    Great on acoustic guitar and hand percussion

    We're very happy with our new Telefunken ELAM 260. Now that we've done a few recording sessions and a shootout with the Neumann KM184, we can provide an informed opinion. On acoustic guitar the ELAM 260 and the KM184 are similar, but the differences are definitely there. The 260 is more open and and airy, and the low end is tighter and better defined. On djembe the difference becomes more obvious. The ELAM 260 seems to have much better transient response, so the djembe sounds much more immediate, more like being in the room with it. By comparison the KM184 sounds like listening to a recording. The recordings were made on a Focusrite Liquid 56 (flat - no preamp emulation) and playback was on JBL 4410A speakers powered by an Alesis RA-500 amp. If you can swing it, buy this mic. You won't regret it.
