Good Telefunken V72 Clone

Which company makes the best V72 clone?

Tab-Funkenwerk, although with Oliver's passing, I'm not sure about their current production status. I've heard good reviews about Mercury's recreations as well.

If you can get one around 1000euro I'd still go for the original. People are trying to sell them for (much) more nowadays though.

TAB funkenwerk stuff is kinda fragile build wise... that reminds me I should compare TAB V78m vs real V72 since I have both for some time now.

I like my Mercury M72s, but I have nothing to compare it to. Love to hear from someone who’s used ‘em both

I know of none who make a unit that sounds like a genuine V72.

Best to buy the real thing. Buy it from a German web site or dealer like Vintagetools in Morfelden, Germany.

looking at his avatar I'd say vacuvox..

anyway Plush is right, as he said, I'd also go with an original one, the prices are not much more expensive, afterall.. although the mercury's sound great, I never really a/b'd them..

Not out until January but can pre order now at a discount. I'm going to order a pair later this month. There is some sound clips on the page too.

I agree though, an original would be best of all.

BTW what is the most difficult part of cloning V72 to get right today? Transformers?

Oh... and there is also this piece of art: Knif v804.

We are Vacuvox. We manufacture high-end tube equipment. Our first product was the Vacuvox CL2 compressor limiter that is replaced by the Vacuvox U23. These are used by people and studios like Michael Brauer, Rafa Sardina, Paul Weller, Ralf Christian Mayer, Jeremy Stacey, the British Grove, Clouds Hill, etc

More about the U23 compressor limiter: Vacuvox U23
