Cardioid Condenser Microphone
The JM47 is a fixed-cardioid, large-diaphragm FET condenser mic with a switchable 10dB pad and high pass filter.
It was reportedly designed by Ted Fletcher, although its similarity to the MXL 2001/V67 circuit raises questions about its origin. Regardless of source, it was manufactured in China, and sold by Joemeek with an MSRP of $599.99.

We have come to realize that the great secret to producing superb sounds with depth and life, as so easily achieved in the 60’s and 70’s, is by using an audio balancing transformer output and as little electronics between the capsule and the transformer, to minimize the loss of subtleties and maximize sound depth.
The original model is easily distinguished from subsequent versions by its tapered body style. Since PMI’s acquisition of the Joemeek product line in 2003, and subsequent re-introduction of the JM47 in 2004, the JM47 has been built into a cylindrical body.
The Joemeek JM47a is also known as: JM47, JM-47.
The mic was released in 1999.
