Telefunken ELA M 251 overview

  • 1Description

The ELA M 251 Classic Tube Microphone from Telefunken is regarded as one of the most essential microphones in recording, and is sought after by leading industry professionals, recording studios and artists. The ELA M 251 sits in line with Telefunken's history of quality professional microphones, and its lineage can be traced back to the original Neumann U-47 microphone produced in 1947 (distributed by Telefunken).

The ELA M 251 with the Telefunken AC701 tube has the ability to capture unparalleled warm, rich and detailed sound as found in countless recordings. The capsule houses the famous CK12 1.0" dual sided gold sputtered diaphragm, and the switchable cardioid, omnidirectional and figure 8 polar patterns are accessible on the microphone itself. A dedicated power supply, cable, wooden storage box and flight case are all included.
