I'm glad to know that my translator is a good guy :-)
Thank you Klaus for bringing clarity to my doubts.
But I want to raise one more question.

I read that the UM70 head uses an M7

Would it be a good idea of this two options for you?

1- Search for a UM70 to extract the M7 and replace the capsule M7 of the U47
2-Find a vintage K67 around the world

3-Finding an M7 Gefell before 2000 (I read a message in the forum)

There was extensive discussion of this tube and its original supplier/marketer on Gearslutz.
The misrepresentation of the original VF14's qualities and quantities by the manufacturer on this thread and in promotional literature was considerable enough that he buried his product's chances for success as a VF14 alternative.

Human beings have a well-developed sense for being duped. In this case it did not take all that much effort or facts to reveal the tactic.

Hello José,
Give my regards to your translator. It (I assume it's machine-based) did quite a lyrical job.

If I understand you correctly, you want to know whether there is currently an M7 capsule available that duplicates the sonic performance and splendor of an original Neumann PVC capsule.

The answer is: no. There is only one company that currently manufactures a dimensionally-close copy of that capsule, and with PVC diaphragms, like the originals: Thiersch in Germany.

But I have my issues with the product: It is too mid-range forward (some may call it congested or sibilant), lacks the original's speed and clarity of the upper octaves, and its overall reproduction of more complex sound waves is sluggish and opaque.

At this time, the best M7 alternative for those who would like the genuine Neumann sound for their U47, U48 and M49 is still the K47 Neumann product.

Firstly, to comment that I admire your knowledge, I am very happy that there are forums of this caliber.
Please excuse my English helped me by a translator, so it is possible that they read some incongruence, which of course, is not written on purpose.

My question is simple.

Are there any micróphone, or microphone heads that use "exactly" the same capsule M7 ,as the old Neumann U47?

I hope to know of his knowledge as a child expects a toy, that is to say with a tremendous amount of illusion :-)

Hi, I didn't see it 'discussed to death' here. Am I missing a party elsewhere?
As it happens, I quite like it, provided it is the same as the Grove Hill device. I still like my particular VF14 more for some vocals, however. It 'compresses' slightly different and there's some more detail in the 'depth' still. Besides that, for overheads or rooms on percussion etc. I don't fell the difference is that important to me (To make things perfectly clear: there is a difference - it's a couple of dB hotter to start with etc.).
If I could get my particular VF14 cloned, now that would be something!

(...) As I understand it, the KM184's response would be similar to that of a 1/2" omni  B & K measurement mic. What would be the difference in your opinion?

The difference may be between truth and myth. Can you cite a source for your 'understanding'?

If those natural sounds are so offensive, no one would have bothered singing until modern processing electronics were available.

Is  there a mic out there which is insensitive to "slobbers",  "lip smacks" and "snot bubbles" but let all the "musicality" through? Now that's one "intelligent" microphone.  What's its make and model number?

Who wants to hear a singer's every slobber, lip smack, and snot bubble afforded by an "accurate" mic and/or "transparent" preamp? Microphones are best when they represent the capture of a musical performance in a pleasing way.
