Telefunken TF51 Copperhead Overview

The Telefunken TF51 multi-pattern tube condenser microphone offers a smooth midrange tone, a balanced low end and an open, detailed high-end frequency response that sounds great on a wide range of vocals and instruments. This workhorse mic is well suited for recording vocals, acoustic guitar, piano, violin, percussion, 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 TF51 mic's C-12 style edge-terminated capsule, 6072A vacuum tube, and German-made Haufe output transformer give the mic its smooth, open, and airy character. Like the classic Telefunken C-12 and 251E mics, that signature sound features a fairly neutral midrange with a small presence boost in the 3 kHz range and a larger one at 10 kHz for nuanced high end details that stand out in the mix.

The TF51 features a polar pattern switchable between cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure eight, giving it additional flexibility for a wide variety of uses. An external power supply, connecting cable, stand mount, and shockmount are included.
