JZ Microphones has produced some great products, and two of their best are the V47 and the V67 microphones. These two models were created based on the vintage mics of the past, but they’re modern in every aspect as well. They were designed by Juris Zarins himself and they offer a great new look at the traditional sound of Neumann’s U47 and U67 tube mics. The two mics look identical on the outside, but inside, they’re somewhat different. Both, however, are Class-A discrete electronic devices, are fixed cardioid and phantom powered, and feature one-inch double-diaphragm capsules. They are also made using JZ’s patented Golden Drops technology.

Both of these mics sound great in the studio. They can pick up everything from low frequencies to loud sounds while leveling everything out and providing great clean output. The V67 offers a bit less low end, although the two provide almost identical results otherwise. On the other hand, the V67 sounds a bit better when recording drums, especially toms. When recording vocals, you’ll want to go with the V67. It captures richer midrange tones and really sounds outstanding.
One of the best features of the V47 and V67, however, is the fact that they have a very different flask design. This plus their shock-mounting system make it easy to place these two mics in very small or tight spaces where other mics may not fit. The ball and socket swivel also helps get these mics into small spaces while still making them perfectly useful. Both are impressive in the studio, and you’ll find you can record just about anything if you’ve got one of each on hand. The V67 may edge out the V47 due to its rich midrange, but both are overall very good mics. The two retail at $1,999 each.
