The Telefunken AK47 MKII microphone is part of the TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik R-F-T series. The R-F-T line of tube condenser microphones utilizes American designed electronics in conjunction with New Old Stock tubes and standardized parts from overseas manufacturers. This provides for lower cost alternative to more expensive microphone systems, without sacrificing the qualities that you would expect from a TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik microphone.


Sonically, the R-F-T AK-47 MKII is a remarkably hi-fidelity microphone with a "present" but not "harsh" character, which in many ways is reminiscent of a cross between the historic M-49 and U-47/48 microphones. The result is a microphone with superior high frequency detail, a rich and thunderous low end, without the upper mid-range frequency bump often found in microphones in this price range. Instead, it has a delicate and intimate "air" that is usually found only in microphones three times the price.

Key features:

  • Frequency range: 20Hz - 20kHz
  • Polar pattern: Omni, Cardioid, Figure 8 with 6 intermediate stages
  • TK47 dual sided gold sputtered large diaphragm capsule
  • Amplifier features a new proprietary circuit designed around a NOS TELEFUNKEN EF-732 tube and a custom output transformer that is an exact replica of the historic BV8 transformer found in the U-47 and U-48 microphones.
  • TELEFUNKEN EF-732 tube is very similar to the AC-701 tube in that is provides a "velvety" character to the overall tone of the microphone.
  • Layout of the circuit board features broader traces for superior current on demand capability (which enhances the low frequency and transient response capability of the amplifier) as well as a layout, which minimizes noise and cross talk between components
  • Dedicated power supply
  • Extras: modern power supply, shock mount, wooden box
