New CU-29 Copperhead Mic & New M80 Wireless Head
Pictured is the new TELEFUNKEN CU-29 Copperhead vacuum tube microphone.
Award-winning TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is introducing two new products especially suited to the music and recording technology attendees at Winter NAMM in Anaheim.
New CU-29 “Copperhead” Condenser Mic with Vintage NOS Tube
TELEFUNKEN’S new large diaphragm condenser microphone has been in development for 18 months. The CU-29 Copperhead, newest addition to the company’s acclaimed R-F-T line, was designed by the in-house engineering team, with outside consultation from some of the world’s top amplifier designers.
The new CU-29 Copperhead is based around a unique circuit that features a New Old Stock (NOS) TELEFUNKEN vacuum tube, custom audio transformer, and a fixed cardioid large diaphragm capsule. Sonically, the microphone exhibits similar characteristics found in its
R-F-T series counterparts, the AR-51 and the AK-47 MkII.
New M80-WH Wireless Microphone Capsule Head
Originally developed for Green Day, the M80-WH dynamic wireless capsule is now available for a wide variety of live sound applications. These capsule head replacements are interchangeable with any of the screw-on-type handheld transmitters that receive a 31.3mm/pitch 1.0mm threading.
The M80-WH capsule’s directional pickup pattern and wide frequency response yields a microphone that provides an ideal blend of functionality, isolation, and a distinctively pleasing tone. The new M80-WH is sonically open, requiring little or no EQ to fit into a live or recorded mix. Minimal proximity effect gives the dynamic capsule a smooth, balanced presence that is neither boomy nor overpowering.
