The Legendary FET Classic Returns
Painstakingly recreated with the utmost attention to detail; United's take on a very classic and much desired condenser microphone that has been used on countless hit records. Realism and thickness that is true to the vintage sonics - now at an affordable price.

Let's FET It On
It's a labor of love. The UT FET47 represents several years of R&D, blood, sweat, and tears - all to capture the essence of one of the most beloved and classic solid state condenser microphones, and recreate it for the modern recordist. The UT FET47 features a custom Cinemag transformer, a custom Heiserman designed HZ-Series capsule, vintage polystyrene capacitors, and NOS (new old stock) FETs.
Custom parts. Vintage new-old-stock parts. Mix that together with each microphone being built in the USA by actual recording engineers, and you have the UT FET47.

Featuring Heiserman Designed Capsules.
Designed in collaboration with acclaimed capsule designer and manufacturer Eric Heiserman to develop a fresh take on the classic K47 German capsule design. Eric worked with the United team and their capsule manufacturer to develop a new capsule from the ground up. The capsule is open, articulate, and very three dimensional. This process required the analysis of everything from the sourced Mylar to the thread types of screws.

Custom Cinemag Transformers.
United spared no expense in auditioning many recreations of the original German transformer and decided on Cinemag Transformers in California. Their answer to the classic part is truly a piece of art; a large, hefty transformer made from a 'striped core' of interleaved sets of high nickel and steel laminations, and wound to the specs of the original. It's humbucking design delivers clean, quiet operation.

It's Not Just Another Mic - It's A United.
Choosing the best microphone for your needs couldn't be any more difficult these days. With so many options on the market, and so many claiming to have the vintage sound and failing to deliver, it can be overwhelming.
The UT FET47 represents United Studio Technologies' true passion for microphones, and was built with a holistic-design approach. With over 50 years of combined industry experience, United has spent years on research and development on this microphone.
