Telefunken ELA M 260 small-diaphragm tube condenser microphone Condition: New with Mogami Gold Cable


Focused Sound with Smooth Tube Tone!

Since the early 1960s, the Telefunken ELA M 260 small-diaphragm tube condenser microphone has been one of the most widely acclaimed and highly sought-after classical recording microphones on the planet. You’ll be hard-pressed to find an engineer who’s used an ELA M 260 on any kind of acoustic instrument who didn’t instantly fall in love with this mic, plus it sounds absolutely amazing on vocals. And since it comes complete with three interchangeable capsules, you’ll be able to use your Telefunken ELA M 260 microphone in any situation

Updated circuit design for impeccable sonics

When Telefunken introduced their reissue of the ELA M 260 tube microphone, modern manufacturing standards compelled them to blend historical accuracy with an updated circuit design — and the results were stunning! 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.

Three interchangeable capsules deliver infinite recording possibilities

When you pick up a Telefunken ELA M 260 tube mic, it’s like you’re getting three high-end condenser microphones for the price of one. That’s because Telefunken ships each ELA M 260 off with three interchangeable capsules, the classic TK60 cardioid capsule, the wide-open TK61 omnidirectional capsule, and the tightly focused TK62 hypercardioid capsule. Each of these bayonet-mount small-diaphragm capsules gives the ELA M 260 a slightly different tonal quality in addition to its pickup characteristics, making it more versatile than you’d ever imagine.

Bundled with a complete set of high-quality accessories

No cardboard boxes or vinyl sleeves here! Telefunken ships the ELA M 260 with a full set of accessories worthy of this iconic condenser mic. In addition to its dedicated power supply and specialty cable, your ELA M 260 comes bundled with a robust shock mount and cradled in an elegant wooden microphone box. Our engineers know that serious studios need at least one pair of excellent small-diaphragm condenser mics, which is why the Telefunken ELA M 260 is standard equipment in Sweetwater Studios. Given its sonic excellence, immense versatility, and budget-friendly price tag, the ELA M 260 is also an incredible value. Highly recommended!
