SNAMM10:Telefunken Mic Updated


TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik has introduced the new MkII version of the R-F-T AK-47, one of the company's most popular and affordable microphones. Here's what they have to say about it...
Featuring a dual-sided, gold-sputtered capsule and a NOS (New Old Stock) TELEFUNKEN EF-732 vacuum tube, the new AK-47 MkII includes a transformer upgrade to the historic BV8 found in the U-47 and U-48 microphone classics of the past.
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik has conducted extensive research in the historic design and transformer-manufacturing source for their BV8 output transformers. These BV8 transformers are then meticulously manufactured to these exacting historic specifications dictated by TELEFUNKEN's extensive library of historic technical documents.
Through continued research, the AK-47 MkII's new amplifier better employs the extended low frequency capabilities of the original 1950's transformer design. Additional modifications have introduced premium quality components into the circuit layout in order to take full advantage of the extended frequency response capabilities.
Careful attention has been paid to current management utilizing wide, direct traces and large ground planes within the amplifier in order to increase low frequency articulation, and lower the noise floor of the tube amplifier for better overall detail.
Comprised of a dedicated power supply with remote polar pattern control, elastic-suspended clasping shock mount, and wooden case, the AK-47 MkII system is one of the finest microphones available in the under $2000 price range.
