TELEFUNKEN Introduces TF39 Copperhead Deluxe at AES

Microphone manufacturer TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is introducing the new TF39 Copperhead Deluxe large diaphragm multi-pattern tube microphone at AES in New York City. Designed, hand-built, and tested to strict quality standards in Connecticut, USA, the TF39 Copperhead is one of four new microphone designs in the Alchemy Series, TELEFUNKEN’s next generation large diaphragm condensers. The voicings of the new Alchemy Series are the TF29 Copperhead, TF39 Copperhead Deluxe, TF47, and TF51.


The TF39 Copperhead Deluxe is an evolution and expansion of the “Copperhead”, an original TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik microphone design that garnered fans for its natural and non-hyped tonality and unparalleled “quality for price”. The TF39 continues this reputation of outstanding sonic performance and value. It’s a workhorse microphone, accurately and honestly capturing vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, drums, and other demanding instruments.

With the addition of a dual membrane K67-style capsule, allowing for 3-pattern selection between cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-8, the TF39 Copperhead Deluxe added feature set gives the microphone greater flexibility and options in the studio. The cardioid-only version of the mic system is also available as the TF29 Copperhead. Sonically and component-wise, the two microphones are the same.

All systems ship in a sleek, compact, protective case for easy transport and storage. Included are two modern mount options, microphone dust cover, high-flex 7-meter cable, and an American-assembled power supply.
