Telefunken U 48 overview

  • 1Description

The U48 Dual-Pattern Tube Microphone Stereo Set from Telefunken is a matched stereo pair of Telefunken U48 condenser microphones. Its cardioid and figure-8 polar patterns make it well suited for single and group vocal recordings, as well as instrument capturing. The famous M7 capsule features pristine tonal response and high SPL, and is coupled with Telefunken's BV8 output transformer and VF14K vacuum tube. The VF14K tube is Telefunken's first plug-and-play design.

The U48 has been sought after by leading recording professionals for capturing both vocals and instruments. With the U48 stereo set you have the ability to run X/Y, M/S, or Bluemlein microphone techniques. Designed for convenience, the set comes with a dual microphone-capable power supply included. Each component is hand selected to allow for as close of a match between the two microphones in each system as possible. Capsules are tuned to each other, and transformers and tubes are tested for matched gain and frequency response.
