PVC was the original diaphragm material used on U47's before it was replaced by Mylar. It is more brittle and harder to work with, slightly more sensitive to moisture - but oh that sound!
Fluid and accurate high ends froma large diaphragm tube mic! Others have done a masterful job of recreating the original M style capsules where the PVC diaphragms are actually glued to the back-plate, however they are not adjustable afterwards. We have dared to create a capsule using screwed down back-plates following the K capsule designs of later years, which makes the capsule tunable. And there are no dedicated anchor screws in our capsules to interfere with their tuning. The unique sound is an evolution in the traditional 47 sound.
We have sought to evolve the concept all along rather than to recreate the wheel. OrigInal U47's used a steel vacuum tube. We use hand made German tubes of the highest order.
Our capsules are made more precisely, more elegantly, than the capsules of old. What we have come up with is not only affordable, but superior to all previous incarnations of the U47.
