Telefunken Elektroakustik, a name that has traditionally been associated with top-quality vacuum-tube condenser microphones, such as the ELA M 251E and the U 47, has unveiled its first-ever FET-based, solid-state condenser microphone at the 2015 Winter NAMM show, in Anaheim, CA.
NAMM has traditionally been viewed as the venue for introducing musical instruments including guitars, drums and keyboards, PA systems for gigging musicians, and venue lighting, along with every conceivable musical accessory.
These days, the sound quality you can achieve with a minimal investment in home studio recording equipment is amazing. But as nice as these affordable recording tools are, they all have sonic limitations. What do you do if you want to take your sound to the next level of quality?
If you could travel back to the year 1953, what would you do once you arrived? I don't know about you, but I'd immediately try to purchase some classic microphones. The desire to go back in time to buy recording equipment is what pushes the microphone manufacturer Telefunken.
