what mic will be better for my needs?
This is very subjective but.......
Go with the Peluso P12. I love the VTB, but the P12 probably has the edge since it does the C12/251 inspired thing well. The 2247 just doesn't sound like a real U47 to my ears even though it sounds great. And the TLM 49 sounds more like an Announcer's Mic to me more than anything else.
Then replace the original 6072 tube in the P12 with a NOS GE Five Star 6072 to give you bigger and better body without a loss of clarity.
