...a hammer...just strikes me as odd.



Then how do you think the microphone feels?

One thing I have noticed is a relationship between Flea Microphones and Wunder. Originally Wunder bought the bodies from Flea. I also noticed that Flea and Wunder build basically the same microphones, U47, C12, M49, M50.  Wunder is a USA distributer for Flea.

I pose the question of when buying a Wunder Mic, are you just buying a Flea?

BTW, Barry sent me his Tele-USA U47M, and I took the basket off, put it in the wood vise, and flattened it a bit.  The profile isn't exactly the same as my Neumann, but it's surely an improvement.  I didn't trust the welds on the basket to try to flatten it any further.  

BTW, I wish they nickel plated the basket screws, and did a translucent switch.  That would look so much nicer.  Maybe they changed that in the last couple years?

I also don;t understand why Tele USA didn't make their badges the same as on the real ones.  They did it on the 251.  It would have looked so much cooler.

I believe Wunder is the U.S. importer for Flea.  At least that is what was written to me some months ago in an email from Flea.


My... My... U-47... What have you done???!!!
