    In the specs for the Audio Technica 4047 SV mike they mention that this particular model was voiced like "the FET mikes" from the 60's amd 70"s. Please pardon my ignorance but just what mikes are they referring to? :confused:

    The (microphone) circuit consists of a FET (Field Effect Transistor) instead of a tube.

    OK, I had figured out the transistor part, I guess this N47 was an early adopter. Still this is not a mic I see mentioned frequently, what are the charateristics that make it make it worth emulating?
