Don Gunn is an enterprising recording/mixing engineer, producer, drummer, and programmer, based in Seattle. With credits that include Soundgarden, Peter Frampton, Death Cab for Cutie, and scores of others, Gunn relies heavily on his dynamic and condenser TELEFUNKEN microphones. "The core of my drum sound starts with an M80 dynamic on the snare, an M82 in the kick drum, and a pair of CU-29 Copperheads for overheads," Gunn explains. "This gives me the foundation for a larger-than-life sounding drum kit." He goes on to add, "At a recent vocal mic shootout with a powerful male singer, the Copperhead was by far the obvious winner. I am ridiculously impressed with these mics."

Telefunken Quotes:

"For those of you that are a little unshure about the M80 mic by TELEFUNKEN, well, I am about to funk you up with this rap. The name is right and it is James Brown tight, it is the Bomb, an easy win in any fight, yeah the M80 that be the One."
