Telefunken TF29 Overview

The Telefunken TF29 cardioid tube condenser microphone offers a balanced, natural tone with warm midrange frequencies, a rich low-end, and additional highs for presence and clarity. This workhorse mic is well suited for recording vocals, electric and acoustic guitar, brass, and other instruments and is also very effective as a room or overhead mic for drums.

Part of Telefunken's Alchemy Series of large-diaphragm tube condenser mics, the TF29 mic's all-brass k67-style capsule, new old-stock American-made 5654W vacuum tube, and Swedish-made Lundahl output transformer give the mic it's distinctive, bold, and full "copperhead" sound. That signature sound features an approximate +4 dB boost in the 20 to 100 Hz range for added bottom while the high end is boosted by about 2 dB at around 13 kHz and 4.5 dB at approximately 18 kHz. The additional highs help to balance out the extended low end and keep the mic from sounding muddy.

The TF29 features a cardioid polar pattern that focuses audio capture in front of the mic, great for a wide variety of applications. An external power supply, connecting cable, stand mount, and shockmount are included.
