The ELA M 260 Small-Diaphragm Tube Microphone Tri-Mono (Decca Tree) Set from Telefunken contains a matched set of three ELA M 260 microphones intended for traditional stereo recordings of orchestral ensembles, live performances, and much more. The set includes a single, 3-channel power supply, omnidirectional, cardioid, and hypercardioid capsules, shockmounts, protective cases, cables, and a rugged flight case. The Tri-Mono (or Decca Tree) configuration places three omnidirectional microphones on a reverse T-bar (sold separately) slightly over the head of the conductor. The result is a strong stereo image with the addition of the center channel.

The ELA M 260 is engineered for accurate reproduction of instrument and vocal signals with pristine detail and warmth. While Telefunken may not have produced a historic replica of the original ELA M 260 (as in the Diamond series), this version will achieve an equal level of performance and sound made famous by the original. Its interchangeable-capsule design gives the microphone its flexibility. The custom adaptor is designed to allow AKG CK-series capsules and Neumann bayonet-style capsules to be used as well. The ELA M 260 is fitted with a Telefunken EF-732 vacuum tube.

Note: Reverse T-bar not included
