SNAMM11: TELEFUNKEN Introduces ELA M 260 Tube Mic Stereo Sets
Now shipping with cardioid, omni, and hyper-cardioid capsules, plus dual power supply 21/07/11
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik has introduced the ELA M 260 Tube Microphone Stereo Set, which comes complete with 3 capsules for each microphone, plus one dual power supply and flight case. Here's all the details from them...
The Stereo Set was first introduced in 1958 by Gotham Audio as a package for the Neumann U-47 and U-48 microphones that were distributed in the United States. TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik liked the idea, so 53 years later, the concept is reborn.
Each microphone in the Stereo Set features 3 capsules (260 cardioid, 261 omni-directional, and 262 hyper-cardioid), and the new M 960S provides power to both microphones from a single power supply. Also included are two 25' Gotham Audio GAC7 tube microphone cables with right angle XLR connectors, two wooden microphone jewel boxes, two shockmounts, and a flight case for safe transit. The microphones also feature NOS TELFUNKEN EF732 vacuums tubes, custom audio transformers, and come in the same "flint gray" finish made popular by the R-F-T AR-51.
Also being introduced at NAMM is the ELA M 260 Stereo Field Recording Set with interchangeable capsules, Novuscell 20-hour rechargeable battery pack, charger, and accessories.
For those who prefer the Decca Tree style of recording for film and classical music, TELEFUNKEN is also introducing a three ELA M 260 Tri-Mono Recording Set with 3-channel, 2RU rack mounted power supply, and 3 interchangeable capsules for each microphone. Pricing and Availability:
