The products listed below are no longer available for purchase, however, they are still able to be fully serviced and repaired by official TELEFUNKEN microphone technicians.
The M16 Mk. II is a large-diaphragm tube condenser microphone with a 9-way pattern-selection switch on the PSU.
AK-47 Mk I
The Ak-47 Mk I amplified circuit is a custom design by Telefunken that utilizes the TK47 capsule, BV47 output trans former and a NOS TELEFUNKEN EF-732 tube.
The M216 Matrix feature two complete M16 amplifier circuits built into a single microphone system. Both capsule were designed with multi-pattern capabilities giving the system the ability to record in X-Y, Mid-Side, and Bumlein configurations.
The M216 Stereo is a similar design as the Matrix, however, the bottom capsule is fixed into cardioid polar pattern with the top capsule allowing multi pattern variability.
Much like the other mic in the M216 series the M216 X-Y features dual capsules enabling stereo recording, however both capsules are in fixed in cardioid polar patterns.
F Series Products
Designed as a lower cost alternative to the premium Diamond Series microphones, the F series did not feature all of the "Frills." The microphone's tube and amplifier circuit were identical to the Diamond Series. The main differences in F Series microphone systems were:
• Use of TK-12 capsule, instead of the hand built CK-12 capsule.
• Imported "modern" power supply, rather than the historically accurate Made in the USA power supply.
• Finally packaging does not include the vintage style locking flight case.
ELA M 250F
F Series version of the ELA M 250, featuring Cardioid and Omnidirectional polar patterns.
ELA M 251F
F Series version of the ELA M 251, featuring Cardioid, Omnidirectional, and Bidirectional polar patterns.
ELA M 250
The TELEFUNKEN ELA M 250 is the historically accurate recreation of the vintage model originally manufactured by AKG.
A distinguishing characteristic of the 250 is the two pattern capabilities (cardioid and omni) of the CK-12 capsule. The lack of the "E" or "Export" designation means the microphone features the renowned AC701 vacuum tube.
ELA M 250E
Almost the same microphone as the ELA M 250 featuring the same polar patterns, capsule, and amplifier circuit. The difference between the two systems is the GE 6072a vacuum tube utilized in the amplifier circuit.
