Telefunken Announces ELA M 260 Tube Mic Stereo Set
Telefunken Elektroakustik has announced the ELA M 260 Tube Microphone pair, a new stereo Set that comes complete with three capsules for each microphone, plus one dual power supply and flight case.
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. Now 53 years later, the designers at Telefunken have emulated the concept in this new version.
Each microphone in the Stereo Set features three capsules: 260 cardioid, 261 omnidirectional and 262 hypercardioid. The new M 960S provides power to both microphones from a single power supply. The microphones also feature NOS TELFUNKEN EF732 vacuum tubes, custom audio transformers, and come in the same “flint gray” finish made popular by the R-F-T AR-51 microphone.
Also included are two 25-foot Accusound tube microphone cables with right-angle XLR connectors, two wooden microphone jewel boxes, two shock-mounts, and a flight case for safe transit. Also now available is the ELA M 260 Stereo Field Recording Set with interchangeable capsules, Novuscell 20-hour rechargeable battery pack, charger, and accessories.
No pricing or availability has been announced.
