South Windsor, CT, August, 2007 – Goo Goo Dolls co-founder John Rzeznik had a Telefunken Ela M 270 stereo tube microphone personally delivered to him backstage by company founder and CEO Toni Fishman.  The Goo Goo Dolls are in the middle of a three-month world tour and performed near Telefunken | USA headquarters in South Windsor, CT.

The Goo Goo Dolls, were formed in 1986, in Buffalo, New York, by guitarist/vocalist John Rzeznik and bassist/vocalist Robby Takac. In 1997, Rzeznik was approached to write a song for the City of Angels soundtrack, and the end product was “Iris,” which propelled the band to stardom, as it stayed on top of the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay charts for 18 weeks, and was nominated for three Grammys in 1998, including Record of the Year.

“We are big fans of the Goo Goo Dolls,” says Toni Fishman.  “John is not only an exciting performer and talented songwriter, but he takes recording seriously and is active as a record producer.  He has his own professional recording studio and previously has purchased our “Long Body” U47 with the rare VF14 tube, an Ela M 250E, and also a matched pair of our RFT MkIIs, all with that classic vintage Telefunken sound.”

An exact reproduction of the world’s rarest tube microphone, the Ela M 270 is one of a new line of microphones which faithfully recreate the legendary vintage Telefunken sound.  Detailed reverse engineering has resulted in meticulous reissues of the classic Telefunken microphones.
