Small Diaphragm Condenser Series

The TELEFUNKEN Small Diaphragm Series features the vacuum tube-based ELA M 260 and the phantom-powered M60 FET microphones, both of which accept the thread-on TK6x Series capsules. Both amplifiers have their strengths, be it the ELA M 260’s natural warmth and clarity or the M60’s low self noise and ultra fast transient response. All assembly and testing of the Small Diaphragm Condenser Series occurs in TELEFUNKEN’s American facility. Depending on the system configuration, different capsule combinations will be included. Please see the System Specifications for more information. Additional capsules and accessories are available for purchase through our webstore.

ELA M 260

The ELA M 260 is one of the finest acoustic and classical recording tube microphones, offering plenty of tone with exceptional detail and clarity.


The M60’s incredibly fast transient response captures every nuance with impressive precision and clarity, resulting in an extremely detailed sonic image.
