Moscow, May, 2012 -- TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik of South Windsor, CT, showed its microphones for the first time in Russia at two new shows. NAMM joined with Messe Frankfurt, producers of Musikmesse, Music China, Prolight + Sound, and Prolight + Sound Shanghai, to co-produce the two new trade shows in Russia.
"It's a young and emerging exhibition event," commented Alan Veniscofsky, TELEFUNKEN's Director of Operations, "but the opportunities in this market are very promising."
The Russian musical market is potentially the largest in Europe, characterized by a population of about 145 million people, a developed musical culture and sustainable growth trends. The volume of the Russian musical instruments and technologies market is estimated at USD 450 million.
"We were able to meet with other manufacturers to discuss trade in this growing market of the industry," added TELEFUNKEN'S Veniscofsky. "We also met with resellers and distributors to learn about the culture and who was buying what products and how new microphones are being marketed. We were able to interface directly with the end users, musicians, representatives of educational facilities and recording studios. The organizers of the event did a very good job and the trip was well worth it for us."
Moscow is a city known for music appreciation and performance; it's home to nearly 170 secondary music schools, 15 culture/arts universities, 32 concert halls, 173 theatres and many other musical venues.

TELEFUNKEN | USA acquired the TELEFUNKEN Trademark for North America in 2001, and in 2009 the company was named the Elektroakustik (translation: Electrical Acoustics) arm of TELEFUNKEN and awarded the exclusive rights to manufacture a wide variety of professional audio products and vacuum tubes bearing the TELEFUNKEN name, in over 27 countries worldwide. Recreating the classic TELEFUNKEN microphones has been a labor of love for the company CEO, Toni Fishman and the pursuit of that dream has culminated in the manufacture of what we at TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik believe are the finest microphones currently available in the world today.
Along with meticulously manufacturing historic replicas of classic microphones by hand in the USA, TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is now marketing the R-F-T series of microphones that take advantage of the globalization of technology, in order to offer recording microphones with professional sonic performance at reasonable prices.
Our latest additions to the TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik product line include a revolutionary new capsule design based on Alloy 2213™, an exceptional dynamic microphone [the M80], and a vacuum tube replacement for the original TELEFUNKEN VF14 which offers comparable performance in our U47 and new U48 microphones.
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik continues to expand, and research and development of new products is an ongoing process. Although based firmly on classic designs, TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is continuously looking forward. Important changes in our company and further expansion of our product line are slated for the immediate future.
