Telefunken Elektroakustik M-61 - FET w/ TK61 Omni-directional Capsule (Stereo Pair)

  • FET-based solid-state condenser microphone
  • Designed to utilize same interchangeable TK6x
  • 6-Micron 15mm gold-sputtered membrane
  • Flat frequency response from 20 Hz to 5kHz
  • Ideal for critical recording applications
  • Includes 2 x M61 microphones, 2 x 5-meter XLR cable with right angle female connectors, 2 x elastic shock mounts, 2 x foam windscreens, and zipper carrying case

With over a year and half of development and beta testing with top recording engineers, the newly designed M60 FET (Field Effect Transistor) small diaphragm microphone is TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik's first non-vacuum tube, FET-based solid-state condenser microphone. The M60 FET Series is designed to utilize the same interchangeable TK6x capsules as the TEC Award-winning ELA M 260 small diaphragm tube microphone.

The M61 FET Omni-Directional package includes one M60 amplifier paired with a TK61 omni-directional polar pattern capsule. The TK61 features a 6-micron gold-sputtered membrane measuring 15mm in diameter, and offers a large, open sound perfect for capturing the ambience and vibe of your instrument or recording environment to breathe life into any recording. The frequency response is flat from 20 Hz to 5 kHz, with a smooth, airy presence peak at 8 kHz. Utilizing a unique proprietary circuit topology, this re-interpretation of the classic FET mic amplifier produces an exceptional transient response and SPL handling capabilities.

Carefully selected and tested components are hand-plugged into gold-plated circuit board traces to provide an ultra-clean true Class A discrete amplifier with a frequency response of +/- 2dB from 20 Hz to 50 kHz. The output is matched with a custom American-made transformer that offers an especially low self-noise and a typical THD+N of 0.015% or better, making it ideal for critical recording applications.

The M60 FET's incredibly quick transient response captures nuances and subtleties with impressive precision and clarity. This results in an extremely detailed sonic image with definition and presence, perfectly suited for the complex character of stringed instruments and percussive sources.

The M60 FET amplifier body is finished in a durable, lightly textured black powder coat adorned with the historic TELEFUNKEN diamond badge. The microphone's XLR connector shell complements the look with a matte black nickel plated finish engraved with the model and serial number. The TK6x capsules feature a bright nickel plated enclosure with a fine gold mesh pattern.

The M61 FET Omni-Directional STEREO SET ships complete with (2) SGMC-5R 5-meter XLR cables with right angle female connector, (2) M761 elastic shock mounts, and (2) foam windscreens, all packed in a FC62 dual microphone zipper carrying case.
