TELEFUNKEN Introduces Two New Drum Mic Packs at NAMM

DC6 & DC7 Feature TEC Award-Winners

January 22, Winter NAMM 2016

TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik of South Windsor, CT, is introducing two new comprehensive drum microphone packs at Winter NAMM 2016. The company has assembled the three unique voices of its TEC Award-winning Dynamic Series microphone line, in combination with two matched small diaphragm FET condensers, and packaged them as the 6-microphone DC6 Drum Pack and the 7-microphone DC7 Drum Pack for drum recording and live performance applications.

Each microphone set consists of the M82 handling kick drum duties, the M80-SHB on snare, the M81-SH for toms, and the M60 FET cardioid for cymbals or overheads. Both the DC6 and DC7 ship in heavy-duty hard shell HC87 flight cases and include multiple drum mounts (M782, M784 and M785) and an SGMC-5R five-meter XLR cable with right angle female connector for each microphone in the set.

The DC6 and DC7 Drum Microphone Sets include:

  • One M82 with M782 mountThe switchable M82 is a robust large diaphragm end-address dynamic microphone designed for kick drum and vocal broadcast applications.
  • One M80-SHB with M784 metal and M785 plastic mount
    The M80-SHB is designed for snare drum and vocal applications where a lower profile microphone with right angle XLR cable is needed.
  • Two M81-SH with M784 and M785 mountsThe M81-SH was designed to complement the M80-SH, with the top end pulled back a bit, yielding a flatter overall frequency response making it ideal for tom and percussion. The DC7 pack includes an additional third M81-SH.
  • Two M60 FET with M761 elastic mountsThe newly designed M60 FET (Field Effect Transistor) small diaphragm microphone is TELEFUNKEN’s first non-vacuum tube, FET-based solid-state condenser microphone. The drum pack includes two identical M60 FET amplifiers and two matched TK60 cardioid capsules for overheads or cymbals.
  • Six SGMC-5R five-meter XLR with right angle female connector
  • One HC87 Hard Shell Flight Case

MSRP for the DC6 pack is $1995; for the DC7 $2195.
