Telefunken TF-17 Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

A workhorse from T-Funk's Alchemy series, the TF17 FET condenser serves up the mid-forward "German sound" you know and love, without the vintage price tag.

From Telefunken's Alchemy Series, the TF17 joins the ranks of Telefunken's vintage-inspired phantom-powered condenser microphones. Combining an iconic mid-forward "German" voicing with modern FET technology, the TF17 is sonically bold with a punchy transient response, high SPL handling, and very low self-noise. It features an extended low frequency response, strong midrange, and a smooth top end. Whether the user is looking to add weight to a source or for a smooth voice to compliment, this microphone's rich character can enhance sound sources including voice, drums, bass, electric guitar, and piano. Designed with all recording environments in mind, the TF17 is perfect for home, studio, or stage.

The TF17 features a K47-style center terminated capsule, premium through-hole components and a high-quality UK-made OEP/Carnhill output transformer.
