Telefunken ELA M 260 Stereo Set
Special Order

Focused Sound with Smooth Tube Tone!

This Telefunken ELA M 260 Stereo Set of small-diaphragm tube condenser microphones lets you capture any acoustic source in all its vibrant glory. You'll be hard pressed to find an engineer who's used a pair of ELA M 260 microphones and didn't instantly fall in love with them. What's more, the ELA M 260 Stereo Set sounds great on vocals and drum overheads too. And since both mics come complete with three interchangeable capsules, you'll be able to use your Telefunken ELA M 260 Stereo Set in any situation.

Telefunken ELA M 260 Stereo Set Small-diaphragm Tube Condenser Microphones at a Glance:

  • Updated circuit design with old-school roots for vintage tube tone

  • A trio of interchangeable capsules deliver infinite recording possibilities
  • Bundled with a complete set of high-quality accessories
Updated circuit design with old-school roots for vintage tube tone

When Telefunken introduced their reissue of the ELA M 260 tube microphone, modern manufacturing standards forced them to juggle historical accuracy with an updated circuit design - and the results were amazing! A premium new-old-stock EF-732 vacuum tube gives the ELA M 260 all the warmth and air that put the original model on the map. At the same time, a custom-wound output transformer supplies your ELA M 260 with the kind of clarity and headroom you seldom get with a vintage-style microphone.

A trio of interchangeable capsules deliver infinite recording possibilities

When you pick up a Telefunken ELA M 260 Stereo Set of tube mics, you're getting a ton of tone for the money. That's because Telefunken ships each individual ELA M 260 mic with three interchangeable capsules, the classic TK60 cardioid capsule, the wide-open TK61 omnidirectional capsule, and the tightly focussed TK62 hypercardioid capsule. Each of these bayonet-style small-diaphragm capsules gives your ELA M 260 microphone slightly different tonal qualities. Wether you use them together or on individual sources, you'll get great results from your ELA M 260 Stereo Set microphones.

Bundled with a complete set of high-quality accessories

No passe cardboard boxes or vinyl sleeves here! Telefunken ships the ELA M 260 Stereo Set with a full set of accessories worthy of this iconic condenser mic. In addition to its dedicated power supply (which easily powers both mics) and a pair of specialty cables, your ELA M 260 Stereo Set comes bundled with a duo robust shock mounts and an elegant wooden storage box.

Telefunken ELA M 260 Stereo Set Small-diaphragm Tube Condenser Microphones Features:

  • A matched pair of top-notch small diaphragm tube condenser microphones built for professional recording applications

  • An excellent choice for acoustic instruments, drum overheads, and even vocals
