Telefunken ELA M 260-TM overview

  • 1Description

The Telefunken ELA M 260 Tri-Mono Set is a matched set of three ELA M 260 small-diaphragm tube condenser microphones intended for crucial recording of orchestras, ensembles, or individual instruments using the Decca Tree mic arrangement. Each mic features three interchangeable 15mm edge-terminated capsules in omnidirectional, cardioid, and hypercardioid polar patterns, allowing flexible configurations while delivering consistent tone and clarity. The EF732/5840W vacuum tube and custom Telefunken T60 transformer impart vintage-style sonics along with the low noise, high SPL handling, and wide frequency response expected for high-resolution applications.

The ELA M260 Tri-Mono Set is supplied with three 25' XLR 7-pin cables for connection to the included three-channel power supply, three vibration-isolating shockmounts, three wooden mic boxes, and a locking flight case to house the entire system.
