I'm also interested in obtaining this, though I only really care about the PCB.

Hello,

Wich kit are you looking for, he made 2, one with a U47 body kit en one with a clone body

I think, I still have two of the clone body kits I was planning to build, later I build 1 of the MK-U47 kits.

If you are interested I wil look them up.

Kind regards

Hi

Thanks for that

I was planing on doing the MK47 as it fits my SCT700 Microhphone
http://wiki.diyrecordingequipment.com/projects/ioaudio-mk47-tube-mic/

Looking at this MK-U47 this looks interesting too but one thread said it would cost a lot more to do, is that because it needs the Flea U47 Kit for it ? just not sure exactly which body is needed here.

I read that the MK-U47 is closer to the original microphone but perhaps sounds a little detailed in sound.

Ill have a look into this today !

The mk47 is the "cheap" one.  It was designed around a more universal PCB, and you would put it in a variety of chinese bodies.

The mku47 is the fancy expensive one, and the body alone is like $700+.  I believe both came with the same transformer, and the circuit in a u47 has about 6 parts in it, but the mku47 has a little tag board just like a vintage u47, rather than a PCB.  The MKU47 was the most accurate kit clone until poctop started offering his body kits, which are at this point part for part accurate to a real one I believe.

Hello,

I have two of these: http://wiki.diyrecordingequipment.com/projects/ioaudio-mk47-tube-mic/

The MK-U47 is not for sale, and yess a lot more expensive.

But I do have a extra power supply ready to go, so for one kit I kan add a connection cable and power supply.

I will see if I can organise some pictures.

Hey thanks

Im still not sure so Im looking into D-EF47 vs the MK-U47, Ive heard samples of the MK-U47 compared to the MK47 and prefered the MK-U47 and looking at the D_EF47 this also looks good, so more research needed here before I decide which.

You Actually got an Aputis body!?  :o I'm in search of a u47 body, any thought on what you'd sell your mic for?

Yes I got like a dozen from him until 2018,then he finished this model. Mic is 1500EUR, I can send many samples these mics are highly regarded by the local classical music /jazz studios,mics are very reliable I can send spare tubes also.
here is an example with David Liebman on sax:

Nice. I'm sure it's worth it. I'm more in the market for a body, as I have most of the parts to build one. thanks!

Thankyou guys, I have replied

I am open to fully compleated microphones (I do love to build, but this would saves me time to make the album recording rather than microphone building!!!!) either MK-U47 or D-EF47
