Lives for gear
 

Yeah, the good old U47/48 ...

In the seventies (and early eighties or so) many were thrown in the dustbin, especially here in Europe.
And the U87 was MUCH preferred.
Had there been an internet Gearslutz forum at the time, U47/48 lovers would have been collectively laughed at.
And the majority is always right, remember.
Funny thing is human hearing hasn't evolved much since.
That can't be it.
Must be some other mechanism at play.
Digital recording?
Nostalgia?
Rarity?
Group behavior?

Anyway, I like 'em.
And I do prefer them over vintage U87s, let alone new ones.
You have access to one of each now.
Shootout time?

Yes, hard to clone 100%.
