Telefunken C-12

  • Brand: Telefunken
  • Item ID: SKU-1848
$13,499.00

The large diaphragm vacuum tube-based C12 is a fantastic choice for all types of instruments, lending itself especially well to drum overheads, acoustic guitar, and vocals. Its silky smooth top end provides plenty of air without sounding harsh or artificial. Its midrange speaks clearly and articulately, capturing the source with a natural presence. Its low end is tight and focused, perfectly balanced with the rest of the frequency range. If there were ever a microphone that was the epitome of classic, hi-fidelity sound, it would be the Austrian-designed C12.

 
Originally developed by AKG Acoustics in 1953, the C12 is ...

Telefunken ELA M 251 T

  • Brand: Telefunken
  • Item ID: SKU-2748
$15,849.00

TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik introduces the new ELA M 251 T, a microphone featuring the newly developed CK-13™ capsule. While based upon the classic ELA M 251 models, the ELA M 251 T adds a very modern twist. That twist is the implementation of Alloy 2213™ as the diaphragm membrane material for the CK-13™ capsule. Alloy 2213™ is an amalgam of Titanium and Aluminum, which was originally developed for the aerospace industry.

Traditionally gold has been sputtered onto Mylar™ for the diaphragms of the historic CK-12 capsule. By employing Alloy 2213™, which is far more rigid than gold, TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik has developed ...

Telefunken U-48

  • Brand: Telefunken
  • Item ID: SKU-2751
$13,499.00
10 years after the development of the ubiquitous U47, the U48 was released with one variation to the U47; it had "bidirectional" (figure 8) capability. The bidirectional capability can be very useful in more "ambient" recording environments where the engineer recording the sound does not want to hear as much of the room ambience as might be recorded with an omnidirectional or cardioid pick-up pattern.

According to the book Recording The Beatles, the U48 was one of George Martin's favorite microphones when actually "recording The Beatles." Utilizing the same M7 capsule, BV8 output transformer and VF14K vacuum tube as ...
