Telefunken Elektroakustik M61 FET Omni-directional Microphone Stereo Set

Telefunken Elektroakustik M61 FET Omni-directional Microphone Stereo Set Details

The newly designed Telefunken Elektroakustik M61 FET (Field Effect Transistor) Omni-Directional Stereo Set of small diaphragm microphones is TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik's first non-vacuum tube, FET-based solid-state condenser stereo microphone set; the fruit of over a year and half of development and beta testing with top recording engineers. The M60 FET Series is designed to utilize the same interchangeable TK6x capsules as the TEC Award-winning ELA M 260 small diaphragm tube microphone.

The M61 FET Omni-directional Stereo Set comes with two identical M60 FET amplifiers paired with a matched set of TK61 Omni-directional polar pattern capsules. The TK61 features a 6-micron gold-sputtered membrane measuring 15mm in diameter, with a surprisingly full low end, and a quick and accurate transient response. The frequency response is flat from 150 Hz to 7 kHz, with a smooth, airy presence peak at 8 kHz making it ideal for drum overheads, hi-hat and ride cymbals, piano, acoustic guitar, and other acoustic instruments.

Utilizing a unique proprietary circuit topology, this re-interpretation of the classic FET mic amplifier produces an exceptional transient response and SPL handling capabilities. Carefully selected and tested components are hand-plugged into gold-plated circuit board traces to provide an ultra-clean true Class A discrete amplifier with a frequency response of +/- 2dB from 20 Hz to 50 kHz. The output is matched with a custom American-made transformer that offers an especially low self-noise and a typical THD+N of 0.015% or better, making it ideal for critical recording applications.

The M61 FET's incredibly quick transient response captures nuances and subtleties with impressive precision and clarity. This results in an extremely detailed sonic image with definition and presence, perfectly suited for the complex character of string instruments and percussive sources.

The M60 FET amplifier body is finished in a durable, lightly textured black powder coat adorned with the historic TELEFUNKEN diamond badge. The microphone's XLR connector shell complements the look with a matte black nickel-plated finish engraved with the model and serial number. The TK6x capsules feature a bright nickel-plated enclosure with a fine gold mesh pattern.

The M61 FET Omni-directional STEREO SET ships complete with (2) SGMC-5R 5-meter XLR cable with right angle female connectors, (2) M761 elastic shock mounts, and (2) foam windscreen2, all packed in an FC62 zipper carrying case.
