The Telefunken M61 is a small-diaphragm omnidirectional FET condenser microphone designed to deliver fast transient response and accurate, yet musical frequency reproduction for musicians and recording engineers in home, project, and commercial studios. The M60 FET body features a custom-wound transformer, an active FET transistor, and a Class-A discrete amplifier. The included TK61 capsule utilizes a 6-micron, gold-sputtered membrane and exhibits an omnidirectional polar pattern.
The M61's 130 dB maximum SPL, 20 Hz to 31.5 kHz frequency response, low self-noise, and fast transient response make it ideal for critical capture of a wide variety of instruments and room ambience. The supplied shockmount isolates the microphone from vibrations that would otherwise be transferred through the mic stand. A windscreen is included for reduction of noise from gusts of air. The M61 includes an XLR cable and a zipper carrying case.
