When you're looking for a new microphone, Telefunken is one name that you definitely don't want to miss. Ever since starting out back in 1903, they've been well-known for pushing the boundaries and setting the standard for microphone technology. Telefunken has worn a lot of hats over the years, making products as varied as guitar picks, audio cables and vacuum tubes, but it's always been their microphones leading the way. Today, mics are Telefunken's exclusive focus once again, and if you've never used one of their microphones before, it's safe to say that any of these choices will be like nothing you've ever tried in past.
A short list of artists who use and have used Telefunken mics includes Phish, Tim McGraw, Counting Crows, ZZ Top, Green Day and Snoop Dogg. That's more than enough to show what they're capable of, and when you put Telefunken to work in your own studio or stage performances, you just might find out what you're truly capable of as well. Having the right gear is an important part of getting great results, after all, and Telefunken easily qualifies as 'the right gear.'
Are you looking for the versatility of a dynamic microphone with the sound quality of a condenser? That's something you might have thought no mic could deliver, yet it's exactly what you can expect from the Telefunken M80 Dynamic Microphone. It's also available as a capsule via the M 80 Wireless Head, so you can even add it to your existing wireless system. Maybe you'd like to go back to Telefunken's roots with a classic tube mic? If that's the case, check out the AK-47 mkII Large Diaphragm Multi-Pattern Tube Microphone and the CU-29 "Copperhead" Cardioid Tube Mic, or turn things up a notch with a second channel and the ELA M 260 Small Diaphragm Tube Microphone Stereo Set.
No matter what your needs are for studio recording or live performance, you can expect to sound better than ever before once you've added Telefunken microphones to your kit. It's plain to hear the benefits of more than a century of experience, and that gives them the chops to meet and exceed the most demanding professional standards. To put it simply: if you want the pinnacle of microphone design and quality, you're in the right place to find it.
