This single Telefunken M60 FET Amplifier Body is sold as only the amp portion of the modular microphone. The field effect transistor circuitry in the M60 amplifier gives users the benefits of a fast transient response and higher SPL handling when using the TK6x series of microphone capsules. Users can also choose the M260 version of the amp (available separately) for its warmer tube overtones when desired.

Sonic Characteristics

The M60'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 stringed instruments and percussive sources.

Circuit Design

Utilizing a proprietary circuit topology, this reinterpretation of the classic FET mic amplifier produces exceptional transient response and SPL handling capabilities. Carefully selected and tested components are hand-plugged into gold-plated circuit board traces to provide an ultraclean, true Class-A discrete amplifier with a frequency response of ±2 dB 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.

Construction

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.

Accessories Required

No mic capsules, cables, or other required mic accessories are included with the amp body. The mic body will work the TK60 (cardioid), TK61 (omnidirectional), and TK62 (hypercardioid) microphone capsules.
