Producer/Engineer Justin deBlieck Picks TELEFUNKEN TF47

South Windsor, CT, January 2023 – Justin deBlieck, also known as JD, has added TELEFUNKEN’s TF47 large diaphragm microphone to his recording studio where he has created a steady stream of chart-topping hit records. After a decade on the road as guitarist/vocalist of successful rock bands, deBlieck has switched into the role of full time producer, songwriter and mix engineer.

An essential tool in deBlieck’s hit-making studio is his TELEFUNKEN’S TF47 microphone from the Alchemy mic series. Designed, hand-built and tested to strict quality standards in TELEFUNKEN’s Connecticut headquarters, the Alchemy Microphone Series is TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik’s TEC Award-nominated next generation of large diaphragm condensers.

“I’ve never had a microphone work so consistently across such a wide variety of vocalists and their individual styles,” deBlieck says.

The TF47 is a new design based on the “German” sound, drawing inspiration from the iconic U47. With a deep low end and a forward midrange, the TF47 is excellent for adding depth and presence to any source. These characteristics make it especially ideal for recording vocals, guitar amps, and drums.

During his recording studio career, deBlieck has achieved: RIAA Certified Gold Single, #1 Active Rock Charting Single, multiple Billboard top 10 Singles, as well as NHL and MLB placements.  His recent work includes Motionless In White, Fit For A King, Sevendust, Crown The Empire, SAUL, Ovtlier, VRSTY, Lorna Shore, and many more. deBlieck’s foremost microphone of choice is the TF47.

“Ranging from the most intimate to the harshest performances it leaves me feeling confident that if I do my job, the TF47 will do its job,” deBlieck explains.

Benefitting from over a decade of in-house microphone design and production, the Alchemy Series is an evolution and expansion of past TELEFUNKEN models. Boasting a custom designed headgrille for transparency and openness, hand-plugged circuit boards, and premium selected components and transformers, no detail has been left unaddressed.
