Discontinued Products

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.

R-F-T Series

The R-F-T Series was developed in 2005 to meet the needs of the emerging project studio market. These microphones utlize standardized metalwork and structural chassis from overseas as the microphone platform, with circuits that borrow heavily from the classic Austrian and German vacuum tube based designs. This practice cut out a substantial portion of the overhead costs of custom metalwork and molding, therefor allowing a lower cost alternative to the Diamond Series microphones.

M16 MkII

M16-Discontinued-Product

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

AK-47MkI-Discontinued-Product

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.

M216 Matrix

M216-Discontinued-Product

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.

M216 Stereo

M216-Discontinued-Product

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.

M216 X-Y

M216-Discontinued-Product

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

The “F” Series was developed in 2004 as “no frills” versions of the Diamond Series microphones. By removing the flight case and offering a “basic” style power supply sourced from overseas, the ELA M 250F, ELA M 251F and M12F were presented as affordable versions of the popular ELA M 251E and C12.  Each microphone utilized the same premium capsule,  new old stock vacuum tube, European made output transformer, and USA made metal housing as its Diamond Series counter part. The F series was discontinued at the end of 2007.

ELA M 250F

ELA-M-250F-Discontinued-Product

F Series version of the ELA M 250, featuring Cardioid and Omnidirectional polar patterns.

ELA M 251F

ELA-M-250F-Discontinued-Product

F Series version of the ELA M 251, featuring Cardioid, Omnidirectional, and Bidirectional polar patterns.

ELA M 12F

ELA-M-250F-Discontinued-Product

F Series version of the ELA M 251, featuring Cardioid, Omnidirectional, and Bidirectional polar patterns.

V Series

The “V” Series product line was developed around a private stash of new old stock, Austrian-made CK12 capsules. In 2006, TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik acquired a private collection of historic CK12 capsule parts which were meticulous restored to original specs. These capsules were ofter mated with additional new old stock components like the rare AC701 (in the ELA M251V) or VF14 (in the U47V) vacuum tubes,  which were also utilized in this series of microphones.

Diamond Series

TELEFUNKEN’s Diamond Series of microphones was born out the desire to develop restoration parts for some of the worlds best vintage vacuum tube based microphones. Even after investing in the tooling and machining for new parts and materials, some key components are no longer in production, and are simply unobtainable.

ELA M 250

ELA-M-250-Discontinued-Products

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

Discontinued Product 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.

ELA M 251

Discontinued Product ELA M 251

The TELEFUNKEN ELA M 251 is the historically accurate recreation of the vintage model originally manufactured by AKG.

A distinguishing characteristic of the 251 is addition of the bidirectional polar pattern of the CK-12 capsule. The lack of the "E" or "Export" designation means the microphone features the renowned AC701 vacuum tube.
