TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik of South Windsor, Connecticut, recently sponsored two important and historic music festivals in their home state. The Litchfield Jazz Festival, a favorite of the public and critics alike has been going for the past 19 years and the Podunk Bluegrass Festival has been a yearly success since 1996. "We think it's very important that Connecticut has these annual gatherings to support good music and education," commented Alan Venitosh, TELEFUNKEN Director of Operations. "We are proud sponsors and gladly donated some of our mics to both festival organizations. We also had the important opportunity to beta test the newly designed M60 FET microphone, our first non-vacuum tube based design created for live recording and reinforcement applications."

Provocative Brooklyn band Rubblebucket has completed their new album Survival Sounds, utilizing two large diaphragm tube mics from TELEFUNKEN: the AK-47 MkII and the CU-29 Copperhead. Lead singer and saxophonist Kalmia Traver remarked, "We used the CU-29 & AK-47 for horns and vocals all over our new record. When I first tried the Copperhead I instantly fell in love with how my voice sounded with that hot Telefunken tube — sometimes I just practice and do vocal exercises with it just for the ego boost."

Telefunken Quotes:

"It's amazing how same-model microphones have very distinct characteristics, because of the subtleties of the capsules and the choice and condition of the tubes. The new U47 is a very finely crafted mic which fits beautifully into the collection that Frank put together."
