The Mini K47 captures the tone of a vintage microphone, with modern performance specifications.
"K47" refers to the capsule design. Our K47 capsule is modeled after the one in the most famous microphone of all time. It provides a full, balanced tone without any harshness or hype in the upper frequencies. It will record less sibilance and fewer mouth sounds on your next vocal track. It will add weight, body, and tone to high strings and electric guitars. It will reduce the jangle in strummed acoustic tracks.
We created a clean, transparent circuit design. It lets the sound of the capsule pass through without alteration. Self-noise and distortion performance are on par with microphones costing significantly more. The circuit incorporates the best tricks we’ve learned from modifying and upgrading other companies’ products.
Every Roswell microphone is subjected to a 24-hr "burn in" on our proprietary conditioning fixture, then tested extensively prior to shipping: polarity, noise, frequency response, sensitivity, and more. We perform an acoustic sweep test and listen to every microphone before it leaves our facility.
The Mini K47 has a durable, heat treated finish. Each mic ships with our exclusive Cutaway shockmount, Roswell branded microfleece mic sock, and a flight case.

The Mini K47 "KD" Kick Drum Edition is distinguished by a black grille; this version of the mic has 15dB lower sensitivity, and is optimized for close applications on high SPL sources such as kick drum and floor tom. The circuit for the KD edition is a new design, developed and built by hand at the Roswell workshop in California.
