’s.
The 22 47 LE is made with a German-made vintage steel tube, while the 22 47 SE employs an American-made steel tube. Components were carefully selected for the 22 47 to achieve a sonic quality similar to the U-47, which used the glass triode tube that became the standard for radio broadcasting in the 1970’s.
Pricing - 22 47 LE: ¥336,000; 22 47 SE: ¥257,250; 22 47: ¥199,500 (all tax included)
