"The Lawson L47S microphone is a fantastic sounding microphone. It is hand made with precision and care to give the owner a lifetime of service. It has the same sonic strengths of microphones costing several thousand dollars more and it is built like a tank (and it looks like it would cost a million bucks)."

The L47S (no longer in production) was a long body version of the L47FET. This review has been included because the L47S is essentially the same mic as the L47FET (with the exception of the long body). The L47S was the recipient of the coveted Pro Audio Reviewer's Pick Award in 1998.

For Gene Lawson, Microphones are Golden

"The passion to create the best tools to serve art, rather than the bottom line, lives on. There are few better modern day examples than Gene Lawson . . . "

Lawson Microphones

Tube/FET Combo

"The finest compliment I can pay to the Lawson Tube/FET combo package is that it proved to be so versatile and near-limitless in its applications that I bought it . . . "
