The FLEA 48 Vintage Microphone is a replica of the U48, with a F47/49 capsule (an exact replica of the K47/49 capsule), a BV8 transformer, and TELEFUNKEN EF14, UF14, or VF14 tubes. It is made of duraluminium, nickel plated, and available only in short body with matte nickel plated grille.
Its figure 8 polar pattern eliminates large room ambience, unlike an omni-directional pattern such as the FLEA 47 or U47.
The full set includes the mic in wooden box, cable, shockmount, and power supply (Modern Design or a Copy of the vintage style PSU).
Its features include:
- A directional cardioid-eight pattern
- 35Hz-18kHz frequency range
- 20mV/Pa (14mV/Pa) sensitivity at 1kHz, 50/200 Ohm rated impedance, - 500/2000 Ohm rated load impedance.
It is also packed in a safety portable case and boasts SSL analogue attitude to digital recordings. The Variable Harmonic Drive circuit introduces a blendable mix of 2nd or 3rd harmonic distortion when input gain is increased.
PSU is switchable between 100V and 240V, currently set to work on 240V. Fuse has to be changed for 100V operation. EU power cord included.
