Ever since trying my first ADK microphone back in 2010, I have been absolutely hooked! The Z-47 is an absolutely world-class handmade tube mic with a sound that is impeccable at a price that is untouchable!!!
ADK Z-47 is round and full-bodied and greatly tames raspy or sibilant sources. An homage to the classic U47 microphone, which has been used on countless albums over the last 65 years, the Z-47 more characterizes the tone of the K-7 Capsule, where its brother Mic the Z-49 characterizes an M-7 Capsule. The Z-47 is known for its smooth top-end and emphasis on chest tones. Our Golden-Ears chose the Sowter transformer to pair with this capsule.
We lined Randy Travis in front of our four Vintage Flavors, he pointed to the Z-47 and said “That’s a Man’s Microphone!”
