TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is proud to announce the inclusion of the new TK51D capsule in the AR-51 and AR-70 STEREO microphone systems. This new dual-membrane edge-terminated CK12-like capsule offers a larger surface area than the original TK67 capsule, resulting in a frequency response with an extended low end and a smoother, open high end. The new TK51D capsule brings the AR-51 and AR-70 sonically closer to the classic edge-terminated capsule based ELA M 251E, C12 and C24 microphones.
Starting October 2012, all newly manufactured AR-51 (serial # 760 and above) and AR-70 Stereo (serial # 026 and above) microphones will ship from the lab with the new TK51D capsule. Owners of original AR-51 and AR-70 Stereo microphones interested in the new capsule design are eligible to swap out the original TK67D for the alternative TK51D for $199 plus return shipping. This price includes the cost of the new capsule and mounting hardware, as well as the labor to install, retest, tune and calibrate the microphone for optimal performance.
If you have any questions or concerns about the capsule in your microphone, please feel free to reach us directly via email at email@example.com.
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik proudly announces the latest editions to their dynamic microphone range: the M80 Wood Series. Available in two classic wood like finishes, the M80 Oak and M80 Cherry offer the same sonic characteristics found in the M80 Standard microphone. Guaranteed to catch the audiences' eye, the M80 Oak and M80 Cherry look and sound great on almost any application.
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik has created the M80 to give the user a superior alternative to the midrange-laden character of the "industry standard microphone." Featuring a wider frequency response and higher SPL capabilities the M80 delivers condenser-like performance in a rugged dynamic design, producing a microphone equally suitable for voice, instruments or drums on both stage and in the studio.

TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik of South Windsor, CT is introducing at AES 2012 the new M81 Reggae version of its popular universal dynamic cardioid microphone. The M81 Reggae, featuring a 3-color red, yellow and green paint finish and a Lion of Judah graphic is a tribute to the internationally known reggae artist Toots Hibberts of Toots & The Maytals. Frederick "Toots" Hibbert is widely recognized as the man who coined the word "Reggae."
In comparison to the M80, the TELEFUNKEN M81 retains the same minimal proximity effect, superior feedback rejection, and articulate mid-range; however, the top end is pulled back a bit, yielding a flatter overall frequency response, making it ideal for lighter sounding voices, as well as electric guitar, percussion and rack toms.

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 by Gotham Audio. TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik liked the idea, so 53 years later, the concept was reborn.
The Stereo Set of ELA M 260 microphones is delivered with a single dual power supply capable of powering both ELA M 260s at once, and a standard leather bound locking flight case. This insures that your microphones will have the ability to travel together [reducing potential environmental conditions which could add variance to the microphone's sonic character]. Read More . . .
The AR-51, AK-47mkII, and CU-29 microphone systems, now being offered in matched stereo sets, feature a custom dual power supply capable of powering both microphones at one time, as well as a locking flight case that contains both microphones, cables, shock mounts, and wooden mic boxes. All the electronic components in each system are matched sonically and electronically, including matched capsules, transformers, and vacuum tubes.
The R-F-T AR-51 was designed to incorporate the amplifier circuit of the C12 and ELA M 251E into a more affordable package than its Diamond Series counterparts. This circuitry has been a favorite for hi-fidelity stereo pair recordings for decades. TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik has taken this classic sound and developed the AR-51 Stereo Set. The R-F-T AK-47 MkII began as a unique design to incorporate key elements of classic circuits such as the U47 and M49. These design decisions created a microphone with a rich and warm low-mid frequency response ideal for vocals, bass (acoustic and electric), brass instruments, and drums. Since its introduction, the R-F-T CU-29 Copperhead has proven itself equally useful on vocals, acoustic instruments, guitar amps, and drums. The amplifier in the CU-29 Copperhead features a new old stock TELEFUNKEN 6AK5W vacuum tube, Lundahl LL1935 output transformer, and a single-membrane version of the large diaphragm capsule used in the AR-51 and AK-47 MkII.

Introduced at the 133rd AES Show in October, 2012, Telefunken Elektroakustik's new Solid Color finishes for their popular M80 Dynamic microphone line were inspired by The Mars Volta, who took it upon themselves to paint their M80 in solid white. TELEFUNKEN is now making the M80 available in a variety of solid colors from their custom shop.
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik has created the M80 to give the user a superior alternative to the midrange-laden character of the common dynamic stage microphones. Featuring a wider frequency response and higher SPL capabilities, the M80 delivers condenser-like performance in a rugged dynamic design, producing a microphone equally suitable for voice, instruments or drums on stage, as well as in the studio.
