At the 123rd AES convention in New York City, Telefunken USA will introduce the Ela M 260 ($1,495), a newly constructed version of the small diaphragm condenser microphone that was first manufactured in 1959. Telefunken USA describes the small tube mic as "an exceptional sounding microphone for a wide selection of applications [that] is especially well-suited for drum overheads and for acoustic instruments of all types."
The Ela M 260 features a NOS (New Old Stock) Telefunken EF732 tube and is packaged with a set of three interchangeable capsules (cardioid, hypercardioid and omni). The microphone system comes complete with wooden microphone box, 10-meter (approximately 32-foot) Gotham Audio cable, owner’s manual and 10-year warranty. Also included is an adaptor to allow the use of some AKG CK Series capsules, and other capsules made for JZ/Violet Design and Blue Microphone systems.
The entire line of Telefunken USA microphones will be on display at AES in booth #1108.
