Vintage King Hosts TELEFUNKEN Mic Summit Session During AES

Zane Carney & Friends Record at Vintage King Los Angeles

Los Angeles, CA, AES 2014 — Vintage King Audio, the leader in professional audio sales, studio consulting, and comprehensive gear servicing teamed up with TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik to make this a very special AES in honor of its return to Los Angeles. Dubbed the Telefunken Microphone Summit, Vintage King and Telefunken recorded a live session with Zane Carney and Friends showcasing a full range of dynamic and condenser models from the microphone titan.

The entire line of classic TELEFUNKEN microphones were on hand for this historic session, including the new M60 small diaphragm condenser mic, the company’s first FET model. Additional Telefunken mics on hand were the DD5 Dynamic Drum Pack for drums and the M81 Dynamic for guitars. Telefunken also supplied old favorites like the ELA M 251E, C12 and U47, in addition to newer mics like the AR-51, AK-47 MKII and CU-29.

In new gear announcements, Telefunken debuted their M60 small diaphragm FET mic at the recording session. While this new mic has been used in private by Steely Dan and on TV projects like “The Following,” the Vintage King and Telefunken session was the exclusive debut to the public during AES 2014.
