Bock Audio Captures a Tube 47


David Bock, the man behind Bock Audio, has captured the sound of the vintage Neumann U47 tube microphone in the new Bock 407. Bock gained most of his critical insights into the 47’s sound by servicing vintage units in his shop. “T e Bock 407 has that smooth, creamy midrange you associate with a 47, along with the signature proximity eff ect that vocalists like Robert Plant and Frank Sinatra used so famously,” said Brad Lunde, president of TransAudio Group, which will distribute the Bock 407 in the United States. “It sounds stunning. Importantly, David designed the 407 to use new ‘old stock’ materials: materials that are in current production and that replicate the properties of vintage materials that are no longer being made. T e Bock 407 is aff ordable, consistent, reliable, and, when the time eventually comes, easily serviceable.” T e Bock 407 borrows its power supply and amplifi er from the Bock 507 and adds a custom k47-type capsule that David Bock prototyped and adjusted to meet requirements. T e microphone has a cardioid pickup-pattern and ships with a remote power supply, a professional spider-type shock mount, and a custom 20ft cable that connects the microphone to the power supply. T e Bock 407 is shipping now. www.transaudiogroup.com
