Telefunken ELA M 260 Cardioid Tube Condenser Microphones Stereo Set

Capture detail and clarity in stereo! Set includes a matched pair of ELA M 260 small-diaphragm condensers and American-made dual-channel tube power supply.

The small-diaphragm ELA M 260 has become a staple for use in a multitude of recording applications due to its natural presence and high level of detail and clarity, especially in acoustic and classical applications. Keeping this in mind, TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik offers the ELA M 260 Cardioid Stereo Set.

The matched ELA M 260 Cardioid Stereo Set comes in a custom locking flight case that carries both M 860 cables, M 761 shock mounts, microphones, and an American-made dual-channel M 960S power supply unit. This power supply is fully regulated and will power one or both microphones simultaneously, and features a slow-ramping heater voltage to ensure vacuum tube longevity.

The ELA M 260 Stereo Set offers the user the knowledge and comfort that the tools they are using will give identical responses for their most important stereo recording.

ELA M 260 Cardioid Stereo Set system packages are supplied with a matched pair of interchangeable TK60 Cardioid capsules. Additional TK61 Omnidirectional and TK62 Hypercardioid capsules can be purchased separately.
